What’s This TV Show About?
An Amazon Prime Video superhero drama from Eric Kripke, based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Elisabeth Shue, Jennifer Esposito, Alex Hassell, and Simon Pegg. It unfolds in a world in which superheroes are more idolized than celebrities, and some of them are abusing their superpowers. After Hughie Campbell’s (Quaid) love becomes collateral damage to one of the Supes of The Seven, he teams up with Billy Butcher (Urban) and his gang of vigilantes called The Boys. Now they’re out to expose the truth about superheroes, and about Vought — the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that both manages the Supes and covers up their dirty secrets.
Unless they decide to publicize viewership, it is often difficult to predict whether Amazon will cancel or renew a TV show like The Boys for season two, but not this time. The subscription streamer renewed the superhero drama for a second season, a week prior to the series premiere. Until the next installment rolls around, I’ll dine elsewhere, keep an eye on the trades, and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free news alerts on The Boys.
