'The Boys' Season 3 Episode 6: Will The Legend return in Season 4? Paul Reiser is okay if show wants him
'I’m only going to come back if they ask me. I will not come up against their will,' the 'Mad About You' star said
Paul Reiser's The Legend was one of the comic characters introduced in 'The Boys' Season 3. Played by 'Stranger Things' star 'Paul Reiser', his persona in the series is much like the comics, The Legend is shown to be an absolute player and talks to everyone except Butcher.
Fandom describes The Legend, as "It's known that Old Legend runs a comic book store in The Boys universe. he also knew nearly everything about almost every supe in The Boys Universe. He refuses to talk to anyone but butcher, and he is still horny despite his old age." The Amazon Prime series charts this out accurately as Reiser's version surely knows everything about every supe there is. It's almost as if he were a living supe encyclopedia. Season 3 fixes one of the biggest mistakes from the previous season — bringing in the Legend.
That said, Season 6 doesn't feature another appearance from the character. While there are still two episodes left, there is a possibility of seeing him again, but the more important question is if Reiser would reprise his role in Season 4 which has already been greenlit by Amazon Prime Video. Talking to Collider, the 'Mad About You' star was keen to come back to the show only if he was not forcefully fit into the storyline.
“I’m only going to come back if they ask me. I will not come up against their will," he opined. "No, it was great fun. I loved the crew and I loved the cast and Eric was great, he’s really creative, his writing staff is great. Especially now that we have a little bit of a running jump, we know what was fun about the character and this incarnation, I’d be thrilled if they wrote some more stuff. I’d go up to Canada. Especially if I don’t have to spend two extra weeks [in quarantine] for nothing. Nothing bad about Canada, I just have things to do." Reiser was most recently seen in Netflix's 'Stranger Things' Season 3 reprising his role as Dr Sam Owens. He shot to fame with NBC's hit Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning sitcom 'Mad About You'.
'The Boys' Season 3 Episode 6 is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
