Jack Quaid & Antony Starr Break Down ‘The Boys’ Season 2 Power Flip (VIDEO)
[email protected] kicked off Thursday, July 23 with a number of must-see virtual panels, including a raucous get-together with the cast of Amazon Prime Video’s phenomenally fun (and bloody!) series, The Boys.
The irreverent action-comedy based on the comic books by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson took fans a wild ride in its first season, as the titular band of vigilantes — including mind-blown newbie Hughie (Jack Quaid) — worked to take down the corporate-backed superteam of The Seven, led by their demented leader, Homelander (Antony Starr, in a mix of hot and horrifying). During the panel, it was revealed that the show had been renewed for a third season and that Aisha Tyler would be hosting an aftershow, Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys.
Oh and speaking of “inside,” they also dropped this incredible and NSFW clip from the new season that is, well, a whale of a time.
In Season 2, we can confirm the comedy and carnage are amped up even more, and that You’re the Worst‘s Aya Cash is a killer addition to the Seven’s ranks of douchey supes. Oh and a televised funeral in the premiere features one of the greatest sight gags ever.
To celebrate The Boys‘ return both to Comic-Con and our screens on September 4, TV Insider chatted up the so-watchable Banshee vet Starr, the hilarious Quaid, and showrunner Eric Kripke, who admitted that it’s “a metric-ton of fun” taking on a genre that is everywhere these days and turning it on it’s head… or in the case of this show, tearing that head right off its shoulders.
