Amazon Prime’s superhero-skewering collection, The Boys, is nearly again after a teaser trailer hinted on the season’s new dynamics and a first-look clip advised that the gore-factor of this present was nonetheless excessive. Government producer Seth Rogen beforehand promised that the present could be even extra outrageous for a sophomore season, and this new trailer reveals that showrunner Eric Kripke appears to be like to have stored that normal intact.
At the start, it positive appears to be like like Homelander isn’t having a simple time this season, which was to be anticipated after he left himself rootless by lasering his lover-mother determine, Madelyn Stillwell, to demise. A substitute Supe for Translucent, Stormfront (Aya Money), is difficult The Seven’s establishment, and Homelander isn’t thrilled with anybody apart from himself taking cost. We additionally see him toss a toddler off a roof, so let’s simply say that he’s not coping nicely with something, and Butcher’s justifiable rage (and really private axe to grind) gained’t assist issues.
Within the meantime, The Boys are actually fugitives of the federal authorities after Butcher was framed for Stillwell’s demise, so there can be all kinds of chase-related mayhem on show. The water-bound scene appears to be like (and sounds) insane (and disgusting), however hey, it appears to be like like Chace Crawford’s The Deep is again within the recreation. Perhaps? Hopefully, he’s realized a number of issues. And there’s a supervillain menace afoot as nicely, so count on this season to be a jam-packed one.
Amazon’s The Boys returns (weekly!) on September 4. The present’s already been renewed for a 3rd season, and as of the second-season premiere, Aisha Tyler will host aftershow episodes. Right here’s some new Homelander-and-Butcher-focused key posters.
