While there are exceptions to the rule, most television shows don’t get a second season order until the first at the very least debuts but Karl Urban (‘Thor: Ragnarok’,’Star Trek: Beyond’) may have revealed that ‘The Boys‘ will be back for more. While Amazon Studios has yet to confirm that a sophomore season is coming, fans of the comic might just have something to look forward to thanks to a comment Urban left on social media while wrapping on the first outing.
Showrunner Eric Kripke recently announced that the first season had come to a close thanks to Twitter where he shared that:
That’s a wrap on directing the season finale of #TheBoys. Exhausting, occasionally terrifying, & the most fun I’ve had at work in a long, long time. Thanks to the MIND BLOWING cast & crew. Guys, I think you’ll truly love this show. I know I do. @theboystv @PrimeVideo @Sony pic.twitter.com/kzEUvVv0LG

While that doesn’t really share anything about potentially coming back for more, Urban’s response could be thought of either as wishful thinking or an early promise of things to come:

Home ! after 4 1/2 months shooting The Boys . Massive thanks to the phenomenal Toronto crew , it’s been an absolute honor and a privilege to work with you all and I look forward to seeing you for S2 next year . The Boys coming to Amazon prime mid 2019 #Theboys @theboystv @amazonprimevideo
While he seems pretty confident here, it should be noted that none of the rest of the crew shared the same sentiment that a follow up was a sure thing.
It isn’t unheard of for a series to get picked up before the first season airs but usually, that announcement has come from a studio and not one of the actors involved in a project.
Do you think that Karl Urban’s comments mean that ‘The Boys’ has already been picked up for a second season or is this wishful thinking on his part? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
In a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame,
THE BOYS centers on a group of vigilantes known informally as “The Boys,” who set out to
take down corrupt superheroes with no more than their blue-collar grit and a willingness to
fight dirty. THE BOYS is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who
are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods – abuse their
superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as
The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” and Vought – the
multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes.
