The Boys Season 2 arrives September 4, one month from today. And, based on the final trailer (released today), It’s gonna to be LIT. From Amazon Prime Video:
The even more intense, more insane Season 2 finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
The Boys Season 2 arrives September 4
The Boys crashed onto the streaming scene last summer. This season, its irreverent take on the superhero genre will take the world by a whole-new storm front…. (See what I did there?) Will Season 2 dive deeper into the now even more complex relationship Butcher has with Homelander? Or ill Starlight and Hughie get to be together? One thing’s for sure – The Boys Season 2 is not going to be shy with the language, gore or comedy that made Season 1 so delightfully raunchy.
Look, fans love the mostly feel-good, wholesome nature of the Marvel films. Though not as lucrative or popular, they even enjoy the goofiness of DC cinema. The Boys, however, stands apart when it comes to superheroes. The characters, as fanciful as they are, still manage to feel…. real. The grittiness and dysfunction on display in the show makes it that much easier for viewers to relate. (Sorry, Guardians of the Galaxy & Co.) The Boys Season 2 looks to expand on that exponentially.
The Supes of The Seven all return for The Boys Season 2, including Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell). Giancarlo Esposito is also back as Voight boss Stan Edgar, making a busy fall for the actor. He’ll feature heavily in the Disney+ original series Star Wars: The Mandalorian, too.
Thirty days and counting until The Boys Season 2 arrives on Amazon Prime Video. Are you excited, mate?
