The Advice Seth Rogen Gave To The Boys Showrunner Eric Kripke

Taking a critically acclaimed comic series and adapting it to television is never an easy job, especially when the source material is as violent and savage as "The Boys" by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. And yet, showrunner Eric Kripke has managed to bring Billy Butcher, Homelander, and Wee Hughie to Amazon Prime Video with style. Sure, it's not a perfect, page-by-page adaptation, but narratively, the show brilliantly uses the themes Ennis and Robertson explored in their comic series with its own unique flair.

‘The Boys’ Showrunner Eric Kripke Showed Off What Vought Set Its Sights On Selling In Season 3

A fictional world with superheroes is bound to be very different from the one we actually live in, but The Boys universe is only slightly more absurd than ours, at least when it comes to shameless corporations peddling gendered products. Showrunner Eric Kripke knows that better than anyone, which is probably why the second set of images we’ve seen from the set of Season 3 features lots of pink guns targeted toward women.

The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke has unveiled the first image from the highly-anticipated Season 3, which is currently in production in Vancouver.

The Boys Showrunner Eric Kripke Confirms Herogasm For Season 3

The Boys Showrunner Eric Kripke Confirms Herogasm For Season 3. Amazon’s The Boys does its best to honor the envelope-pushing nature of the comic that inspired it. Regardless, the show tends to play things a little bit safer than its source material. So it might come as a shock that one of the comic’s most risqué storylines is getting its own episode in season 3. Showrunner Erik Kripke previously teased that the infamous Herogasm arc would make its way into the new season. And earlier today, he took to Twitter to share the title page for the sixth episode. Check it out for yourself below.

‘The Boys’ Actor Laz Alonso Got His ‘Love Sausage’ Revenge On Showrunner Eric Kripke With A Holiday Gift

In the second season of The Boys, viewers got to meet the live-action version of Love Sausage, a Russian superhero from the comic book series whose power is having a graphically long… well, you can figure out from the name. As part of his debut, Love Sausage wrapped his super appendage around the neck of Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) and tried to choke the life out of him, which isn’t a superhero battle you see everyday. As revenge for putting him in the phallic scene, Alonso had a very special scarf made for showrunner Eric Kripke, who tweeted a NSFW photo of the holiday “gift.”
