He also went to Instagram and wrote, “I keep on wondering what I’ll do next….when Supernatural ends finally this year, then it struck me.”
Jensen’s character will be an important one in the series as Soldier Boy. Soldier Boy was one of the original superheroes who fought in world war two and turned into one of the most famous superhero celebrities at that time.
Eric Kripke, who developed ‘The Boys‘ series, revealed, “As Soldier Boy, the very first Superhero in the series, so he’ll bring in much humor, compassion, and danger to the role. I can’t wait to get on the set with him again and bring a bit of Supernatural to The Boys franchise.”
Secondly, in the third season, we can witness The Walking Dead actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan joining ‘The Boys franchise. As Kripke revealed that he has already discussed a role with him. The new joinings are expected to bring in more excitement in the series and to witness that. We have to wait for the show to get released.
The rest of the cast for ‘The Boys’ are expected to remain the same in season 3, which includes the following:
- Karl Urban as Billy Butcher
- Jack Quaid as Hughie
- Erin Moriarty as Starlight
- Antony Starr as Homelander
- Chace Crawford as The Deep
- Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve,
- Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk
- Jessie T Usher as A-Train

Cast Update: 1-Laurie Holden Joins The Boys Season 3 Cast to Play Crimson Countess.
Laurie Holden has also joined the cast of The Boys Season 3 to play the character of Crimson Countess. Crimson Countess is also one of the Supes who joins ‘The Seven’ same as Starlight in the comics. In the comics, She had a relationship with The Mind Droid(yet to be seen in The Boys series). In addition, Sean Patrick Flanery, Miles Gaston Villanueva, and Nick Wechsler were also announced for the third season of The Boys. They will portray the characters of Gunpowder, Supersonic, and Blue Hawk.
The Boys Season 3 Plot: What Expect in the Third Season?
The Boys is set in a timeline where Supeheros are considered as gods and super-celebrities by the general public. They work for the powerful organization Vought International, which markets and monetizes them apart from their heroic possessions; most of them are corrupt and sell-out. This is where our anti-heroes come in the group called “The Boys” lead by Billy Butcher (played by Karl Urban. Their main aim is to bring these Supes down.
The Season 2 ending was massive and a genuine game-changer on how the show will proceed further. Now The Boys are no longer hiding. Now they want their revenge. Homelander is still alive and well in the Vought tower. Don’t be surprised if Queen Maeve’s blackmailing plan now fails at some stage in season three.
The most significant development of all, though, appears in the final twist in the show that is whether congresswoman Victoria Neuman is operating for The Vought or against the organization? Perhaps she’s playing all parties in a try to take advantage of the chaos that will surely ensue.
Looking further ahead, we think Black Noir will definitely come back in the third season one of the most mysterious members of The Seven. The actor Nathan Mitchell who plays the role behind the mask revealed that Black Noir would have a future in the show.
Apart from that, Amazon Prime is also developing a spin-off series of The Boys, which will focus on a “Supe college” run by Vought. As per Variety’s reports, the spin-off series will explore the lives of hormonal, competitive supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities.
The Pilot Episode is reportedly being written by The Boys writer and executive producer Craig Rosenberg who now will also serve as the showrunner.
The Boys’ executive producers Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver will also serve as executive producers, alongside Neal H. Moritz and Pavan Shetty.
