Amazon Prime Video has debuted the official teaser trailer for the second season of THE BOYS, the first three episodes of which will premiere on Prime Video on Friday, September 4, 2020.
New episodes will be available each Friday following, culminating in an epic season finale on October 9. The eight-episode Amazon Original series will be available exclusively on Prime Video in more than 200 territories around the world, and is produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises, and Original Film.
The even more intense, more insane season two 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.
The Supes of The Seven also includes Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford), and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell).
Recurring stars in season two include Claudia Doumit (“Timeless”, Anything), Goran Visnijc (“Crossing Lines”, Elektra), Malcolm Barrett (Into The Dark: Pooka Lives!, “Preacher”), Colby Minifie (“Fear the Walking Dead“, Radium Girls), Shantel VanSanten (“Shooter”, “One Tree Hill), Cameron Crovetti (“Big Little Lies”, “Dirty John”), PJ Byrne (Rampage, “The Legend of Korra”), Laila Robbins (“Homeland”, The Blood Oranges) and Giancarlo Esposito (“Breaking Bad”, “The Mandalorian“) returning as Vought boss Stan Edgar, among others.
THE BOYS is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as THE BOYS continue on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven, and Vought – the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes and covers up all of their dirty secrets.
Based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, THE BOYS was developed by showrunner Eric Kripke (“Supernatural”), who also serves as writer and executive producer. Joining Kripke as executive producers are Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen (“Preacher”), Evan Goldberg (“Preacher”), and James Weaver (“Preacher”), Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz (“Prison Break”) and Pavun Shetty (“New Girl”), as well as Phil Sgriccia, Craig Rosenberg, Rebecca Sonnenshine, Ken Levin and Jason Netter. Ennis and Robertson also co-executive produce along with Michael Saltzman.
Prime members can stream THE BOYS exclusively via the Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices, and online. Members can also download it to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership. The series is a global release and available at amazon.com/TheBoys for Prime Video members in more than 200 countries and territories.
