The Boys was one of 2019’s best news show–a subversive, funny take on the superhero genre that delivered drama, dark satirical humor, and bone-crunching violence in equal measure. The second season is almost here, and the final trailer has been released.The latest trailer puts the focus on main character Billy Butcher, as well as introducing us to Stormfront, one of the show’s new superheroes. Butcher and his team of superhero-hating mercenaries are in hiding, but he is making plans to fight back and rescue his wife. Stormfront is a powerful new supe, who knows how to use the media and is making big plans for the world’s superheroes, putting her at odds with Homelander. Oh, and there’s a giant exploding fish in there too. Check it out below:The Boys stars Karl Urban as Butcher, Aya Cash as Stormfront, and Antony Starr as Homelander, and the cast also includes Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara. It’s based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and the first three episodes hit Amazon Video on September 4. The remaining five will then be released weekly.In a recent interview with GQ, Urban spoke about playing Butcher and hinted at what to expect from him in Season 2. “Butcher is a fun character to play, because of the degree of internal conflict that wages within him,” he said. “There is a war inside of Butcher, and to get to the dawn, you must first travel through the night. Butcher has both the tendency to be the villain and the hero, which makes him a hell of a lot of fun to play. Looking at season two, some of the shit that Butcher gets up to is truly diabolical. And I pray that I personally don’t get the karma payback for what he does. I didn’t think of it, I didn’t write it, but I’m definitely guilty of doing it.”For more, check out GameSpot’s guide to the biggest upcoming TV shows of 2020 and beyond.
