Showrunner Erick Kripke is filling fans’ minds regarding The Boys’ third season, which promises to embrace the even hotter tone of superhero comics.
In an interview with The Wrap, Kripke commented that the long-awaited Herogasm is expected to occur in the season’s sixth episode but will likely be censored to suit the audience better.
The controversial and infamous arc is basically about a big orgy among people who have superpowers, the ‘Supes.’
“I mean, those dailies are insane. Like, if we showed everything we saw in the dailies, we for sure would be rated X” says Kripke about the footage.
The showrunner further comments that he has not been able to process everything that was filmed. However, the content is not appealing.
“So there probably will be a lot of self-censorship. But anyone who is a fan of the books and that particular volume of ‘Herogasm,’ I can just tell you, you’re definitely going to get the full ‘Herogasm’ experience. There’s just no question.”
He further explains that fans should stay tuned to the fictional Seven On 7 newspaper, as there will soon be many revelations about The Boys. “It will tell you, in real-time, how the world of the show is changing,” he assures.
