    Eric Kripke Reveals The Boys Season 3 Premiere Title & New Details!

    Eric Kripke Reveals The Boys Season 3 Premiere Title & New Details! Now that all episodes of The Boys Season 2 are streaming on Amazon Prime Video, Eric Kripke has revealed the Season 3 premiere title as “Payback,” written by Craig Rosenberg, while also confirming they hope to begin filming in early 2021. #TheBoys Will Return.#Season3 Begins Filming Early 2021You’re Not Fucking Ready.#TheBoysTV @TheBoysTV @PrimeVideo @SPTV #SPNFamily @Sethrogen @antonystarr @JackQuaid92 @KarlUrban @ErinMoriarty_ @lazofficial @KarenFukuhara @The_JessieT @itsNateMitchell pic.twitter.com/sg0CdD74Pc — Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) October 14, 2020 RELATED: The Boys Season 2 Episode 8 Recap Kripke also teased a few details for Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy who will be making his introduction in the next season. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the showrunner discussed Payback, the name of Soldier Boy’s superhero team that Kripke says “was the Seven before the Seven,” adding, “We will be exploring the history of that team and all the members in it.” “One of the reasons that we’re getting into Soldier Boy [in Season 3] and that team, Payback, is we’re interested in exploring a little bit of how we got here,” Kripke explained. “Through the history of the supes, we can tell a little bit about the history of America and how we ended up in the current fraught position that we’re in. Soldier Boy gives us an opportunity to do that.” As the outlet notes, in the comics, other members of Soldier Boy’s superhero team Payback included Stormfront (Aya Cash), Eagle Archer (played by Langston Kerman in Season 2), Tek Knight (first name-dropped in Season 1), and Crimson Countess. In Season 2, The Boys are on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social-media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia. The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.” The show retains most of the comics (available for purchase here) boundary-pushing violence and sexuality while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame.

Season 1 and Season 2 are available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video. (Photo by Phillip Chin/WireImage via Getty Images)

    The Boys Season 2 Episode 7 Recap

    The Boys Season 2 Episode 7 Recap In the previous episode of Amazon’s The Boys, Stormfront revealed to Homelander that Vought’s true mission was white supremacy, and the Boys retrieved Lamplighter to help take down Vought. In The Boys Season 2 Episode 7, Victoria Neuman met with Lamplighter to testify before Congress, and Homelander brought Stormfront to meet Ryan. “Do It in Front of My Statue” Mallory arranged for Neuman to meet with Lamplighter. After she left, Butcher left Hughie to watch Lamplighter. Hughie sat with Lamplighter while he watched Supe-themed porn. When Hughie convinced him to turn it off, they saw on the news that Annie had been captured while meeting her mother. Hughie convinced Lamplighter to help him save Annie from Vought Tower. Lamplighter led the way through Vought Tower. Hughie found himself in the conference room. Lamplighter was upset that they removed his statue. He’d wanted to kill himself in front of it. He self-immolated. Hughie took Lamplighter’s hand for access throughout Vought Tower. He found Annie’s mother. The fire alarms going off gave Annie enough power to free herself. She found them in the hallway. Congressional Hearing Mallory and M.M. had gone to see Jonah Vogelbaum to convince him to reveal what he knew about Vought. He declined because of what could happen to his family. Mallory told M.M. that he should run away with his family. He called Butcher, who Judy had called away. She had lied to Butcher that his father, Sam, died to get him to see him. Butcher visited Vogelbaum and convinced him to testify to Congress about what he knew. During the hearing, just as Vogelbaum was about to begin his testimony, the heads of people in the room, including Vogelbaum’s, were exploding. Kimiko was important evidence against Vought, so Mallory tasked Frenchie with protecting her. As they watched over Neuman, Kimiko started teaching him her sign language. Brave Maeve Elena told Maeve that she would be staying at her sister’s. She couldn’t stop thinking about the people who Maeve let die on the plane. Maeve violently flipped a table when she couldn’t convince Elena to change her mind. Ashley found Maeve in bed with a man, flying in the face of the “lesbian” narrative that Vought was trying to push. When Annie had escaped, Black Noir found her. Maeve helped Annie and fed Black Noir an Almond Joy since he had a tree nut allergy. Lies Stormfront and Homelander arrived at Becca’s house unannounced. Homelander apologized to Ryan and introduced Stormfront as his girlfriend. Ryan showed them the Lego movies that he made about Becca’s favorite movies, and Homelander wanted to show Ryan his own movies. While Becca was working on dinner, Homelander and Stormfront flew Ryan over the Vought compound to show that his home wasn’t real. Ryan left with Homelander. Outcast At a party for Alastair, A-Train got The Deep a fish as a gift for helping him. Alastair asked them about Eagle the Archer, who had helped The Deep. However, Alastair had told them that Eagle had been spreading lies and that he was gone from the Church of the Collective. What did you think of this episode of The Boys?

