On Bluray and DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is the return of the Best-Selling Comic Book Series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson with THE BOYS Season 3.

It has been a year since the Stormfront scandal as they tried to catch Supes. Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) has moved up the ladder dating Annie January (Erin Moiarty) and she is co-captain of the Seven by CEO Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito). If that isn’t enough, Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) wants Billy (Karl Urban) to help him discover hold superhero team leader Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) died. In the meantime, Hughie meets with Tony who has claims about Neuman (Claudia Doumit) that she doesn’t believe about Red River.

So, off the Boys go to check out the death of Soldier Boy as Hughie discovers that Red River is actually an orphanage for kids with superpowers and learns the truth about Neuman. The stories that come out cause chaos and Gunpower (Sean Patrick Flanery) is confronted and tells the truth about Soldier Boy. Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) rejoins the group but he does so for very personal reasons and Homeland (Antony Starr) is on a televised tear of his own.

That has a double-edged sword as people rally around Homeland after his rant and thinks much more of himself than he should. Mallory (Laila Robins) tells the Boys what Payback has done with the CIA and that Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell) is messed up and Soldier Boy was hurt by a Russian superweapon. Butcher makes a plan with Little Nina (Katia Winter) to go to Russia.

Butcher ends up in Russia with the Boys and after Hughie does something quiet stupid, they discover a power blast that wreaks havoc. Butcher decides the Russians are responsible for what happened to Soldier Boy. Homelander is still dealing with his fallout but Neuman gets involved and causes problems of her own with Compound V.

Frenchie (Tomer Capone) takes Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) to get checked out and in the process, he is taken by Nina while Maeve uses Butcher. That doesn’t last long as Noir and Homelander get their hands on her as well. Edgar is out and Ashley Barrett (Colby Minifie) is in as CEO of Vought. Homelander finds footage of what Soldier Boy has been up to, Nina isn’t finished kidnapping and Butcher, along with The Deep (Chance Crawford) makes a decision about Homelander. That doesn’t stop the TNT Twins, Tommy (Jack Dooland) and Jessa (Kristin Booth) from throwing a party that goes all sorts of wrong.

Noir finds himself reliving what happened to himself and Soldier Boy. A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) gets his transplant from Blue Hawk (Nick Wechsler). Annie makes a discovery about the V24 drug that could affect everyone trying to use it. Homelander makes a big mistake going on another rank and the fall out is even worse than before. He also learns about his parentage which is a pretty good shock.

The showdown is about to happen when Homelander, Ryan, Hughie, Butcher, MM, Noir, Maeve and Annie. They all think they are in control but they will soon discover that isn’t the case and chaos ensue which is what they are good at. Neuman decides to join Robert Singer as his Vice-President which causes a new set of anger for Butcher and delight for Homelander!

THE BOYS is a huge production with a large cast of well-known actors that just sweep us all away with their antics. The Anti-Supe weapon starts it all and keeps the action and guessing going for all eight episodes (which never seems to be enough for us binge watchers). My family and I just love the series and talk about each episode and that should be made into a show on its own.

Urban leads this amazing show, he is actually one of my favorite actors for years and f@*king diabolical. It must be said that everyone looks like they are having a twistedly fun time making the show. Of course, it takes a lot of hard work but still, I actually enjoy watching a show that is such a wonderful mix of action, story and humor (even the dark humor that creeps in).

THE BOYS is just a fantastic show that has gained an audience that knows a good thing when they see it. Gather up your own group of supes and binge on Season 3!

In the end – never meet your heroes!
