In Season 3 of The Boys, Homelander continues on his path of destruction

With Soldier Boy put on hold, Homelander (Antony Starr) is left with no one to rein him in and grows even more out of joint.

His growing popularity in the far-right movement and the company of his son Ryan (Cameron Crovetti) have only encouraged him further.

However, we can expect The Boys to be more united as Starlight (Erin Moriarty) joins the group after leaving the Seven.

Along with Hughie (Jack Quaid), Butcher (Karl Urban), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Kapon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) they are more focused than ever.
