The Boys' Season 2 Teaser: Supes hunt Butcher, want 'co*****ker* down', fans pit show with 'Umbrella Academy'
'The Boys' are back with an all-new season that is as violent, bloody and brutal as the first season
"America needs superheroes now more than ever" says Homelander in 'The Boys' Season 2 teaser trailer. He is right, but does he fit the bill? After Madelyn Stillwell's death, is there anyone who can control Homelander? From the looks of it, probably not. He, along with the other supes has initiated a manhunt for Billy Butcher and his known associates Frenchie, Mother's Milk, Kimiko and Hughie Campbell. After a terrific Season 1 ending where Homelander was finally able to figure out Billy's plans to erase the supes out of existence, this season will see Homelander leave no stone unturned to ensure that Billy and his boys are destroyed.
While The Boys are in hiding, the supes have suffered some major damage themselves. Two of their members — A-Train and Black Noir — are dead and Deep was transferred to a branch office. So how will Homelander compensate for this loss? He takes the help of Federal authorities to run a multi statewide manhunt. However, Billy is not too far behind. They might be on the run, but he has come up with a great plan to take the supes down.
There is beheading, heads getting squashed, choppers going down and a lot of gunshots fired, which is a signature 'The Boys' style of narrating a story of revenge. And also, the season will definitely see more of Homelander's strange child-like behavior on the surface, which is extremely inappropriate because of the heavy sexual innuendo. He also hasn't given up on killing people in shocking manner as the trailer sees him pushing a young boy off of a terrace possibly to his death with a chilling smile on his face.
However, the teaser doesn't give us any major spoilers regarding how Starlight (Erin Moriarty) will work together with the supes now that she knows their truth. There is also no hint about her relationship with Hughie that had gone through extreme highs and lows last season. The teaser also doesn't hint at if Deep is a changed man after his experience away from the spotlight and the one time we saw him become a victim.
The teaser trailer has got fans super excited exactly because it hypes the show perfectly without giving away spoilers. This has also left fans putting 'The Boys' with 'Umbrella Academy' which had its Season 2 trailer released on Wednesday, July 8. Minutes after the trailer of 'The Boys' Season 2 was shared, fans flooded social media with an appreciation for it, One fan wrote on YouTube, "Netflix, this is how you hype a show without spoiling all of it."
The show is full of references to 'Daddies' — from Billy's comment to Homelander returning with a feeding bottle — and fans love it. Especially Homelander's fetish with milk has become the butt of all fan jokes for now. One fan posted, "Oh my God, homelander still getting his milk even after he killed mummy!"
Another fan noted, "Ya'll have no idea how much popcorn I have stockpiled for the second this releases. Literally can not even wait for Homelander to be my favorite villain in another season."
'The Boys' Season 2 is slated to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 4.
