“The Boys” has officially announced the released date for its upcoming season, The Boys Season 2 and the fans cannot wait to see their favorite supes on-the screen again. The first season was an adaptation from the popular comic, Garth Ennis, which saw the team-up of nobodies. They set out on a mission to conquer The Seven, a corporate-owned as well as a group of corrupt superheroes. We have all loved season one and had been eagerly waiting for the next season, and it is here.
On June 26, 2020, Eric Kripke, the creator, did not merely the release date of the Boys Season 2 but also shared that the people will be getting only three episodes on the launch date.
Amazon announced the happening of Boys season 2 before it debuted on the platform. It seemed like a well-planned move as well. It is one of the most popular shows on Amazon Prime. The Announcement of the Release Date for the Boys season 2.
The second season of the Boys is all set to stream on Amazon Prime on September 4, 2020. The creators revealed on June 26 in a Livestream conducted by Patton Oswalt. Moreover, the creator announced that instead of releasing all the episodes at once, only three episode quill be aired on the September 4, and the rest of the episodes will be aired each week. This will provide enough time for the audience to absorb the content and recover from each episode. This implies that the season will be going live on October 9, 2020.
Initially, this announcement was planned to be made on the PaleyFest TV festival in March; however, it was canceled due to the global pandemic.
In the announcement video, the entire cast came together to share the news of the Boys season 2. In the trailer video, we can see that the gore is still there with all his mighty charm. This is something that the audience was expecting this. Moreover, three minutes into the trailer video, you can be Block Noir has already beaded one, slits troats, and rips open a face. This season we will see more of Giancarlo Esposito, the Vought CEO.
He only had a cameo role in season one, but we hope there is more to this character in the upcoming season. The trailer of Boys season 2 was released back in December 2019 but did not reveal anything about the plot. But it was evident that there will be tons of violence. In July 2020, the creators thankfully released a new trailer, which revealed a lot more than the previous one.
As per the second trailer, the Boys season 2 will start from where season one ended, i.e., with evil Superman stand-in Homelander reveling his son and Hughie saving speedster A-Train’s life.
There is also a quick shot of Terror, who is Billy Butcher’s dog. He is undoubtedly one of the existing parts of the cast, owing to his special talent.
New Season, New Story and New Twists
By seeing the trailer and other clips of the Boys season 2, we have a good idea about the final cast member. Below are the cast members of Boys season 2 that we are sure will return –
- Hughie Campbell: Jack Quaid
- Billy Butcher: Karl Urban
- Annie January: Erin Moriarty
- Homelander: Antony Starr
- Jessie T. Usher: A-Train
- Chace Crawford: The Deep
- Laz Alonso: Mother’s Milk
- Nathan Mitchell: Black Noir
- Karen Fukuhara: The Female
- Colby Minifie: Ashley Barrett
- Giancarlo Esposito: Mr. Edgar
- Tomer Kapon: Frenchie
- Aya Cash: Stormfront
- Dominique McElligott: Queen Maeve
- Giancarlo Esposito: Mr Edgar
Giancarlo Esposito appeared in the season one finale, as Vought CEO, Mr. Edgar. With Shue played by Madelyn Stillwell played killed in the finale, we can expect Mr. Edgar to play a bigger role in the coming season.
Coming to the new faces, we can see Patt Oswalt is joining the Stormfront together two other debutants Claudia Doumit, and Groan Visnjic. However, it is yet to be confirmed officially. According to a report by Deadline, VIsnijic is roped in to play Alistair Adana, who is the cultist leader if a gloomy church and Doumit will play a popular congresswoman. However, we will not be seeing Hugh Campbell Snr. in this season.
Then there is Stormfront, who, according to Cash, will be similar to a hand grenade thrown to the Seven. She might be there to blow up Vought. She is persuading Vought to get back to the main idea behind making the superheroes, and she has a strong feminist quality to her. Instead of misdirected, Stormfront is an empowered woman and has enough power to conquer The Seven.
Another interesting part is the return of “invisible c**t, who is the green guy and looking similar to Translucent (by Alex Hassell). But wasn’t he killed by Frenchie by an ass bomb? So how is returning in the new season will be interesting to see.
Though it is yet to be confirmed, Jeffrey Dean Morgan might also be in the cast of the Boy season 2. But it is confirmed that Black Noir is all geared up to play a major role. He will be like a shadow of season 2 and will have no dialogues and action scenes. Audiences will never get to see his face.
The Boys was definitely one of the surprising series of the year. It came with a strong group of superheroes, and the audiences instantly connected with them. The second season will be taking off from where the first season left us. Ever since the end of season one, fans tried to build up their own stories of what could happen. But now there is no need to speculate because September will bring what we have been looking forward to. The trailer looks amazing, the cast looks stronger than ever, and the fans are more eager than ever. Hopefully, the little ambiguity left with regards to the cast will be cleared by the creator before the show airs.
