It’s not that The Boys are back in town so much as that they never left.

Amazon surprised recently by renewing The Boys, their new show about outlandish action in a world run by corrupt superheroes, for a second season before the first had even aired. And now it seems that second season has already started filming. Or, at least, bloodletting.


On Twitter, showrunner Eric Kripke has shared a picture from their work on season two, which features the show’s actors, specifically Tomar Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Jack Quaid, and Laz Alonso, covered in quite a bit of blood. And giving the finger, alongside Kripke himself. Edgy.

“As you can see, we’re up to our old tricks,” Kripke said in the image’s caption. The Boys has a first season out now on Amazon Prime, and a second season is coming sooner than we’d probably guess.

I hope it does come soon because even though they called those 8 episodes “season 1,” it felt more like a half a season. It didn’t resolve much of anything and mostly existed to introduce us to the universe and set up “Season 2.”
