Ahead of its Season 1 debut, Amazon has shown an early vote of confidence and renewed its upcoming superhero series The Boys for Season 2.
Debuting on the streaming platform July 26, The Boys is based on the comic from Garth Ennis where superheroes have gone corporate and abuse their powers, leading to a group known as “The Boys” to fight back and expose the perceived heroes for who they really are.
In addition to offering a unique take on the role and image of a superhero in contemporary times, The Boys sports a stacked cast featuring Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, and Elisabeth Shue. The cast will only get better in Season 2 when Aya Cash joins the lineup in the role of Stormfront.
The Boys has been on my radar for a while. I haven’t read the comics, but all the footage shown so far looks like the series will be a blast to watch. It’s good to know well in advance the series will continue for Season 2.
