Amazon Prime Video’s popular superhero television series The Boys is back, with these “morally flexible” superheroes making a return to the small screen on 4th September. As announced in a live-stream on the show’s YouTube channel, the first three episodes will be available on-demand on this date, while after this the next five will arrive weekly on Fridays, leading up to 9th October.
The show promises to be a little bit different this time around. It will introduce a new female superhero from Seattle called Stormfront to the fray. Fans got a hint of this new character joining the dysfunctional seven from a teaser video advertising the second season on Amazon Prime Video.
Amazon Prime Video describes this season by depicting the action that follows on from the first series.
“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 centre stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.”
There are rumours of other new characters being introduced in the second season, with hints that Jeffrey Dean Morgan could potentially have a role. Series creator Eric Kripke tweeted:
More trailers are likely to arrive, as well as an increase in marketing nearer the time to the show’s release, and if you enjoyed the explicit havoc and mayhem of the first series, we think the second will be something not to be missed. The live-stream also revealed this official poster for season two:
