Amazon’s The Boys has already entered production on Season 2, with cameras already rolling before the first season even premiered, and the new season promises to be even “more intense”. Series showrunner Eric Kripke took to Twitter over the weekend to share the first blood-soaked photo from the set.
“A small token for The Boys TV fans,” Kripke wrote. “The world’s first pic of Season 2. As you can see, we’re up to our old tricks.”

The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. They’re as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as gods. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.” The show retains most of the comic’s (available for purchase here) boundary-pushing violence and sexuality while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame.
The series stars Karl Urban (Star Trek, Judge Dredd) as Billy Butcher, the ringleader of the vigilantes who risk it all to go against a group of all-powerful characters. Jack Quaid plays Hughie, with Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, Jennifer Esposito as CIA agent Susan L. Rayner, and Karen Fukuhara as the Female. Elisabeth Shue also co-stars in the series alongside Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and Nathan Mitchell. Additionally, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen (AMC’s Preacher) produced, along with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke.
