The Boys

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:

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:

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.
