The Boys season 2 debuts a bloody new clip for Comic-Con, gets season 3 renewal

The Boys Season 2 - First Look Clip: The Whale | Amazon Prime Video

It’s no secret that The Boys isn’t a show for the squeamish, but the latest clip from season 2 of Amazon Studios’ ultraviolent, irreverent deconstruction of superhero sagas takes things to an entirely new, gory level  — particularly if you’re a fan of marine mammals.

The gruesome clip from the hit show’s second season premiered Thursday during The Boys season 2 panel for Comic-Con@Home, the virtual event that’s substituting for San Diego Comic-Con International this year. In the clip, the titular group of superhero hunters finds itself pursued by aquatic super-vigilante The Deep and a group of marine animals while piloting a boat, only to end up getting up close and personal with a whale in order to make their escape.

Along with debuting the bloody clip from the show’s upcoming season and engaging in some spirited — but relatively spoiler-free — conversation about where The Boys is headed, the show’s cast and creative team also revealed that the series has been renewed for a third season by Amazon. The announcement of the show’s season 3 renewal was made by executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in the final moments of the panel event.

You can watch the full panel above. It includes series showrunner Eric Kripke and returning cast members Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, and Karen Fukuhara. The panel was also joined by Aya Cash, who plays a new superpowered character, Stormfront, in season 2.

Archer actress Aisha Tyler, who served as the panel’s moderator, also revealed that she’ll host a post-episode discussion series that will be available on Amazon Prime Video after each new episode of The Boys debuts on the service.

Season 2 of The Boys is scheduled to premiere September 4 on Amazon Prime Video.

The Boys Presents: Diabolical review: A bloody good time
Wee Hughie and Butcher Billy walk through a park in a scene from The Boys Presents: Diabolical anthology series.

When Amazon Studios announced plans to adapt Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's over-the-top superhero comic series The Boys, few believed a live-action series could deliver a faithful translation of the comic's raunchy, ultraviolent saga of celebrity superhumans run amok. But the Prime Video series did indeed deliver, to the tune of two critically praised seasons so far and another chapter on the way.

The sex- and gore-filled universe of The Boys now gets its first spinoff project with The Boys Presents: Diabolical, an animated anthology series delivering a batch of tales set in and around the show's central narrative from a surprisingly star-studded creative team.

The Boys get animated, and more twisted, in Diabolical trailer
Billy Butcher in The Boys: Diabolical.

After skipping 2021, The Boys season 3 will premiere on Amazon Prime on June 3. But if you can't wait until this summer, the creators behind the series have a treat for you next month. The Boys: Diabolical is an anthology of animated shorts set in the world of The Boys. And if the new trailer is any indication, the alternative medium has allowed Diabolical to go even farther than the live-action series.

There are a few familiar faces in the trailer, including the leader of the Boys, Billy Butcher, and his most-hated super adversary, Homelander. But the big takeaway is that the problems in this anthology are caused by people who want superhuman powers of their own. Taking a dose of Compound V can be life-changing, and not in a good way. One guy wants to be Homelander so badly that he seemingly gets his wish. Somehow, we suspect the real Homelander will make sure that's a fatal mistake.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel returns in new season 4 trailer
Rachel Brosnahan opens her arms onstage in The Marvelous Mrs. Maise.

It's been over two years since Miriam "Midge" Maisel last took the stage in Amazon Prime's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. But the wait is almost over as a new trailer reveals more about the upcoming fourth season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. And with it comes a date for the season premiere: Friday, February 18. In a somewhat surprising move, Amazon won't be dropping the new season all at once. Instead, two new episodes will be released each week for four weeks.

In the new trailer, some time has passed since Midge was unceremoniously dropped from a comedy tour. Fortunately, the titular heroine has bounced back with a new comedy gig that allows her far more creative freedom than she ever had before. Midge has never been afraid of speaking her mind, and now she can get away with it. But as the '60s begin, Midge's career may once again upset the delicate relationships she has with her friends and family.
