The new trailer shows that season 2 will be bloodier, more creepy, and more interesting considering that The Seven uses political propaganda techniques about terrorists to get everyone to support their violent behavior.
In another teaser trailer posted on July 8th by Amazon, we see The Boys – hiding from The Seven – seeing a television news report in a dark living room that says their leader Billy Butcher and all of their gang of the police are searched for various crimes.

for the second season on December 5, 2019. The footage showed a slow motion shot of Homelander (Antony Starr) pouring a bloody substance over his face.

The Boys Story (Season One Summary)
In season 1, the seven cause a young man named Hughie (Jack Quaid) to take revenge if they accidentally kill his girlfriend. Hughie joins anti-Cape vigilante The Boys.
The team consists of charismatic leader Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) as well as breast milk (Laz Alonso), woman (Karen Fukuhara) and Frenchie (Tomer Capon).
But there is controversy within the seven when newcomer Annie January / Starlight (Erin Moriarty) joins. It struggles with everything from the dangers of fame to. Through their eyes we see everything that is wrong with the seven.
At the end of season one, The Seven’s lineup will change forever. Aquaman-like superhero The Deep (Chace Crawford) is pushed out of the limelight after sexually assaulting his superhero Starlight in an incident that ended in a # MeToo scandal.
Superhero A-Train (Jessie Usher) is a drug addict who uses a superhero level steroid to run faster, with fatal results.
The handler of the seven, Madelyn Stillwell (Elisabeth Shue), is murdered by superhero The Homelander (Antony Starr) during a shocking revelation that she kept secret from him (he secretly produced a superbaby). The twist is that the mother is Billy Butcher’s wife, whom he thought was dead.
The Boys Story (Season 2)
In season 2, all of these action points need to be addressed and a new handler and maybe a few superheroes involved.
If The Homelander gets out of hand, it may be up to superheroes Starlight and Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) to make The Seven real superheroes who are actually more about protecting humanity than their own superhero image.
The new actors include the timeless actors Goran Visnjic and Claudia Doumit. Visnjic plays Alistair Adana, the charismatic leader of a mysterious church. Doumit will play Victoria Neuman, a young prodigy congresswoman. Aya Cash plays a super-powerful neo-Nazi named Stormfront.
“I think Stormfront is like a nuclear bomb that explodes in the seven,” Cash told Entertainment Weekly in March. “She’s here to try to get Vought back to the original idea behind superhero creation, and she can be a feminist.”
