Amazon Prime has unveiled a first look clip from the upcoming second season of The Boys.
It’s time to meet Stormfront (Aya Cash, You’re the Worst, Fosse/Verdon), the newest member of The Seven. She’s clearly not shy, turning up with attitude at the ready onto the set of a promo that Homelander (Antony Starr) and Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) are filming.
Homelander, in particular, isn’t happy at all to learn of the new addition. And with good reason. “[Homelander’s] used to everyone being scared of him. She matches him,” Cash said in an interview with EW; the outlet also shared the image below. “That’s not to say she doesn’t understand his power and tiptoe around it sometimes, but she’s also willing to challenge him. Ultimately, I think the dynamic between the two is terrifying and will change who Homelander is.”
Starr agrees: “She’s the grenade that gets thrown into Homelander’s world and the world of the Seven. She really causes me so many problems.”
The Boys season 2 premieres on September 4.
Official synopsis for The Boys:
The Boys is an 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 their formidable Vought backing.
