The Boys star Karl Urban shared a new image of himself and Karen Fukuhara as production continues on the show’s second season.
Urban posted an image of himself with Karen Fukuhara, who plays The Female/Kimiko, to Instagram. He captioned the image, “We Cooking up some Diabolical sh*t y’all for season 2.” The image seems to tease a growing relationship between The Female and Billy Butcher.
Meanwhile, series co-creator Seth Rogen revealed that he’s seen the first episode – and it’s more than any of them could’ve imagined:
“They already have more resources for the second season. They’re adding more characters, the scope of the show organically grows as the show continues. We just watched, actually, the first episode of the second season this week. It was a wonderful thing as producers. This is way better than I ever could’ve hoped it would be.”
With the series released and work on the second season underway, Rogen believes having the first season out there as a resource for the returning actors helps ease the process of getting back into “character mode”:
“With a show like The Boys, especially, where the tone is so unique, for the actors to be able to watch the show and to see like, ‘Oh, that’s what it is.’ It allows them to come back completely locked into it.”
Adapted from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic of the same name, The Boys has proven itself a smash-hit for Amazon Prime. In addition to receiving great reviews, The Boys is already one of the most-watched shows ever on the streaming platform. A second season of the show was announced before the premiere of the first, with a bigger cast and budget.
The Boys stars Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as the Female, Erin Moriarty as Annie January, Chace Crawford as the Deep, Antony Starr as Homelander and Simon Pegg as Hughie’s dad. The release date of Season 2 is not known at this time.
