Homelander actor, Antony Starr, celebrates the return of Amazon’s The Boys with a photo from the set of season 3. One of the most popular television series to come out of Amazon, The Boys is a violent superhero series that acts as a criticism of the superhero genre. The series is so popular, in fact, that fans responded with outrage when Amazon switched to a weekly release format for The Boys, rather than releasing all the episodes at once.
Clearly, fans of The Boys are anxious for more in season 3, but when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States last year, the fear was that The Boys would have to delay production like so many other series. Despite this, The Boys crew was able to meet its goal of starting production on Season 3 in early 2021. Now, the cast and crew are sharing just a few behind-the-scenes photos as filming continues. Just a day before this post, fans got to see a first look at Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher this season via a photo posted to the actor’s Instagram.
Earlier today, actor Starr joined in the hype and posted a picture from The Boys set, commenting on just how early the crew had to wake up to film. Starr, who plays the superhero character, Homelander, shared an image of the boots from the Homelander costume, but didn’t show anything else from the set. At the very least, the actor seems excited to be working on the show again:

While The Boys season 3 may be in production, there is no release date for the new episodes yet. Viewers have guessed that season 3 might premiere late this year, but it would not be unusual for production to take longer this season. In addition to essential COVID-19 protections that may slow down production, The Boys is just a difficult series to produce. Actor Karl Urban has talked about the difficulty of working with the huge amount of prosthetics on the show, and how every actor has to bring their A-game to make each scene happen.
Hopefully, The Boys season 3 will be here sooner rather than later. Fans are already theorizing about season 3’s “Herogasm” arc and how new characters from the comics might be introduced. Whether these new characters appear or not, at least it seems that Starr’s Homelander will be back on The Boys being as abominable as ever.
