Today was an exciting day if you are a fan of the superhero satire The Boys. The cast including Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Laz Alonso, Karen Fukuhara, Chance Crawford, Jessie Usher, Nathan Mitchell, Antony Starr, Colby Minifie, and Executive Producer / Series Showrunner Eric Kripke assembled virtually with host Patton Oswald (who will also be a guest during season two) for a fun-filled Q&A and sneak peek of season two. Fans were asked to submit questions prior to the event and over 22k questions were submitted.
During the streaming event there was also a sneak preview of the new season – you can watch the event in its entirety by clicking here.
At the end of the event the premiere date for season two announced – September 4th, 2020. The second season will be comprised of eight episodes. The release schedule will take a unique approach with the first three episodes dropping on the 4th with subsequent episodes being released each Friday afterward. Creator and executive producer Eric Kripke said, “We wanted to give you time to freak out, digest, discuss, come down from the high, before we give you another dose. We only have your well-being in mind. Hope you love the season as much as we do.”
Here is the synopsis for season two:
The even more intense, more insane season two finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
Recurring stars in season two include Claudia Doumit, Goran Visnijc, Malcolm Barrett, Colby Minifie, Shantel VanSanten, Cameron Crovetti, PJ Byrne, Laila Robbins and Giancarlo Esposito returning as Vought boss Stan Edgar, among others.
