Butcher, Frenchie, Mother Milk … they are all “Wanted”. But the fine team of The Boys has not said its last word against the Seven.
What if the superheroes were a bit rogue or even downright malicious? It was with this tantalizing synopsis that The Boys baited us last year. Successful bet. The Amazon Prime Video series adapted from the comics by Garth Ennis is a great success (see our review of The Boys). Obviously since we waited hard to see what season 2 would look like. It is finally revealed today in a trailer doped with amphets.
We find our favorite band in a very bad position: Butcher, Frenchie, Mother Milk and their new recruit “the Girl” will have to play it tight. Wanted notices running on several states have been launched to get their hands on them. And with the Seven conglomerate turmoil chasing them, the game is not going to be easy. But given the final twist of the first season, we imagine that the rebels are motivated. Heads cut off, helicopter exploded… there will be sport.
We still hope that season 2 will take the time to deepen the past and the psychology of the characters, especially those very troubled by the disturbing Homelander. The first three episodes of the series will premiere on Prime Video on Friday, September 4, 2020. After which, the remaining five episodes will be available each Friday with a scheduled finale on October 9.
