The first season of the popular Amazon Prime Video series The Boys had ended on a perfect cliffhanger. Finally, the official teaser trailer for the much-awaited second season is out. Interestingly, all the eight episodes of the season will not be released at the same time. The first three episodes of which will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, September 4, 2020. Subsequently, a new episode will be made available on each following Friday with the season finale taking place on October 9. The second season of the series, produced by Amazon Studios in collaboration with Sony Pictures Television Studios, Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises, and Original Film, will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 territories around the world.
For the uninitiated, The Boys presents an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven”, and their formidable Vought backing.
The Stakes get higher in the second season
Speaking of the new season, the stakes this time will be higher than ever. The Boys are 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 supporting cast
The Supes of The Seven also include Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell). Recurring stars in season two include Claudia Doumit, Goran Visnijc, Malcolm Barrett, Colby Minifie, Shantel Van Santen, Cameron Crovetti, PJ Byrne, Laila Robbins and Giancarlo Esposito returning as Vought boss Stan Edgar, among others.
