Billy Butcher actor Karl Urban has teased when season 2 of Amazon Prime’s superhero show The Boys will premiere.
According to a recent Instagram post, fans can expect to see the comic book series returning to Amazon Prime in summer next year.
Posting a behind-the-scenes selfie, he wrote: “Cut and print ! That’s a wrap for Billy Butcher on season 2 of @theboystv . Massive thanks to our awesome. Crew n cast , love you all . The Boys 2. On yer telle Mid 2020 #gonefishing [sic].”
Antony Starr (who portrays Homelander in the series) replied: “CONGRATS NEMESIS!!!”You’re a machine brother! Love that we are here together and you rocked season two. Fans are gonna go NUTS over you this season.”
Co-creators of The Boys Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are already singing season 2’s praises, having seen the first episode.
Rogen told Collider: “They already have more resources for the second season. They’re adding more characters, the scope of the show organically grows as the show continues.
“We just watched, actually, the first episode of the second season this week. It was a wonderful thing as producers.
“This is way better than I ever could’ve hoped it would be.”
The show focuses around the trials and tribulations of a group of superheroes who are all really bad people.
Explaining his attraction to the premise, Rogen said: “Being very famous makes people go crazy – I’ve seen a lot of that personally. And in a world where we’re inundated by superheroes, it was a very logical line of, ‘Well, if superheroes were real, a lot of them would probably be pretty terrible.’ If people who sing really well lose their minds, imagine if you could fly or were bomb-proof! What kinds of personalities would that spawn?”
The Boys season 1 is available right now on Amazon Prime Video, for all those who fancy catching up on the hype or simply re-watching!
