I’m not a prude, I want to make that perfectly clear; I’m just not a huge fan of how every TV show since Game of Thrones has learned that they’re allowed to be a bit naughty and now they’re all dialling it up to eleven. I was rather hoping The Boys season 2 would be different.
That’s not to say this is a bad thing. I know I’m in the minority here and there’s a reason why overtly sexually-charged and gruesome shows and films perform well, but wow this trailer is a lot to take in.
Have a watch…
Looks good. Homelander appears to be teaching his son how to be a bastard and my god there’s a lot of blood. Lots and lots of blood.
We don’t know yet. By all accounts it should just pick up from where season one left off, with Billy Butcher learning that his wife wasn’t killed by – or as a result of – Homelander, but rather had a child with him and started a new life elsewhere.
Previously producer Seth Rogan spoke about the upcoming season and what we can expect, saying:
“They already have more resources for the second season. They’re adding more characters, the scope of the show organically grows as the show continues. We just watched, actually, the first episode of the second season this week. It was a wonderful thing as producers. This is way better than I ever could’ve hoped it would be.
“With a show like The Boys, especially, where the tone is so unique, for the actors to be able to watch the show and to see like, ‘Oh, that’s what it is.’ It allows them to come back completely locked into it.“
Annoyingly we don’t know. Definitely in 2020 though, with Karl Urban, who plays Billy Butcher and gets better looking with every passing day, posting on Instagram after filming wrapped:
“The Boys 2 – On yer telle mid 2020 #gonefishing.”
We’ll keep you updated when we learn more.
