Stop the presses; we have an update on the hotly-anticipated third season of The Boys. Premiering in 2019, the anti-superhero dramedy has become one of Amazon Prime Video’s most popular original series. Season 1 introduced the deceptive, harsh world of The Seven, a team of superheroes owned and controlled (to varying degrees of success) by megacorporation Vought. Season 2 dug deep into the polarized political landscape we find ourselves in and how real superheroes would be impacted while delivering a masterpiece of a character arc for Homelander (Anthony Starr). On Friday, September the 17th, Prime Video’s official Twitter shared a video of the cast announcing a wrap on filming of the upcoming season. Take a look below:

I liked The Boys season 1 well enough. However, I was absolutely blown away by season 2’s humor, political overtones, and Anthony Starr’s performance. Season 2 consistently surprised me, and every aspect of the production seemed to have been taken up a notch. The fact that Karl Urban indicates another jump in quality for season 3 in the clip is encouraging and very exciting. Actors say things like this a lot, and I don’t think people involved with a production are necessarily the best at gauging increases or decreases in quality. However, given the show’s track record, I think we’re safe to get a little excited for season 3. We still don’t have a release date for The Boys’ third installment, but I’ll be impatiently awaiting further information. With the explosive events of season 2’s finale and the new characters we’ll be seeing, I have no doubt the new season will be memorable.
