Karl Urban who plays the lead character Billy the Butcher in the Amazon Prime series, The Boys recently took to Instagram to tell us that season two has wrapped filming. Not only that, but we can expect it to hit our screens as early as 2020, so we really don’t have that long to wait until
The Boys is based on a series of graphic novels from Preacher creator Garth Ennis. Here’s the official plot…
This is going to hurt! In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone’s got to make sure the “supes” don’t get out of line. And someone will! Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother’s Milk, The Frenchman, and The Female are The Boys: A CIA-backed team of very dangerous people, each one dedicated to the struggle against the most dangerous force on Earth – superpower! Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled. And some of them – sometimes – need to be taken out of the picture. That’s when you call in The Boys!
On its release, The Boys pulled in serious viewing numbers. So, getting a second season was a no-brainer but The Boys is such a huge story. This is just the beginning, the show is going to get so crazy.
Unlike, Preacher, The Boys has no censorship restraints. It is a very violent story and needs to be told in that way. The only way to do this is to release it on a streaming platform that lets you have creative control and stay true to the original source.
Season 1 The Boys is now available to stream on Amazon Prime. Make sure to check it out if you haven’t already.
More information to follow as it’s announced. As always, thanks for reading.
