The Boys spoilers follow.
The Boys' second season only ended a week ago, but showrunner Eric Kripke is already providing exciting updates on the superhero show's third instalment. (Aren't we lucky?)
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday (October 14), he posted a photo of the script for the first episode of season three.
It revealed the first episode of the new season will be titled 'Payback' and it's been penned by writer-producer Craig Rosenberg.
"#TheBoys Will Return. #Season3 Begins Filming Early 2021.You're Not F**king Ready," he wrote.
Given that he tagged the likes of Antony Starr, who plays Homelander, Jessie T Usher (A-Train), Nate Mitchell (Black Noir), Jack Quaid (Hughie Campbell), Laz Alonso (Mother's Milk), Karen Fukuhara (Kimiko), Erin Moriarty (Annie/Starlight) and Karl Urban, who portrays Billy Butcher, it seems safe to assume that most of the cast will be returning.
For now, it hasn't been confirmed whether Aya Cash will be back as season two big bad Stormfront. She was stabbed in the eye and then torched by Homelander's supe son Ryan while he was trying to stop her from killing his mother Becca (Shantel VanSanten).
Seeing as she was still alive – limbless, but alive – at the end of the finale, it's more than possible.
Claudia Doumit, who plays congresswoman Victoria Neuman, is set to have a much bigger going forward after *that* explosively epic reveal about her character in episode 8, 'What I Know'.
Supernatural star Jensen Ackles will also be rocking the boat a bit as Soldier Boy, a former acquaintance of Stormfront – from her Liberty days – who has been lifted straight from the pages of the graphic novels.
"There's a history of Vought that we're starting to map out because Soldier Boy has been a mainstay of Vought for decades," Kripke told TV Guide.
"He was like John Wayne there, and so as a result, we're writing the history of Vought and how all the characters weave in together. And yeah, now Liberty is definitely a part of that."
The Boys seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch now on Amazon Prime Video.
