1. When will filming begin?
It has already started! The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke shared this photo from the Toronto set on Wednesday. This marks the start of production and fulfills his hope that filming for Season 3 would begin in early 2021. Stars Karl Urban and Erin Moriarty also shared pictures from the set. what you can see here and here.
2. When will it premiere?
We don't have an answer to this question yet. But for what it's worth, the first season premiered in July 2019 and the second season in September 2020. So your guess is as good as ours.

3. Do newcomers join?
Yes! Kripke is working again with "Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles, who will switch to "The Boys" after the 15th and final season of the CW drama - to play Soldier Boy in season 3. On Amazon, Soldier Boy is known as "the original superhero" who fought in World War II and became "the first superstar and a pillar of American culture for decades".
Soldier Boy was a member of Team Payback in "The Boys" comics created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Darick Robertson, and Kripke told Entertainment Weekly that Season 3 will "investigate the history of this team and everyone on it."
4. Will Aya Cash's Stormfront be back?
"She's not dead. She's now 'blunt front," "Kripke told TheWrap when we asked him this question after Ryan (Cameron Crovetti) burned the Nazi soup to a not quite dead crunch in the season two finale. "You know, no comment on whether she's coming back, but she'll be that kind of maimed, burly little Nazi forever, which we thought was the right punishment for someone who believed in Aryan purity like that." And remember, she ages very slowly, so she has a long time to live in this messed up state. I think she deserves this. "

5. What do we know about the plot?
Well, Butcher (Karl Urban) will mourn the death of Becca (Shantel VanSanten) - which happened accidentally because Ryan actually tried to save his mother from Stormfront - that's for sure.
"Without talking too much about season 3, the butcher we see at the end of this season goes on emotionally, but with a vengeance," Kripke told TheWrap in October. “He's at war with himself. There's a part of him that's represented by Becca and Hughie (Jack Quaid) and Ryan. There's a part of them that has only one humanity. It's a small part, but it is one part. And the other part of him is his father and violence and anger and unprocessed anger. And those two sides of him are really at war in season 3 because he's angry. And yet he can't really be angry at that Being a kid. And so he's mad at Homelander. So he's a mess. And these two teams really have problems in season three. "
Meanwhile, Hughie is trying to fight Vought more safely by working for the task force led by Congressman Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) who conducts the Vought Congressional Hearings.

"Hughie accidentally goes into the lion's den," said Kripke. “You know, he has that kind of sword hanging over his head when he goes to work at the Federal Office of Superhuman Affairs, the FBSA. And you know, all the time there is this tension about who she really is. And sooner or later he's obviously going to discover it and we're really going to unpack who she is and why she does what she does. And I think that comes with surprises. "
More recently, Kripke announced that the season will also include an episode titled "Herogasm," which covers an infamous storyline from the comics. More about it here.
6. Is it released all at once like season 1 or released weekly like season 2?
Not a word on that either, but the move from the all-at-once release of the first season to the mixed binge / weekly model paid off enormously as the worldwide viewership increased by 89% in season 2. Not only that, but the other Amazon Prime series as well. "The Expanse" will copy this model for the upcoming 5th season.
Our guess: expect a weekly rollout for season 3.
7. What is the matter with the spin-off?
Ahead of the season two finale of The Boys, Amazon accelerated development of an untitled spin-off series set at a Vought-run superhero college. Kripke told TheWrap that the show, which has not yet been ordered from the streaming service, was "loosely inspired" by the comics' G-Men, an obvious parody of Marvel's "X-Men" character.
The spin-off series is produced by Kripke, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who developed "The Boys" for Amazon, as well as Executive Producer by Craig Rosenberg, who writes the pilot.
