The Boys Season 3 Will Adapt One Of The Comics' Most Risqué Storylines

Even if you haven't read the comics series that Amazon Prime Video's gritty superhero satire The Boys is based on, after two seasons of the show, you've likely gathered that the Supes are far from the idealistic Captain Americas and Wonder Womans we're used to. Many of the "heroes" on The Boys are actually just malignant narcissists who abuse their powers in displays of horrific brutality and fascist ideals. Based on a recently confirmed storyline for the show's third season, it looks like we'll also be seeing the kind of depravity they get up to behind closed doors.

In a recent tweet, Eric Kripke, who developed the series, posted a picture of the cover of a script for a season 3 episode entitled "Herogasm," along with the caption, "From day one, everyone dared me to make this episode. CHALLENGE MET MOTHERF*****S." Kripke had previously teased that an adaptation of one of the comics' most notorious plotlines, a spin-off series called The Boys: Herogasm, was in the works for season 3. Now it looks like we have confirmation that things are about to get weird. Like, really, really weird.

If the title didn't already tip you off, Herogasm takes the comics on a decidedly raunchy detour that mixes the series' commentary on hero worship and capitalist decadence with some X-rated antics. Those who have read the series have an idea of what audiences are in for come season 3. For those who haven't, well, buckle up, because it's going to be a wild ride.

What is Herogasm?

The spin-off series Herogasm centers around one of the biggest crossovers in superhero history. After a menacing alien threat is detected, Supes from all over must team up and jet off into space to defeat this existential challenge and save humanity. At least, that's what they tell the public, who maybe haven't realized that they get fed this story about a giant villain that requires every Vought-American hero to assemble and fight at least once a year. In reality, the alien threat is nothing but a convenient cover up. The Supes are actually all headed to a secret island resort to participate in the annual Herogasm weekend.

To put it mildly, Herogasm is a no rules, anything-goes bacchanal that sees the Supes getting to know one another much more intimately. We won't get into all the graphic details, but just imagine all the crazy stuff you've already seen them get up to while they are out and about in the real world, and then think of what they would be doing on a private island during a company-sanctioned free-for-all. Needless to say, it's not for the prudish or faint of heart.

As for how graphic the depiction of the event will end up being when it's adapted for The Boys, we'll have to wait and see. For fans of the comics, and anyone curious about what happens when two Supes uh ... get intimate, it's yet another reason to get excited for The Boys season 3.
