Here is everything we know so far about season 2.

When is it released?

The second season has begun filming in Toronto, so should be wrapped by the end of 2019.

That means fans can probably expect season 2 in summer 2020, at a similar time as season 1.

Who are the new cast?

It was revealed at Comic Con that You’re the Worst star Aya Cash is joining the series as the ‘Supe’ Stormfront.

Stormfront’s public-facing image is that he is a reincarnated Viking with electrical powers and the ability to control the weather – but his true origin story is much darker.

He is one of the most powerful ‘Supes’ and is part of a team called Payback in the comic series.

It has not been revealed whether other members of Payback such as Tek Knight, Soldier Boy and Crimson Countess will be in the second season.

Who will be back from season 1?

We don’t want to spoil who survives and who doesn’t in season 1, but anyone from the main cast who doesn’t die is more than likely to return.

The central cast for season 1 are The Boys; Hughie (Jack Quaid) Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and The Female (Karen Fukuhara).

The Supes of The Seven are Homelander (Antony Starr), Starlight (Erin Moriarty), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) The Deep (Chace Crawford) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell).
