The Boys’ Antony Starr Calls Season 3 ‘My Favorite Season’
It’s only natural for actors to talk up their upcoming projects. But as production continues on The Boys season 3, the cast and crew aren’t missing a single opportunity to tell fans how bonkers the new episodes are going to be. Now we can officially add Homelander actor Antony Starr to this list.
Filming isn’t quite done yet. However, during a recent interview with TVLine, Starr compared the next season (which he described as “my favorite season for many reasons that I can’t tell you about”) to the previous two. Apparently, if the first two felt like “drinking beer,” viewers can expect a “Long Island Iced Tea” in season 3. What’s more, he went so far as to call the ongoing shoot an all-time career highlight.
“Oh, my God, [season 3] is hands down one of the most enjoyable seasons of TV I’ve had the good fortune of being involved with!” said Starr. “I had a great time on Season 2, and I thought we did something really cool there where we took it next-level in many ways from Season 1, and really, it’s just the extension of that.”
Starr isn’t the first cast member to tease that The Boys is upping the ante for its third season. Earlier this year, Laz Alonzo (Mother’s Milk) revealed that the makeup department used up more than three gallons of blood before production was even halfway finished. Showrunner Eric Kripke also confirmed that the new season will adapt the controversial “Herogasm” storyline from the comics. And Jensen Ackles, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Laurie Holden join the fray this year. So there are plenty of new characters to get excited about as well.
“I’m always curious to see what the writers, what these crazy people, are going to cook up,” added Starr. “And it’s a pretty great feeling in Season 3 to still be surprised and excited every time you turn a page in the material. All I can say is I truly believe the fans are going to freak out at season 3.”
Amazon still hasn’t announced a premiere date for The Boys season 3.
