What happens in season 2?
Amazon stated that “The even more intense, more insane Season 2 finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes”. The team is trying to get together and defeat Vought. Hughie, Mother’s Milk, Frenchie and Kimiko start to adjust to a new regular life, with Butcher nowhere to be found. Starlight must navigate her place in The Seven with Homelander ramping up to a new role. His power is at thread due to the arrival of the new Stormfront (Aya Cash), a media-savvy new Supe following a different agenda. In addition, the threat of a Supervillain becomes central to the plot and makes waves as Vought trys to build on the nation’s paranoia.
Amazon also mentioned the rest of the cast, with The Supes of The Seven also including Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell). Recurring stars in season two include Claudia Doumit, Goran Visnijc, Malcolm Barrett, Colby Minifie, Shantel VanSanten, Cameron Crovetti, PJ Byrne, Laila Robbins and Giancarlo Esposito returning as Vought boss Stan Edgar, among others.

About this show:
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 and covers up all of their dirty secrets. The Boys are Hughie (Jack Quaid, "The Hunger Games"), Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, "Star Trek"), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso, "Detroit"), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, "Hostages"), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, "Suicide Squad"). Simon Pegg ("Mission: Impossible - Fallout") guest stars as Hughie's father.
The Supes of The Seven are led by Homelander (Antony Starr, "Banshee") who is joined by Starlight (Erin Moriarty, "Captain Fantastic"), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott, "House of Cards"), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher, "Independence Day: Resurgence"), The Deep (Chace Crawford, "Gossip Girl") and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell, "Supernatural").
Academy Award(R) nominee Elisabeth Shue ("Leaving Las Vegas") stars as Madelyn Stillwell, Vought's Senior VP of Hero Management.
Based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, "The Boys" was developed by showrunner Eric Kripke ("Supernatural"), who also serves as writer, executive producer and directed the season finale.
