The Boys Season 3 Will See The Deep Fight Back Against the CultOctober 17, 2020
When asked whether the group originated from the comics or something wholly new, Kripke said, “We came up with it. It’s a combination of a couple different Hollywood fringe religions or cults.”
“There’s a little bit of NXIVM in there. Everyone says, ‘Oh, that’s Scientology.’ It’s actually a smoothie of a bunch of different ones,” he said. “It mostly came about because we love writing for The Deep.”Kripke likened The Deep to “the Forrest Gump of Hollywood trends” in that he always seems to be caught up in something newsworthy. “In Season 1, he was embroiled in a #MeToo moment. And in Season 2, we’re like, ‘All right — he should be like Allison Mack and go join a cult,'” said Kripke.
“And then in season three he’s gonna be like Leah Remini in fighting back against the cult,” Kripke added, referencing Remini’s series depicting her fight against Scientology. “He’s just going to keep blowing through these different Hollywood points. The idea of him trying to self-realize when he’s just such an idiot was entertaining to us.”The Boys Season 3 will officially start filming in 2021, and will introduce us to Soldier Boy who is played by Supernatural star Jensen Ackles.
