AMAZON PRIME VIDEO: ‘The Boys‘ are back, and they appear to be as bad as ever in this action-packed trailer. But I would have liked to see a few more story elements revealed. Because while I do enjoy seeing that the very adult and bloody ZAP-POW-BAM elements are back, I also liked the world they created in Season one, and hope they continue that level of character-driven storytelling as well… Here’s the official word on season 2, dropping September 4th… & the trailer is below.
“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.”
