Series premieres on Amazon Prime Video, July 26
How much is the trailer for new superhero show The Boys not kidding around? We’ll let you be the judge. But the NSFW new promo clip for the series, which premieres July 26 on Amazon Prime Video, is certainly not short of blood and guts.
Based on the comic by Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson (Happy!), The Boys explores what happens when superheroes abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. The show’s cast includes Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Chace Crawford, and Elisabeth Shue.
The Boys was developed by showrunner Eric Kripke (Supernatural).
“I want it to be graphic when it needs to be because that’s what’s best for the story,” Kripke told EW last year, “but I want to tell this character story about these regular, blue-collar humans taking on these entitled, super-powered, one-percenter gods and the relationships amongst them.”
