If you haven’t watched the season 2 finale of The Boys yet, brace yourself for an explosive, surprising and bloody ending to Amazon Prime Video’s smash hit superhero satire.

Seasons 1 and 2 of the bloody and brilliant drama series have become one of Amazon’s most-watched shows of all time, breaking all sorts of records as fans devour the hilarious and outrageous antics of Billy the Butcher, Hughie and the notorious supes.

We caught up with Black Noir actor Nathan Mitchell to find out about season three, The Boys fan theories and the future for Black Noir after that unfortunate Almond Joy incident…

What is The Boys?

Based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys was developed  by  showrunner Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and executive producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver.

The Boys is one of the smartest, most irreverent and unapologetically badass shows on TV. Poking fun at superheroes, politics, religion, cults, media empires, social media and more, the show is ludicrously funny and a total original.

Who are the cast of The Boys?

Billy the Butcher (Karl Urban), Hughie  (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) are our heroes, The Boys.

Aya Cash joined the show in season 2 as new villain Stormfront.

The Supes of the Seven are Homelander (Antony Starr), Starlight (Erin Moriarty), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell).

Recurring stars in season 2 included Claudia Doumit, Goran Visnijc, Malcolm Barrett, Colby Minifie, Shantel VanSanten, Cameron Crovetti, PJ Byrne, Laila Robbins and Giancarlo Esposito as Vought boss Stan Edgar.

Jensen Ackles joins the show in season 3 as Soldier Boy, the original superhero.

What happened in The Boys season 2?

The even more intense, more insane season two found The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the  Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. 

In hiding, Hughie, Mother’s Milk, Frenchie and Kimiko try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, Starlight must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander sets his sights on taking complete control.

His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront, a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own.

On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes centre-stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalise on the nation's paranoia.

When is The Boys season 3 released?

Production on season 3 is likely to face severe delays due to coronavirus restrictions on filming.

The show’s first two seasons were released in late summer, 2019 and 2020. We suspect season 3 will be delayed until at least the very end of 2021. And even that may be optimistic.

Watch The Boys season 1 and 2 on Amazon Prime Video.
