What is The Boys about?
The official synopsis of The Boys says it’s based on the graphic novel by the same name. This ran straight from 2008 to 2012. It is set in a world where superheroes have run amok and get involved in reckless behavior, potentially jeopardizing the safety of the world. The titular “The Boys” is a division of the CIA that watches over the superheroes to make sure they stay in line, and when necessary, kill them.

As for the forthcoming event we should expect to see more about the upcoming season with respect to new footage, trailer and plot building. We already saw a new superhero introduced and her name is “Stormfront”. She is rumored to be on par with our ‘antagonist’ Homelander in terms of power. The actress even explains the same by saying “Homelander is used to everyone being scared of him. She matches him. 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.”
