One of the most successful Amazon Prime Originals, The Boys is based on Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson’s (Transmetropolitan) action and comedy book series. The first season was a super hit among the fans. And now, the next season is up in line.
Amazon has confirmed new episodes of the season, but it is yet to announce the official release date. Karl Urban, (who plays anti-super vigilante Billy the Butcher), revealed on his Instagram that filming has wrapped on season two and that the new episodes will most likely hit screens in mid-2020.
The series first aired on 26th July 2019.
The official twitter handle of the show shared an image of the characters including Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid’s Hughie Campbell, and The Seven on May 27. We swear they definitely are in high spirits.
Most of the cast are reprising their roles in Season 2. Jack Quaid as Hughie, Karl Urban as Billy the Butcher, Starr and Moriarty, Chace Crawford as The Deep, Jessie T. Usher as A-Train, Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Capon as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as The Female and Nathan Mitchell as Black Noir.
The You’re the Worst star Aya Cash will join Season 2 with a new character called Stormfront. According to the comics, this character was originally a man, compared to Marvel’s Thor before.
Cash told Entertainment Weekly, “She’s the grenade that gets thrown into Homelander’s world and the world of the Seven.” “She really causes so many problems.”
Other new additions Patton Oswalt (Agents of SHIELD) in a top-secret role, Goran Visnjic (Santa Clarita Diet) as a charismatic church leader, and Claudia Doumit (Timeless) as a young congresswoman.
The Boys explores how superheroes and civilians could co-exist in a society. It has a different take though, with the heroes corrupted with power and the civilians forming a group called “the Boys” to keep the “Supes” in check. Vought International is the corporation that works endlessly to maintain the image of its Supe team called The Seven.
Season 1 left off with Billy finding out that his wife who he believed had died, was still alive. She is revealed in the finale to have been raising Homelander’s baby. Season 2 will continue from where it left. However, not much can be confirmed as of now.
Back in December 2019, the first teaser for Season 2 was launched. You can watch the trailer here.
As you can see and predict, there is a lot of things in store. Stay tuned to know more updates!
