Kripke’s Comment On Season 3 and Soldier Boy
The showrunner of the series opened about the involvement of the Soldier Boy and a little back story behind its idea. He said that Payback was the seven before seven in the world of their show. He further said that they will be exploring the history of the team this season.
Previously, in season 2, we got to know that soldier boy was the first person ever who got injected by Vought founder Frederick Vought with Compound V. This compound was supposed to give the power to become superheroes. And, Soldier Boy was among many men fighting against Nazis in World War II.
The other members of Payback are Stormfront (gender-swapper with Aya Cash in S2), Eagle the Archer (also, appeared in S2), Tek Knight, and Crimson Countess.
Kripke later said that the reason behind bringing Soldier Boy and Payback’s story in season 3 is to tell the audience about how they get where they are today [the other superheroes]. Also, they will be able to tell the story of America and how the people got stuck in this upset situation.
The upset situation refers to the current situation of the world, where people are fighting for their rights; And, white supremacy, and systemic racism.
Release Date Of Season 3
The show was already renewed way back, and if it were not for the coronavirus, we might have been enjoying the new season anytime soon. But, sadly, everybody is stuck here, and so as the filming and production.
Luckily, the show will begin the shoot soon, in early 2021. So, we can expect the show to return to our screens in mid-2021 or by the end of it. The former two seasons are available to stream on Amazon Prime.
