The Boys season 2 is nearly upon us and with that, there’s a new trailer to keep up wanting more and more and more.

I enjoyed the first season of The Boys. I think it went too far trying to be edgy, to the point where most of the gore was pointless and there’s entirely naked people on the screen just… because, but yeah, it was mostly good.

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.

Nope.

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.

What is The Boys season 2 about?

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.

When will the new season be released?

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.”
