Even though Vought Industries cooked up cover stories for the members of The Seven, as viewers of Amazon’s breakout hit ‘The Boys’ are discovering, these super beings are essentially lab rats, created by the Vought scientists and raised in seclusion. And as this new clip reveals, the Homelander has been pretty messed up all along.
The second season of the superhero satire has wrapped, but it isn’t expected to be released until next summer, around the same time that the show debuted this year. But the show’s Twitter account has released this clip which focuses on a young Homelander as he is raised in captivity and experiences some growing pains. (Well, it’s more like he is dishing out the pain.)
Check out this new clip below:

As for what fans can expect from Season 2, star Jack Quaid recently revealed:
“I’ve done things this season that are definite firsts for me in my career, and I probably won’t do them again since. Definitely a moment… I can’t give it away, but when you see it, you’ll know what I’m talking about.”
“And I think we’ve gotten way deeper with every single character on the show. It’s bigger, but it’s a lot deeper with everyone. And I think that that’s what’s important about Season 2 is not that you just go bigger and have more fights – which we totally have – but that you really delve into the characters and understand what makes them tick. And I know from Hughie’s perspective, we get into a lot of that. So yeah. I’m just really excited for people to see season two. I think it’s even better than season one, in my opinion.”
Season 1 was a huge hit, although Amazon doesn’t divulge its streaming numbers. The cast and crew were out in full-force at San Diego Comic-Con to promote it. Now expect a triumphant return in 2020, now that fans have had a taste and seem to like it.
Did you enjoy Season 1 of ‘The Boys’? Are you looking forward to more?
