Due to the monster success of its first season, Amazon wasted no time getting to work on The Boys season 2 which is scheduled for release on September 4th of this year. Unlike the first season, however, it seems we won’t be receiving every episode at once.
The first three episodes will drop come September 4th, but the subsequent five episodes will be fed to the masses – i.e. folks like you and me – on a weekly basis thereafter. Why? Who knows. But given what we know, this would effectively mean season 2 finishes up sometime around October 9th.
Based on the rapid-fire onslaught of footage devoid of context in the trailer below – uploaded late last year – The Boys season 2 will include:
- more dismemberments
- more intense gore
- our favourite diamond-in-the-rough vigilantes mobilising for a larger scale assault
- Homelander continuing to work through his oddly sexual mother issues while juggling his newfound responsibilities as a father (very Freudian)
- and even a glimpse of Homelander facing off with Starlight in an elevator
Additionally, new footage has teased the arrival of a new hero joining The Seven. Replacing the since deceased Translucent will be a chaotic and outwardly brash Stormfront – who promises to work on every last one of Homelander’s psychopathic nerves. Should be fun…
The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Anony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, and now Aya Cash. Check out the videos above.
