How to watch The Boys Season 3: When does Episode 1 drop?

The Boys Season 3 is finally here. The perfect remedy for your Marvel fatigue, this dystopian tale of ‘Supes’ and those seeking to stop them is back. Here’s how to stream The Boys Season 3.

Have you seen The Boys yet? The fabulously crude superhero series from Amazon Prime is a must watch, and now there’s a new series on the way imminently.

The show centres around a troop of corporate superheroes, known as Supes, who work for Vought International – a company founded by a former leading Nazi scientist. The goal is world domination and the PR-friendly ‘Seven’ Supes are the friendly face of the revolution.

Led by the twisted and corrupt Homelander (Anthony Star), and joined by the white supremacist Stormfront (Aya Cash), the conflicted Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligot) the mysterious Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell), pervert The Deep (Chace Crawford) and drug cheat A-Train (Jessie T. Usher).

Thankfully, The Boys are onto them and on a mission to bring down Vought. Led by the fearless Butchie (Karl Urban), Hughie (Jack Quaid), Annie (Erin Moriarty), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capone), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara), The Boys will stop at nothing to prevent the race of Supes taking over.

The first two seasons have been an absolute hoot for all, especially those bored of The Avengers or Justice League shenanigans over the last few years. Here’s where and when you can stream The Boys Season 3 before a quick recap on what happened in season 2.

The Boys Season 2 recap

*Season 2 spoilers ahead*

Things were turned up about a dozen notches in season 2. We learned Homelander has a superpower child by Butchie’s wife Becca. Both Becca – feared dead before S2 – and the child are being held in a Vought safe house.

We also discover that superheroes are not born, they are made with Vought’s Compound V serum. However, those powers can be passed down genetically, as is the case with Homelander’s son, Ryan, whom he swiftly kidnaps.

Things also get a little political thanks to the introduction of Congresswoman Victoria Neuman, a vocal anti-supe voice who’s able to explode people’s heads at will. The season ends with Hughie showing up to work for this double agent who’s on Vought’s payroll.
