Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy Is More Upbeat In The Boys Season 3 Bloopers

The Boys season 3 bloopers show a more fun side of the show’s actors. Based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book series of the same name, Prime Video’s adaptation developed by Supernatural creator Eric Kripke follows a relatively dark subject matter as the titular team of vigilantes attempt to combat the corrupt corporation known as Vought International and their premier superhero team, the Seven, led by the egotistical and megalomaniacal Homelander. His biological father, Soldier Boy, joined the show in The Boys season 3.

Other than Antony Starr as Homelander, the show stars an enormous cast that includes Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as Hughie Campbell, Erin Moriarty as Annie/Starlight, Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve, Jessie T. Usher as A-Train, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Chace Crawford as The Deep, Tomer Capone as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko, Colby Minifie as Ashley Barrett, and Claudia Doumit as Congresswoman Victoria Neuman. In The Boys season 3, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles joined the cast as Soldier Boy, one of Vought’s first American Supes who was believed to have been killed by the Russians during the Cold War. At the start of the season, Butcher begins investigating his death with the hope of killing Homelander once and for all, leading down a dark path, though audiences are getting a different look at all those involved.

Now, about three months after its finished airing, Prime Video has released the official The Boys season 3 blooper reel. The video shows off the show’s lighter side, especially as Ackles and Starr joke around behind-the-scenes, along with many of the show’s other stars. Watch The Boys season 3 bloopers below:

Ackles joined The Boys in season 3 and, partly due to the actor’s established following from Supernatural, immediately become a fan favorite. This is despite Soldier Boy’s questionable morality as a character, culminating in his attempted attack on Homelander’s son, Ryan. The Boys season 3 finale ends with Solider Boy incapacitated and in custody, raising many questions about what’s next for Soldier Boy in The Boys season 4.

Exemplified in part by The Boys season 3 blooper reel, Ackles has endeared himself to audiences with his performance as Soldier Boy. Therefore, it should largely be a no-brainer for The Boys season 4 to bring back the fan-favorite Supe. More importantly, his purpose has yet to be fully realized, as he is key to Butcher’s plan to take Homelander for good. Whatever is next for Soldier Boy in The Boys season 4, it’s a safe bet that Ackles will be suiting for a pivotal role next season which is currently in production.
