The Boys: Season Two; Early Renewal for Amazon Superhero Series

Amazon Renewed 'The Boys' For A Second Season Before The Premiere

Amazon Renewed 'The Boys' For A Second Season Before The Premiere

During the show's panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Amazon has announced that their new TV series The Boys has already been renewed for a second season with production already underway! Bring on the bloody super-powered mayhem. The Boys are also looking to take down Vought, a giant conglomerate which manages the superheros.

But the early renewal news isn't the only news out of Comic-Con: The gang will head into its sophomore season with a new addition: You're the Worst's Aya Cash is joining the cast as the superhero Stormfront. In the comics, the character is a male "hero" who is something of a combination between Thor and Shazam!, except he's hiding his true origin as the first successful super soldier of the Third Reich, which goes in line with his racist ideology.

The Boys was developed by showrunner Eric Kripke (Supernatural), who also serves as writer and executive producer.

Ben Stokes nominated for ‘New Zealander of the Year’ Award
The match though had its share of ups and downs as the momentum swung from one side to another. It might seem weird at first, as Stokes wasn't playing for the Kiwis, but for England.

Cast members to be present at the SDCC panel included Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara and Elisabeth Shue, according to The Wrap. The series follows the titular group of renegades in a world in which superheroes only appear heroic as part of a public facade, and in reality use their power behind the scenes to indulge in all manner of corruption.

The Boys reaches Amazon Prime on July 26, with season 2 likely following next year.

The source material, which ran for 72 issues between 2006 and 2012, was co-created by Darick Robertson, who helped co-create the Happy graphic novel series that was recently adapted by SYFY, and Garth Ennis, who's known for creating the Preacher comic series with a TV adaptation now running on AMC. Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane) directed the pilot episode, while Kripke directed the season finale.
