As this new clip so perfectly demonstrates, those who suspected even for a second that The Boys season 2 would ease up on the gas and tone down the violence, grit, and intensity are wrong as wrong can be. The upcoming batch of episodes, which will hit Amazon Prime Video on September 4, will crank everything fans love about the series up to 11. Prepare for more outrageous action, blood-soaked sequences, colorful language, and jaw-dropping twists and turns.
Following the events of season 1, The Boys season 2 finds the titular crew attempting to evade law enforcement. With the Supes – the superheroes of the Seven, the premier superhero team that the conglomerate Vought International oversees — on their tail and their own crew divided at the start of the season, our literal anti-heroes have a tough road ahead. Tensions flare on the Supes’ side as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets out to take over the Seven but is soon threatened when newcomer and social media expert Stormfront (Aya Cash) arrives to join the team. An already fired-up Seven getting even more heated? That doesn’t bode well for anyone — especially not the Boys.
Also in the season 2 mix is a new super-villain threat that shakes up all law and order — which, to no surprise, Vought International jumps on in attempts to capitalize on growing fear and anxiety.
While we don’t expect there to be any more exploding whales on The Boys season 2, the new episodes are certainly going to raise the bar in many different ways. Catch the season premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 4.
