'The Boys' Returns September 4th To Amazon Prime Video

Recommended Posts

Amazon Prime Video today announced that the hit superhero satire The Boys will premiere the first three episodes of its second season Friday, September 4, 2020. New episodes will be available each Friday culminating in an epic season finale on October 9. The news comes on the heels of the cast coming together for a virtual event, hosted by season two guest star Patton Oswalt, that looked back on season one and also dropped hints for the upcoming season. The eight-episode Amazon Original series will be available 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.

Today's streaming event also contained a sneak preview of the new season, with the cast and executive producer Eric Kripke revealing the opening moments of season two.

Creator and executive producer Eric Kripke says, "We cannot WAIT to show you season two. It's crazier, stranger, more intense, more emotional. In fact, it's too much - so the Surgeon General** has insisted we air the first three episodes on September 4, then air the remaining five episodes weekly after that. We wanted to give you time to freak out, digest, discuss, come down from the high, before we give you another dose. We only have your well-being in mind. Hope you love the season as much as we do.

**No, he didn't."

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 include 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, Goran Visnijc, Malcolm Barrett, Colby Minifie, Shantel VanSanten, Cameron Crovetti, PJ Byrne, Laila Robbins and Giancarlo Esposito returning as Vought boss Stan Edgar, among others.

ABOUT THE BOYS:

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.

Not bad 1st Season.....Will watch the 2nd..

For some reason....I think.... The Tick (amazon)...

when I think of  "The Boys"..

Which is apparently why Amazon cancelled The Tick, sadly.  They didn't seem to think there was room for two shows satirizing the superhero genre.

More likely The Tick just wasn't the show Prime wanted anymore. I know around the time of the cancellation Prime had decided to make a move away from original comedy and children's programming and toward darker, more adult fare. Sadly, bare boobs and "F" bombs carry more weight than fart jokes and Thunderbirds.

The Tick was pretty dark, just not as dark as The Boys.  It also had the occasional "F-bomb" and some pretty over-the-top violence, but no bare breasts.  It was also much sillier in its approach.  Whatever.

REALLY? Granted, I only saw a couple episodes, but it looked pretty tame to me. Live and learn I guess.

I don't think it was ever gratuitous, but that stuff was there.  I think Edlund had a pretty good idea of how and when to use that kind of thing for the effect he wanted.

Well that's the difference isn't it? You have people who know how to write for these type shows and you get that subtlety. Edlund was and is a master of that type thing.
