The second season was first launched to Amazon in September 2020, and episodes were escorted back to us up until the big finale on October 9. This was enormously different from the show’s debut season, which launched on the streaming platform – in its entirety – on July 26, 2019. The Boys Season 2 is set to out on Amazon Prime Video on September 4, 2020, a declaration made during a June Livestream with the cast and crew hosted by Patton Oswalt, who will be appearing in the new season. The streaming service will drop 3 episodes upfront and then release the others each Friday until October 9th.
The Boys Season 2 Launch Date
The Boys season 2 launch date is September 4, 2020. The first three episodes are out now. The rest of five will go live each week on Amazon Prime Video to give “the audience the chance to just absorb and retrieve after every episode”. That means the finale will go out on October 9, so you’ve got a month of The Boys season 2 now.
In the meantime, the first scene from the second season of The Boys come on the scene back in August 2019 in the form of this crimson-immerse, bird-flipping set photo, the regard of showrunner Eric Kripke, who’s seen in the center among cast members Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Jack Quaid, and Laz Alonso.
Amazon’s The Boys turns the squeaky-clean superhero standard on its head. Constructed on the comic book series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, the show is about a scourge group called The Boys whose goal is to rip up down the nation’s top superheroes, who are, for the most part, under the control of mega-corporation Vought International and generally corrupt as hell. In a world where superheroes are importantly celebrities subject to the urges, promotion, and advantages of a major company, things are bounce to get dark and messy.
Amazon was clearly privy to the fact that The Boys was something individual even before it premiered since the online retail monolith’s streaming arm preemptively ordered a second season of the series back in July 2019. If you’re so willing, do check out our review of The Boys Season 1.
The Boys Season 2 Cast
With the first trailer and various other clips shown off as we have a good idea of the legally cast list now. Here is The Boys season 2 cast members we know will come back:
- Billy Butcher: Karl Urban
- Hughie Campbell: Jack Quaid
- Homelander: Antony Starr
- Annie January: Erin Moriarty

- Giancarlo Esposito: Mr Edgar

- Jensen Ackles: Soldier Boy
- Patton Oswalt: ???
The most recent addition to the cast is Shawn Ashmore’s The Lamplighter, a jury of The Seven who ‘retired’ before the show’s first episode allowing Starlight to join. We say ‘retired’, but, in the comics, he was really enforced out for killing Mallory’s grandchildren, and then given up to ward off a war among the Seven and the CIA. However, he then returns, which is at the root of why The Boys was insolvent eight years ago.
Patton Oswalt is connecting The Boys Season 2 cast for a “secret role,” as accepted by a tweet from showrunner Eric Kripke. Oswalt, the authority comedian, and narrator for ABC’s The Goldbergs is future off TV runs on Hulu’s revived Veronica Mars and Netflix’s revived Mystery Science Theater 3000, along with just now-call off handout in NBC’s A.P. Bio and a co-starring voice role as the titular unreal friend unicorn on Syfy’s Happy!. He also meadows a sporadically-revisited role on ABC Marvel series Agents of SHIELD as the lanyard-fixated identical Koenig siblings.
Who’s coming back for The Boys Season 2?
Most of the original cast will come back for Season 2. That get hold of in Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Karen Fukuhara as The Female, and Tomer Kapon as Frenchie. Malcolm Barrett (also a Timeless veteran), will come back as Seth Reed, a marketing executive assistant at Vought who had a few poignant moments in Season 1 of The Boys.
We can also anticipate most of the Seven to return as well, even though it hasn’t yet been sued. That would have Erin Moriarty as Starlight, Chace Crawford as The Deep, Antony Starr as Homelander, Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve, Nathan Mitchell as Black Noir, and Jessie T. Usher as A-Train. Also expected to return are Shantel Van Santen as Becca Butcher, Billy’s wife, and Giancarlo Esposito as Stan Edgar, the head of Vought International.
