The Boys are definitely back!
We always thought about superheroes as the saviours of our Mother Earth. It feels so good when they use their powers to stop the crimes and defeat their foes. But imagine a corrupted superhero abusing his abilities. It’s almost impossible to imagine, isn’t it?
The first season of The Boys broke all records when it managed to attract more than 8 million viewers in its first 10 days of release. It was hailed as one of the most successful television series on Amazon Prime Video. It came as no surprise that Amazon decided to renew this series for the second time.
Based on the comic book series of the same name, The Boys was developed for television by Supernatural series creator, Eric Kripke. Many big names including Seth Rogen are also serving as executive producers. What is going to happen in season 2? Check out below to know more about the upcoming season!
The Boys Season 2 Plot: What to expect?
Fans witnessed Homelander dropping Billy Butcher on the lawn of his wife, Becca. He believed that his wife was raped and murdered by Homelander. But his wife was secretly living with Homelander’s super-powered son. We know it sounds pretty harsh for Billy. How will he deal with this screwed up situation? We can definitely expect to see Billy’s world turning into chaos. Many unpredictable stories are definitely are on their way to entertain the audience.
Black Noir’s role in the upcoming season will be much bigger in comparison to what we got in the first entry. Hughie, Frenchie, The Female, and Mother’s Milk are on FBI’s most-wanted list. Seth Rogen is also expected to make a notable cameo in the second instalment.
Kripke stated in an interview with EW:
“In season 2, we’re filming a movie within a [show] called Dawn of the Seven. We’re all talking about wouldn’t it be great if Seth was one of the main characters of that movie [if] he was like the Agent Coulson of the group? If his schedule is clear, we’ll do that.”
Our own Hughie aka Jack Quaid, spoke to ComicBook.com about some plot details of the second season:
“It’s just absolutely bonkers. I’ll just put it this way, the scale is a lot bigger. I think we’ve topped season one, in terms of insane moments that make you say ‘What the hell?’ I’ve done things this season that are definite firsts for me in my career, and I probably won’t do them again since.”
