Your favourite superhero satire is officially back for a second season in this fall. On June 27, Amazon announced the premiere date for season two of their hit Original dark comedy, The Boys and also hinted on the plotline.
When is The Boys season 2 out?
The first three episodes of the series will premiere on September 4, Friday. This will be followed by new premieres on subsequent Fridays until culmination of the season on October 9.
Announcing the same, creator and executive producer Eric Kripke says,“We cannot WAIT to show you season two. It’s crazier, stranger, more intense, more emotional.
In fact, it’s too much — so the Surgeon General** has insisted we air the first three episodes on September 4, then air the remaining five episodes weekly after that.
We wanted to give you time to freak out, digest, discuss, come down from the high, before we give you another dose. We only have your well-being in mind. Hope you love the season as much as we do.”
What’s new for season 2?
In a recent online event hosted by season two guest star Patton Oswalt, the cast of the dark satire got together to look back on season one and also drop hints on the sequel.
As the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia, season two will follow our Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes. They will be 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 complete autocracy. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who seems to have an agenda of her own.
The Supes of The Seven will also include Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell).
Other returning stars in season two include Claudia Doumit, Goran Visnijc, Malcolm Barrett, Colby Minifie, Shantel VanSanten, Cameron Crovetti, PJ Byrne, Laila Robbins and Giancarlo Esposito returning as Vought boss Stan Edgar, among others.
The eight-episode Amazon Original series will be available on Prime Video in more than 200 territories around the world, and is produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film.
