The second season of Amazon’s “The Boys” has already wrapped filming with months of post-production laying ahead. Even so, the series came back in a big way this weekend with several castmembers showing up at CCXP in Sao Paulo, Brazil where the new trailer debuted.
Anthony Starr, Jessie Usher, Karen Fukuhara and Erin Moriarty were on hand at the convention where they teased the new season will get a lot bloodier than the last one. Three of them weighed in with comments on how things change in the new batch of episodes.
First up, Starr says: “Season One for Homelander was about reconciling his past, dealing with his past, and one of the things that happen to all the characters [in Season 2], is whatever he had in Season One gets taken away. It’s a very internal journey. It gets really fucking weird, and I can’t tell you what, but I’ve done some of the weirdest things I’ve ever done.”
Next, Usher says: “They spent a season-long building up during Season One that kind of gets torn away, stripped away, taken from the characters and shows who we really are. Because everyone’s wearing a mask… We’ve seen the what but now we’re learning the why.”
Fukuhara meanwhile spoke about showrunner Eric Kripke, saying: “He wants it to be, yes big, more action, bigger sets all of that, but he wanted every character to dive into their past. It just digs deeper. What I really enjoyed this season… since all of the Boys are so close and we shoot together all the time, we got a lot closer in Season 2 and I hope that translated.”
The new season is expected to debut around mid-2020.
