The Boys Season 3 just dropped a new episode, and the Prime Video series set up an unexpected alliance heading into the latter half of the season.

So, when is the release date for The Boys Season 3 Episode 6 — and what can viewers expect when it arrives?

The Boys Season 3 Episode 5 picks up with Soldier Boy on the loose, and it doesn’t take long for the newly freed Supe to create problems. Ackles’ character appears to be experiencing PTSD, and flashbacks to his imprisonment cause him to lose control over his power. In “The Last Time to Look on This World of Lies,” he accidentally causes an explosion on a busy street. The devastation is enough to leave The Boys team feeling guilty about their part in his escape.

Of course, Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) is also dealing with the aftermath of Soldier Boy’s freedom. She was the first person to be hit with one of his unexpected blasts, and it renders her powerless. She’s thrilled about this development, but her abilities could certainly come in handy against Little Nina (Katia Winter). Still, Kimiko’s joy results in some musical moments in episode 5 — and how can we complain about that?

While Kimiko recovers, The Boys try to track down Soldier Boy. That’s probably for the best, since Homelander and Vought’s new CEO, Ashley (Colby Minifie), sweep the explosion under the rug. They insist that it’s safe for the public to go about their day, highlighting Vought’s negligence, especially now that Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito) is gone.

Fortunately, Butcher and his friends locate the Supe as he goes after his ex for revenge. However, Butcher doesn’t plan on stopping Soldier Boy’s destruction. In fact, it seems he’ll be enabling it. Much to M.M.’s (Laz Alonso) dismay, Butcher and Hughie enlist Soldier Boy to help them kill Homelander. It’s a risky decision, and it’s likely to have consequences in the coming chapters.

With Soldier Boy, Butcher, and Hughie poised to take on Homelander, things are likely to get intense when the release date for The Boys Season 3 Episode 6 arrives. So, when can fans expect the next installment?

New episodes of The Boys drop every Friday on Prime Video, though their 12 a.m. GMT release time sees them hitting the platforms on Thursday evenings in the U.S. As such, fans can look for episodes ahead of time.

Here’s the full release schedule for the Prime Video series:

  • Episodes 1-3: June 3
  • Episode 4: June 10
  • Episode 5: June 17
  • Episode 6: June 24
  • Episode 7: July 1
  • Episode 8: July 8

After episode 6 arrives, The Boys Season 3 will only have two installments to wrap things up. With that in mind, we can anticipate some escalation in this coming chapter.

What to expect when episode 6 comes out on Prime Video

There’s no preview ahead of The Boys Season 3 Episode 6’s release date, but IMDb indicates that next week’s installment is titled “Herogasm.” That means it’s likely to cover the much-anticipated storyline from the comics, which involves a bunch of Supes engaging in a giant orgy.

That alone is enough to have fans tuning in next week, but it’s not the only reason we’re looking forward to more content. Hopefully, we’ll also get further details about Butcher’s plans to take down Homelander. After all, the series is building to a major confrontation — and seeing Homelander face off with Soldier Boy is likely to be a highlight.

We’ll have to wait and see what next week’s episode has in store. Whatever happens, fans are in for another wild ride.

The Boys Season 3 Episode 6 debuts on June 24, 2022.
