THE BOYS Showrunner Shares Blood-Soaked First Photo From The Set Of Season 2

The Boys showrunner Erike Kripke poses alongside the bloodied group of badass vigilantes — Frenchie, The Female, Hughie, and Mother's Milk — in what is the first pic from the set of Season 2 of the show.

If there was any question that The Boys would tone down the blood and gore in its sophomore season, series showrunner Eric Kripke ended that with the first photo of Season 2.

As a thank you to fans for making The Boys one of Amazon Prime's most watched Original series, Kripke posted the "world's first pic of [Season 2]."

"As you can see, we're up to our old tricks," Kripke wrote alongside the photo, which features himself in the middle surrounded by Tomer Capon as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as The Female, Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk. Of course, missing from the photo is Karl Urban‘s Billy Butcher.

Exactly what these "tricks" will be in Season 2 remains to be seen, but the last time we saw Hughie covered in this much blood was when he detonated the C4 that was stuck up the bum of Translucent. One can only imagine what caused this latest bloodfest.

Executive produced by Eric Kripke and Seth Rogen, The Boys is a dark and satirical take on the superhero genre, based on the comic book series of the same name. The series follows a group of vigilantes as they fight back against superheroes who abuse their powers.

Kripke previously said the success of Season 1 has inspired him to "work even harder on Season 2," adding that "I don’t want Season 2 to go bigger, I want it to go deeper. A more intense, more insane, more wrenching, more character-driven season. It’s my one and only goal to make Season 2 even better than Season 1."

Topping the first season will be no easy feat as The Boys currently sits at an 81 percent on Rotten Tomatoes with an audience score of 94 percent.

In a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, The Boys centers on a group of vigilantes known informally as "the boys," who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than blue collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.

Season 1 of The Boys is currently streaming on Amazon Prime. Season 2, which was already ordered before the series premiered, doesn't yet have a release date, but clearly they are full speed ahead on filming.
