After its huge success and tremendous popularity, Amazon was quick to renew The Boys for a second season. As per official sources, the filming for season 2 has officially wrapped up. However, the show is currently in the production phase. There has been NO announcement regarding the release date of season 2. Seeing that Season 1 came out in July 2019, the second season can release in July 2020. But in the wake of the chaos caused by the pandemic, it can be delayed to the end of 2020.
What To Expect From The New Season?
You wake up one day and find out Superman has killed millions of innocent civilians. Or The Avengers have laid waste to every last piece of civilization. As spooky as this sounds, The Boys is based upon this very concept. The show sees a group of vigilantes on a journey to punish every superhero who has abused his/her power and abilities.
Season 2 is likely to pick up after the events of season 1. Only this time, the new season will have new and more powerful villains. Billy is finally coming to terms with the life that surrounds him. Throughout season 1, Billy sought revenge against Himelander, who had allegedly raped and killed Billy’s wife, Becca. Season 1 ended on a major cliffhanger. The final scene revealed that Becca is alive and is raising the hero’s son in secret.
After the first season, The Seven and Vought International are completely dismantled. Creator Eric Kripke has promised that the show will follow the comic’s famous Herogasm storyline.
