In case you are anxious about whether or not Season 2 would be the final you see of Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys, there’s some excellent news coming your approach. The streaming service introduced at [email protected] that the present has already been renewed! That’s proper, Season 3 is within the works, earlier than Season 2 even begins streaming. What’s extra, work on it has already begun.
“Amazon, in a bold and historic push to expand their ‘weirdo’ demographic, has greenlit Season 3 of The Boys! The writers and I are hard at work in the (virtual) writer’s room and we’re sad to say, the world has given us way too much material,” showrunner Eric Kriokke stated in a press launch. “We hope to be shooting in early 2021, but that’s up to a microscopic virus.”
It was additionally introduced through the panel that Season 2 would see the debut of an aftershow for The Boys, titled, Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. The collection is about to be hosted by Aisha Tyler (Archer) and can function members of the forged and crew of The Boys. According to Kripke, Inside the Boys–which he assures followers is a double entendre–is “a deep dive into how we make this insane thing.”
In a press release, Tyler stated, “The Boys is one of the smartest, most irreverent, unapologetically badass shows streaming. I became a fan during Season 1 and this season I’m stoked to be flying fans into the heart of the show as host of Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. Season 2 is bigger, badder, and more audacious than ever before, so join me after every episode as we dig through the rubble pile of our feelings. I promise, we’ll get through it like The Boys–dysfunctional, but together.”
During the panel, the forged mentioned the upcoming Season 2, which begins with the Boys themselves on the run, Homelander uncontrolled, and Starlight “trapped” in her present scenario inside the Seven. Showrunner Eric Kripke spoke to the present’s biting social commentary, and teased that Season 2 will deal with white supremacy, white nationalism, and systemic racism.
Karl Urban, who performs fan favourite Butcher, teased his Season 2 storyline. “The end of [Season 1] was a complete game changer for Butcher,” he stated. “It was a real paradigm shift. It changes everything going forward for him, you know–his objective through Season 2 is to really find Rebecca and rescue her, to get his wife back. And so if Season 1 was Butcher really focused on blind revenge for the perceived death of his wife, Season 2 really becomes about getting her and saving her, and the moral questions that arise from that.”
The Boys follows a group of misfits who wish to expose corrupt superheroes, primarily the group referred to as The Seven. In the world of the present, they’re basically the Justice League, however run by the world’s greediest company. The collection stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, and Karen Fukuhara, amongst many others. Season 2 premieres on September 4.
