“The Boys” Season 3 Trailer Reveals Billy Butcher’s Super Status & Newcomer Soldier Boy

The official trailer for The Boys season three opens with Homelander (Antony Starr) on an apology tour. “I feel in love with the wrong woman,” Homelander tells one interviewer after another, referring to his partner-in-fascism and love interest from season 2, Stormfront (Aya Cash). That relationship got…messy, especially after it was revealed that Stormfront was a full-blown Nazi. So, Homelander is out there trying to tell anyone who will listen that it was all just a mistake and that he, chastened by falling for the wrong girl, has learned invaluable lessons.

As The Boys watchers know, Homelander is a very, very bad man, and while he’s hellbent on cleaning up his public image, in private, he’ll continue his murderous ways. The new trailer also reveals that he’ll now be up against a very different Billy Butcher (Karl Urban)—thanks to a serum delivered by Maeve (Dominque McElligott), Billy can become a supe (a superhuman for you not versed in Boys-speak) for 24 hours.

And then, the trailer also gives us our first glimpse at Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles), who seems to have some anger issues. He’s not the only new face around. The trailer also reveals newcomers Blue Hawk (Nick Wechsler) and the Crimson Countess (Laurie Holden). Meanwhile, returning champions include Hughie (Jack Quaid), Starlight (Erin Moriarty), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), The Deep (Chace Crawford), Frenchie (Tomer Capone), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara).

Check out the trailer below. The Boys season 3 hits Amazon Prime Video on June 3.

Here’s the official synopsis of The Boys season 3:

It’s been a year of calm. Homelander’s subdued. Butcher works for the government, supervised by Hughie of all people. But both men itch to turn this peace and quiet into blood and bone. So when The Boys learn of a mysterious anti-Supe weapon, it sends them crashing into The Seven, starting a war, and chasing the legend of the first Superhero: Soldier Boy. Season 3 arrives June 3rd, only on Prime Video.
