In the new full trailer of The Boys, posted by Amazon on August 4, we see The Boys vigilante group, led by Karl Urban, striking back against the superheroes known as The Seven, who are abusing their powers.

The first three episodes of the season will drop on Amazon Prime Video on September 4, 2020, followed by new episodes each Friday following, until October 9, 2020.

The season description reads, "In a more intense, more desperate Season 2 of THE BOYS, Butcher, Hughie and the team reel from their losses in Season 1". Watch the official trailer below! Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. But he faces a threat to his power with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash) a new Supe who is described as "social media-savvy" and who has "an agenda of her own".

There are multiple strains of the novel coronavirus; the original D614 strain was found in Wuhan, China, in December. The city imposed a lockdown last week, closing entertainment venues and banning movement in and out of the city.

It's brilliant, it's violent, it takes the mickey out of the whole superhero genre. It's the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys continue on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven, and Vought - the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes and covers up all of their dirty secrets. The second season will also have recurring stars Claudia Doumit, Goran Visnijc, Malcolm Barrett, Colby Minifie, Shantel VanSanten, Cameron Crovetti, PJ Byrne, Laila Robbins, as well as the return of Giancarlo Esposito as Vought boss Stan Edgar, as well as the debut of Aya Cash as the new superhero Stormfront. It's based on the extremely dark comic by Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson, which ran for 72 issues from 2008 to 2012.

After the events of the Season 1 finale, it looks like Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and his associates Yumiko (Karen Fukuhara), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso), "Wee" Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), and Frenchie (Tomer Kapon) are going to find themselves on the run from not just Homelander (Antony Starr) and The Seven, but every other "supe" and law enforcement agency in the country.

The series is produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film.
