Faced with the impatience of the whole fanbase from the Serie The Boys on the networks as to the release of season 3, still not announced, the production decided to react in the best possible way: by trolling.
Superheroes, a symbol of competition on streaming platforms
Homelander, Billy Butcher, Huguie or Starlight remain on an impressive performance during the last season of The Boys, in terms of audiences on Amazon Prime, since the launch of season 2 had generated a record for being the most watched for an original creation.
While it is difficult to compete with Disney + in the field of superhero series ( Loki currently being broadcast, WandaVision ), Amazaon Prime found in The Boys to locomotives facing HBO Max and Watchmen, for example. But also and above all against Netflix, which recently launched its show Jupiter’s Legacy, which exploded in full flight since the series was not well received, neither by the public, nor by the critics. So much so that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 (the streaming platform has still ordered a spin-off, who will be called Supercrooks ).
What we know about season 3
If Disney is a hit with Loki, what about the long awaited season 3 of The Boys at Amazon Prime? We know that production is underway and that the series should be released at the end of 2021. As for recent information, one of the episodes of this future season will be devoted to theherogasm, very singular passage of the comics, in which the superheroes must face a common face against a threat to the planet, but which is in reality a pretext to indulge in a giant orgy.
Also, the concept art of the Soldier Boy costume, a new recruit for this season 3, was unveiled by costume designer Laura Jean “LJ” Shannon, and illustrator Greg Hopwood. The new superhero is modeled on the concept of Captain America and should be a parody of it.
But for now, still no date, and it begins to talk among the fanbase. Several fans made by their impatience on the networks, which had the consequence of triggering a troll on the part of the official account of the Amazon Prime series.. The latter tweeted: ” Every time you ask for the Season 3 release date, it will go back one day. See you in 2033 ! “. Jack Quaid, the interpreter of Hughie did not fail to add fuel to the fire by answering:” Yeah but … what month of 2033? “
Every time you ask when season 3 is coming out the release date moves back one day. See you in 2033!June 18, 2021
Yeah but… what month of 2033?June 19, 2021
Here is who should trigger again the community The Boys, increase their impatience and above all make them react again. Towards an interposed troll battle?
For now, series creator Eric Kripke described the challenges he set for himself in crafting upcoming episodes in an interview with Consequence of Sound :
I know, of course, that writing every season of a series gets harder and harder because all of your best original instincts to transpose have already been done. So, you have to start delving into some areas that you may not have thought of going into. “
I love my seasons when they are over. When I write them I say to myself: ” Man, how can we improve this? “I was talking to someone from my postal service the other day telling them that when I finally approve a montage, like the visual effects shot, it’s like a feeling of defeat for me since we don’t have any more time or money, and it just won’t get better.
Here are statements from a showrunner who seems ambitious in his work, and who tries to push the limits of his imagination in order to offer a season 3 from which we expect a lot. This once again revolutionized the codes of the universe of superheroes. Here is a perfect mastery of the art of teasing at Sony’s com service, in order to fuel the hype until a release date is announced.
