The Boys: Season 2 has launch date on Amazon Prime Video


    It gets even bloodier, more blatant, even crazier: The Amazon Original series The Boys starts the second season in over 200 countries and territories worldwide. The first three episodes will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video from September 4th in the original English version and the German dubbed version. Prime members can look forward to a new episode every Friday. The epic season finale follows on October 9th. The eight episodes of the Amazon Original series are produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios in collaboration with Point Gray Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film.
    "The boys" start in absolute chaos in the wacky second season: They are fleeing the law, are being hunted by the superheroes – called Supes – and are desperately trying to regroup to fight against Vought. Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) are in hiding and trying to get used to their new life, Butcher (Karl Urban) has disappeared. Starlight (Erin Moriarty) has to find its place in "The Seven", while Homelander (Antony Starr) aims to take complete control. However, his position of power is threatened by the inclusion of a new superhero: Stormfront (Aya Cash) knows social media and is pursuing a very own agenda. As if that weren't enough, a new threat appears on the scene with a group of super villains and makes waves. Vought meanwhile tries to make the best possible capital out of the nation's paranoia.
    In addition to Homelander, the superheroes of "The Seven" also include Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell). Recurring roles in season 2 include Claudia Doumit, Goran Visnjic, Malcolm Barrett, Colby Minifie, Shantel VanSanten, Cameron Crovetti, P.J. Byrne, Laila Robins and Giancarlo Esposito, who returns to the cast as Stan Edgar, Vought boss.
    About The Boys: As popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and revered as gods – The Boys shows in a humorous, sometimes disrespectful way, what happens when superheroes abuse their superpowers instead of using them for the good. "The Boys" are on the heroic path to uncover the truth about "The Seven" and Vought, the multi-billion dollar corporation that manages the superheroes and hides all their dirty secrets. The normal mortals without superpowers vs. the superpowers of the hero universe.
    The Amazon Original series is based on the New York Times bestseller comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson and was developed by show runner Eric Kripke (Supernatural), who also acts as an author and executive producer. In addition to Kripke, Seth Rogen (Preacher), Evan Goldberg (Preacher) and James Weaver (Preacher) from Point Gray Pictures, Neal H. Moritz (Prison Break) and Pavun Shetty (New Girl) from Original Film as well as Phil Sgriccia, Craig Rosenberg, Rebecca Sonnenshine, Ken Levin and Jason Netter are other executive producers from The Boys. Ennis and Robertson are co-executive producers with Michael Saltzman.
