Let’s be honest, we are all a little broken-hearted that “Supernatural” is ending. While we’ve known for a while that Jared Padalecki had found his next role on the reboot of “Walker, Texas Ranger,” fans have been wondering what is next for Jensen Ackles. Well, we’ve just learned where we can see him next.

Ackles is joining the super series “The Boys” for its third season. As for the role, Ackles has been cast in the pivotal role of Soldier Boy. The actor teased the announcement on Instagram. Amazon Prime confirmed the news.

In the comics, after Super Boy fought in World War II, he became the first celebrity superhero. But in reality, Super Boy is the more cowardly version of Captain America. Throughout the comics both Billy Butcher and Homelander use him for their own gains.

Erik Kripke, who created “Supernatural” and serves as showrunner for “The Boys” made the following statement:

When I was a kid, I had a crazy, impossible dream – to provide Jensen Ackles with gainful employment. I’m happy to say that dream has come true. Jensen is an amazing actor, an even better person, smells like warm chocolate chip cookies, and I consider him a brother. As Soldier Boy, the very first Superhero, he’ll bring so much humor, pathos, and danger to the role. I can’t wait to be on set with him again, and bring a bit of Supernatural to The Boys.”

But wait, there’s more! Ackles may not be the only “Supernatural” star to be joining “The Boys” in season three. Word is, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Ackles’ father, John Winchester on “SPN,” is also in talks to join the cast!

Season two of the Amazon Original series “The Boys,” premieres on Friday, September 4, 2020.
