Amazon Prime Video Original Series, The Boys, performed exceptionally well, and the producers cannot be happier. Creators of the show were confident about the success because Season 2 of the series was announced before season 1 was available for streaming. The web-series is based on the comic book of the same name.
What is it about?
The Boys tells us a story about a vigilante group whose aim is to expose a group of Superheroes called Seven. This Superhero team consists of seven members, and all seven of them work for a corrupt multinational corporate company called Vought International.
The company often uses members of seven to cover up their dirty laundry or to draw attention away shady deals they undertake. Furthermore, superheroes are used by politicians for political campaigns.
Season 1 had plenty of twists and turns, which kept the viewers glued to their screens. The showrunners have said that they intend to make it grander. From the trailer, it can be concluded that the new season is going to be bigger, better, and unpredictable.
What is the Plot of season 2 be about?
Season 2 is most likely to pick up from where season 1 finished. A major arc will be Billy Butcher trying to escape Homelander’s garden. The mystery behind Compound 5, a solution that gives humans superpowers, will be explored, and the CEO of Vought International Mr. Edgar, played by Giancarlo Esposito, will have considerable screen time in the second season.
Billy Butcher(Karl Urban), Hughie(Jack Quaid), Muther’s Milk(Laz Alonso), Frenchie(Tomer Kapon), Female(Karen Fukuhara), Starlight(Erin Moriarity), Queen Maeve(Dominic McElligot), Homelander (Anthony Starr), The Deep(Chance Crawford) are all expected to reprise their roles.
Any new additions?
Several new actors and actresses will be part of season 2. These include Patton Oswalt, Aya Cash as Stormfront, Goran Visnjic as Alistair Adana, and Claudia Doumit as an upcoming congresswoman. Billy Butcher will get a dog.
Shooting for season 2 is complete, and the new season may be released sometime in mid-2020. The exact date is unknown.
