The Boys season 2 is nearly here as Amazon has announced that it’s coming our way in September.
Not too long ago, I mentioned in an article about The Umbrella Academy that the Netflix show seemed good until The Boys was released on Amazon and beat it in almost every regard. Some time later, I still stand by that.
I’m a man of my word. You can’t take that away from me. Because of that, it’s sort of good news for me that The Boys season 2 is upon us, with Amazon kindly telling everyone that they’ll be able to stream it from the 4th of September.
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.
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“.
Something to look forward to then.
