As Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy once famously sang - the boys are back. However, unlike Lynott, we're not referring to them wild-eyed boys that had been away. Instead we're talking about Amazon Prime's wildly successful anti-superhero show The Boys. Check out the trailer:
Yep, the show is heading back for more supercharged and brutal action, and now - finally - we're starting to get a couple of details about what to expect.
Amazon trotted out a few of the cast members for a couple of questions at ComicCon Experience (CCXP ) in São Paulo where they also officially unveiled the trailer for the new series.
That slanted officially refers to an unfortunate leak earlier in the week in which a non-final version of the trailer was accidentally distributed.
Anyway, what can we expect from the second coming of The Seven, and their counterparts, the titular Boys?
Well, actors Anthony Starr, Karen Fukuhara, Erin Moriarty, and Jessie Usher took to the stage in Brazil to answer questions relating to just that.
Let's start with the important stuff. What can we expect?
Star offered: "More blood."
Oh, that's good.
"There's lots of blood," he confirmed.
When asked to go any further, he once again reiterated: "Blood."
Right, we get it.
He did eventually elaborate a bit further. Of his character Homelander, Starr said: "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."
He added: "It gets really f***ing weird, and I can't tell you what, but I've done some of the weirdest things I've ever done."
His co-star Usher said: "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."
Speaking about the show's architect, Eric Kripke, and his intentions, Fukuhara added: "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."
If you want to know more, you can check out the actual trailer above. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until it touches down on Amazon Prime in mid-2020.
