Butcher Lays Out ‘The Boys’ Season 2 Situation In New Trailer

by Erik Amaya

The second season of The Boys is still a month away, but Amazon took the occasion to offer one more glimpse at the anarchy to come with this new trailer for the returning series. In it, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) explains his disappearance, the new stakes for the group, and his plan to kill all the Supes. Will the Boys recommit to his leadership?
Well, of course they well, this is The Boys after all.

But we at least see some questions brought up during the Comic-Con@Home panel answered, like Hughie’s (Jack Quaid) choice to rejoin Butcher and whether or not he meets up with Starlight (Erin Moriarty) again. Of course, their romance is still up in the air, particularly with Homelander (Antony Starr) directing her to kill the wee lad.
Also, the trailer offers the biggest tease regarding Stormfront’s (Aya Cash) real intentions in joining the Seven. Everyone involved in the show has played really coy about it — despite the fact it’s a marquee facet of her comic book counterpart — but seeing one of her rallies in the trailer, it’s clear what she’s really about. And now that we think on it, Homelander is the sort of man to be swayed by that particular ideology. Will he succumb or will her threat force him to team up with the Boys in the end?
The Boys returns to Amazon on September 4th.
