From Season 3 villain may have already been revealed

With From Season 3 set to drop later this year, some fans think the new villain has been hiding in plain sight this entire time.

From Season 3 is one of the most anticipated TV shows of 2024, leaving fans on a disturbing cliffhanger as Tabitha (Catalina Sandino Moreno) has somehow escaped to the outside world.

The From cast is set to face new evil forces in the third chapter — but fans think the main antagonist for the new episodes was already revealed back in Season 2.

During the Season 2 episode ‘The Kindness of Strangers,’ Fatima (Pegah Ghafoori) confronts a pair of the smiling monsters while she and the new busload of Fromville residents hide out in the diner, one of which is the Cowboy Creature.

While he’s been a regular threat up until this point, the cicadas and the music box took over as Season 2 went on. However, the From Season 3 teaser teaser shows Boyd (Harold Perrineau) being kidnapped by the original monsters, including Cowboy Creature, meaning we could be seeing a different side to the antagonist in the third chapter.

“It’s in Season 2 when the people from the bus are just finding out about the monsters. He’s one of the monsters but while watching it I realized he looks similar to the dude that’s talking in the teaser for Season 3,” they pointed out.

A second agreed, “I recognized him immediately. The trailer seems to show a group of monsters tying Boyd up.” A third weighed in, “It’s literally him and he has the same cowboy outfit, good catch.”

“Yeah I also noticed that on the teaser, that’s definitely the same dude,” another theory stated. “Season 1/2 the ‘monsters’ seem to be just mindless creatures that want to eat humans (with glimpses of intelligence or self-awareness, like Smiley on the bus scene, or the chick that played the other dude).

“My hope is that in Season 3 we see a different side of the monsters, after all, scheming to get someone trapped appears to be a different M.O.”

Towards the end of the Season 3 teaser trailer, Boyd is tied up while trying to comfort a woman off-screen. “You’re so strong,” Boyd cries, unable to get up and help her. As her screaming intensifies, he repeats, “I know, I know, I know.”

Previous theories have claimed that the woman screaming in the teaser is Fatima, potentially explaining Boyd’s intense reaction, but now attention is back on the villain in question.

A fourth fan wondered, “This dude looked like the dude from the Season 3 teaser, now I wonder if maybe they are going to lock Boyd up in the same place where the old dude was locked up till he died.”

Unearth more secrets with how many seasons of From there will be and the mystery of the From talismans.
