Tv Season Info

The even more intense, more insane Season 2 finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation's paranoia.

Audience Reviews for The Boys: Season 2

    Season one was good, but season two was not. I'm really sick of shows having such a terrible drop off in quality from the first season to the second. It's like the showrunners know that they need to suck you in with a good first season, and then they can shove all the crap into the second season that hey really wanted to make from the start.

    A step down from season one

    One of the best superhero adaptation to date, with a lot of blood and a unique tone, this isn't your average piece of superhero media. Having an amazing cast and one of the best characters in tv history with Billy Butcher, this is without a doubt Amazon's best work to date. Amazing visual effects, a psychopathic villain who you feel sympathetic for and a killer soundtrack, I could keep going on why this is a work of art but you get the picture. I can't stress this enough, everyone who loves the action genre should watch this. One of the few seasons in television I've watched multiple times and I can't wait for season 3!

    Not sure how they're going to top this season. But I said the same after the 1st.
  • Jul 16, 2021
    I'm not sure you can lower a score for being different, but still the best at something. Which this is, it's just not as shocking as it was when you'd never seen it before, like the first season.
  • Jul 11, 2021
    first season is the best . second ok . but how can u top the first
  • Jul 08, 2021
    A little slower, and more spaced out that season 1 - but definitely leaves you wanting more! I can't wait for season 3!

    Emotional, overdramatic fluff. The plot makes no sense and is ridden with self-solving magic devices. Whenever the plot needs something to happen it most conveniently does. All the whim is gone and the violence just became gratuitous. The first season used the grotesque to put a point to a storyline and really take it home with the viewer. But, guess every episode having to 1up the previous for so long eventually made the writers try to push things more and more and it just seems dumb at this point. Every scene a weird sacrifice that proves unnecessary in the next. It really looks like they write one episode at a time. Too bad I kind of enjoyed the first season but this one became tired fast. Oh well.

    Felt unnecessarily gory at points, but was hard to stop watching.

    Here we go again. Another show that presents a season one, that has panache and vitality, then moves into season two. Too political, too focused on feelings, too focused on identity. It so boring. Dont even bother. I will skip the remaining episodes and wait to season three. It's such a pity because it was one of the shows that wanted me to get amazon prime. The soundtrack is DREADFUL.
