You may not learn much about what is to come in the second season of Amazon Prime Video's 'The Boys' from the new teaser trailer but it's clear that it is full of our favorite (anti-)superheroes, blood, and gore.

'The Boys' gave its viewers an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes—who are now also celebrities—get as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abusing their superpowers rather than using them for good. This is when an eponymously named group of humans (only one of whom has superpowers) embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about "The Seven" and their formidable Vought backing.

It looks like all of Season 1's main characters are back, even A-Train who we presumed dead after his drug use-induced heart attack at the end of the last season. However, in a blink-and-you-miss shot, we see him in what is presumably a hospital.



 

The first shot of the trailer is Homelander—covered in blood—descending on someone looking at them. Then, the trailer cuts into a montage of shots featuring hyperviolence and chaos—we can expect 'The Boys' to double down on everything that made the first season stand out. There are bodies being ripped apart and blood splattering everywhere. We also see that there is a confrontation between Homelander and Starlight possibly inside the Vought International building.

According to the trailer, the second season will be out sometime in 2020 but the exact date hasn't been revealed.

Filming for Season 2 wrapped up in November 2019. Patton Oswalt was announced to be playing a secret role in the second season.

Also, 'Timeless' alums Goran Visnjic and Claudia Doumit are also in Season 2. Visnjic will portray Alistair Adana, the charismatic and shadowy leader of a mysterious church. Doumit will play Victoria Neuman, a young wunderkind congresswoman.

'The Boys' stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Chace Crawford, and Elizabeth Shue and is made by Sony Pictures TV Studios, which co-produces with Amazon and Neal H. Moritz’s studio-based Original Films.
