Amazon has dropped a teaser trailer for season 2 of one of the most popular shows from 2019, The Boys. Watch the teaser below of Amazon’s original superhero hit. What happens after that explosive season one finale? Get your first taste below!
The first season took the superhero world by storm with a unique and gory spin on the genre last summer. The second season is on its way sometime next year, and from the teaser, it looks to promise more of the insanity that made us fall in love with the show during the first season.
The Boys, now streaming through Prime, is based on the best-selling comics by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson and gives us a bold, fresh and bloody new spin on the superhero genre, centered on a group of vigilantes who set out to take down corrupt superheroes. In this world, these aren’t your goody-two-shoes Marvel heroes and they are bigger pricks than any DCEU character. Watching Homelander, just makes you understand why Batman has a contingency plan. Just sayin.
The Boys are Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, “Star Trek”), Hughie (Jack Quaid, “The Hunger Games”), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso, “Detroit”), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, “Hostages”), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, “Suicide Squad”). Simon Pegg (“Mission: Impossible – Fallout”) guest stars as Hughie’s father.
The Justice League/Avengers squad of the show is called The Seven and are led by Homelander (Antony Starr, “Banshee”) who is joined by Starlight (Erin Moriarty, “Captain Fantastic”), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott, “House of Cards”), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher, “Independence Day: Resurgence”), The Deep (Chace Crawford, “Gossip Girl”) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell, “Supernatural”).
