A new piece of marketing material for The Boys reveals the in-universe "Toys for Voughts" program, which promises to give children incredibly inappropriate toys.
On Twitter, the official Vought International account shared an image of Homelander wearing a Santa Claus hat and a Christmas-colored cape and standing in front of a pile of presents. "Thanks to your super 'Toys for Voughts' donations," said the caption, "we bought 42 million Vought Action Figures, Vought Air Rifles, Vought Candy Cigarettes and more! All to patriotic American families who aren't afraid to say Merry Christmas. YOU are the real heroes." While the initial part of the post jokes about the inappropriate toys that Vought is giving to children, the latter addresses the "War on Christmas," a claim by some that Christmas is being erased or downplayed.

During the gap between seasons, The Boys has released a number of marketing materials used to keep up awareness of the show while also building the universe. Recently, the fictional Vought News Network (VNN) aired footage of Homelander (Antony Starr) apologizing for the debacle surrounding Stormfront (Aya Cash) in The Boys Season 2. Additionally, VNN provided an update on what happened to Matthew Culbert/Gecko (David Thompson) after Annie January/Starlight (Erin Moriarty) blackmailed him into stealing Compound V.
Based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's comic book series of the same name, The Boys is an Amazon Prime Video show that was developed for TV by Supernatural's Eric Kripke. While the TV series takes some major liberties with the source material, the core premise and cast of characters are the same. In the series, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) recruits Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) to join a team of people looking to keep super-powered people in check and do damage to Vought International, the corporation behind the creation of supes.
The Boys debuted in 2019 and has proven a massive success. A second season of The Boys followed in 2020, and Amazon has greenlit both a third season and several spinoffs, including the animated series Diabolical and an X-Men parody focusing on a group called the G-Men. At this time, plot details about The Boys Season 3 are scarce. However, there are reportedly already plans for a fourth season of The Boys.
At this time, The Boys Season 3 does not have a set release date. Production on The Boys Season 3 was delayed as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and filming did not wrap until September of this year.
