The Boys Introduces New Vought Superhero Competition Series, Hosted by Starlight

It was revealed in the latest report from The Boys' fictional Vought News Network that the next member of The Seven will be selected via a new reality series hosted by superhero Starlight.

"This just in. It seems that the search for the newest members of The Seven is underway," newscaster Cameron Coleman (Matthew Edison) says in a clip from the "Seven on 7" news program posted on the Vought International Twitter account. "We've just received an exclusive report that an upcoming reality series, American Hero, will see 10 super-powered contestants compete for the two open slots on The Seven."

The anchor goes on to reveal the list of participating supers consists of Luckless, Livewire, Jetstreak, Europo, Moonshadow, Lonestar, Critter, Silver Kincaid, Supersonic, and Pitstop. Coleman also reports that the reality competition series will be hosted and judged by none other than Starlight (Erin Moriarty), who has a romantic history with one of the contestants.

"Sources say the contestants have already moved into the American Hero mansion outside of New York City and that filming is currently underway," Coleman continues. "Now we'll share more details as they come in, but I for one, am excited."

Fans of The Boys will recall that Season 2 of the series ended with The Seven only consisting of five official members following the removal of white supremacist Stormfront and the decision to deny The Deep's reappointment. Heading into the American Hero competition series, the current lineup of The Seven includes Homelander, Queen Maeve, Black Noir, A-Train, and Starlight.

The Vought News Network report came on the same day that both the teaser trailer and release date for Season 3 of The Boys were revealed. The teaser shows Starlight and Homelander posing for a photo op as the camera begins to zoom in on Homelander's face and he becomes more and more aggravated.

While the new season won't premiere until summer, showrunner Eric Kripke previously teased the first episode of Seasons 3 will be both "insane" and "special." Specifically, Kripke explained, "Without giving away any spoilers, I was just in editing yesterday, and we're doing something here in the Season 3 premiere that is not only I think the craziest thing we've ever done, it's got to be up there with the craziest thing anyone's ever done. Maybe it won't work. Who knows? But I'm just so high on this gag that we're pulling off. And it's certainly something nobody has ever seen before, probably for good reason. So all that's really exciting."

Seasons 1 and 2 of The Boys are streaming now on Prime Video, while Season 3 is set to debut on June 3.
