That's one super beard.

On Tuesday, May 11, Jensen Ackles took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of The Boys season three. While Jensen didn't tease any specifics about the new season, the recent upload had us doing a double take.

Why? Well, because the Supernatural alum was sporting a very bushy beard and a shaggy haircut. This may not necessarily be a shock to his devoted 8.5 million followers on Instagram, who followed the beard growth online. But for the rest of us, who think of Jensen as the often clean cut Dean Winchester, it was quite the surprise.

Alongside the on-set update, Jensen wrote, "Just another day at the 'NEW' office. Happy taco Tuesday, folks. @theboystv #SoldierBoy."

As E! News readers well know, back in August 2020, it was announced that Jensen would be joining The Boys cast for season three. Jensen confirmed the news by uploading a video of himself catching The Boys comic book, which inspired the series, and looking it over. At the end, a title card flashed, "The Boys season 3."

He also captioned the video, "I keep wondering what I'll do....when @cw_supernatural finally ends this year. Then it hit me."

The 43-year-old actor will play Soldier Boy on the Amazon Prime Video series, who, according to Variety, is the original superhero. We doubt Seven leader Homelander (Antony Starr) will be a fan of his.

In addition to Jensen and Antony, The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Karen Fukuhara, Tomer Capon and more.

Season three is currently in production.

The Boys is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