    Exclusive: Aya Cash Teases What’s ahead in Season 2 of The Boys

    Exclusive: Aya Cash teases what’s to come in season 2 of The Boys While chatting with the You’re the Worst alum for her role in the upcoming horror-comedy Scare Me, ComingSoon.net got to explore The Boys‘ second season a bit deeper with Aya Cash as well as what’s to come from her chilling villain Stormfront! RELATED: Amazon Orders Spin-Off of Superhero Hit The Boys! With six of the eight episodes currently airing and audiences finally starting to see Stormfront’s true colors, Cash feels “grateful” that the season is far enough along that she can finally exhale and talk a bit more about the secretive nature behind her menacing character. “At the beginning in the first three episodes, the cliffhanger is very intense and the switch feels so drastic and is so disgusting and upsetting who she actually is that I’m glad we’re a little further past that so we can have better conversations around it,” Cash expressed. “I’m really looking forward to it all being out so that we can talk about it, because there are Stormfronts in this world, there is a literal Stormfront in this world, and I do think the conversations need to be had around it, so I’m looking to not having partial conversations but being able to look at it fully.” In addition to the introduction of her character, one of the major changes coming in to the second season has been the decision to release the episodes in a weekly format rather than the typical streaming plan of debuting it all at once and it has split audiences, with some arguing decrying their inability to binge it all at once while others are showing appreciation for being left wanting more. Though she also finds herself going “back and forth,” Cash ultimately sees the better in the model as outweighing some of the bad. “With those first three episodes coming out and the cliffhanger everyone’s going, ‘What?!’ and having to sit with it for a week, but that’s also a good thing because we should be thinking about these things quicker than the passing moment,” Cash stated. “I think what this season is trying to deal with, in terms of white supremacy, is not a conversation you should think about for a weekend after you binge, it’s something you should be continuing to have. Obviously The Boys is not the only conversation about this happening right now, but it’s helpful to have time to have that discussion. As an actor, it was really hard because I want to answer all the questions, I want to say, ‘Don’t worry, this will happen’ or ‘This is going to explain this,’ she is a bad guy, this is not us saying, ‘Whoops she said something stupid,’ this was done with intention. I think a little time is nice in this rapid-fire time and because of the pandemic and the way people are watching, let’s draw it out a little bit so that people can enjoy it for a longer time.” Click here to catch up on the second season of The Boys! Though still having to keep many of the plot details for the remaining two episodes close to the belt, Cash did tease that audiences are in for one specific treat with Stormfront in the coming weeks. “I think you’ll see — there is one of the best fight scenes coming up,” Cash excitedly revealed. “There’s been trailers that have little tiny clips of it so that’s not a spoiler, but there’s a huge fight coming to Stormfront.” In Season 2, The Boys are on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found.

    Amazon Orders Spin-Off of Superhero Hit The Boys!

    Amazon orders spin-off of superhero hit The Boys! After receiving even further rave reviews from critics and scoring large viewership from audiences, Amazon is looking to keep The Boys‘ success train rolling as they have begun development on a spin-off series alongside a third season of its flagship. RELATED: The Boys, Truth Seekers & More Part of New York Comic Con Lineup Craig Rosenberg, an executive producer and writer on the main series, is writing the pilot for the potential spin-off and is set to act as showrunner and executive producer for the new project alongside main series’ creator Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver of Point Grey Pictures and Neal H. Moritz and Payun Shetty of Original Film, while Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television will produce. The spin-off will be set in America’s only college for young adult superheroes, ineffectually referred to as supes, run by Vought International and is being described as “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive supes as they put their physical, sexual and moral boundaries to the test,” blending the pitfalls of a college series with the gritty competitive nature of The Hunger Games and heart, satire and raunch of the main series.
