Between The Seven, their corporate overlords at Vought, and a few new supes making their series debut, it seems as though Billy Butcher and his team will already have plenty to deal with when The Boys returns to Amazon Prime for its third season. Regardless, the producers are adding another threat to the mix, and it’s one that fans of the comic should recognize. According to Deadline, Katia Winter has joined the show’s cast as Little Nina.
Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson introduced Little Nina fairly early on in their original series. Named for her diminutive stature, Nina was a Russian mob boss who entered into a business arrangement with Vought in order to take over her country. But unbeknownst to her, Vought had other plans. Nina famously had an affinity for sex toys, and rarely went anywhere without her favorite vibrator (see above). It’s also worth mentioning that (*spoiler alert*) she had one of the most grisly deaths in The Boys’ entire 72-issue run. However, given the TV show’s tendency to deviate from its source material, it’s not clear if we’ll get to see this play out onscreen.
Winter currently appears on Blood & Treasure, which premiered on CBS in 2019. Previously, she starred on Sleepy Hollow and also had recurring roles on The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow and Showtime’s Dexter. Some of Winter’s film credits include The Catch, Knight of Cups, and Negative.
Amazon hasn’t announced an air date for The Boys season 3. However, the new episodes are expected to premiere either later this year or early next year.
