The Boys Season 2 has been in production since before Season 1 premiered on Amazon in July 2019, but in the age of Coronavirus, no TV show seems safe from delays and cancellations. Thankfully, that’s not the case with The Boys, which not only wrapped production before this pandemic took hold but might even get an accelerated released date as a result.
The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke tweeted about the series over the weekend, encouraging people to check out the first season before teasing the show’s return for Season 2:
THE BOYS SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE??
It is quite relieving to know for all the fans. The Boys wrapped its shooting this January. So, there won’t be foreseeable delays in the set release date of the show. The Boys season 2 will release on Amazon Prime on July 26, 2020. Fans can stay assured they will get their fix of superhero drama in July.
IS THEIR A TRAILER ON THE BIG SCREEN FOR SEASON 2?
The new season will continue with the superhero power struggles and the boys trying to fight against the system. It will be exciting to see how Billy deals with his wife being alive and has a superhero baby. The season two trailer is out. But, it does not give much of the plot details.
WHO’S IN THE CAST OF S2?
Patton Oswalt is joining Season 2 as well in an unrevealed role. However, he may be playing The Legend, a character in the comics who knows the corrupt superheroes’ secrets. Other new cast members include Goran Visnjic as Alistair Adana, “the charismatic and shadowy leader of a mysterious church,” and Claudia Doumit as Victoria Neumann, “a young wunderkind congresswoman,” according to a Deadline report.
The Boys Season 2 will also introduce several new characters from the comics. The biggest addition could be Stormfront, a white supremacist who was a member of the Hitler Youth with superpowers modeled after DC’s Shazam. Amazon’s adaptation gives the character one new twist, turning this male supervillain into a woman played by Aya Cash (You’re the Worst).
