Last week Bloody Disgusting learned that the second season of Amazon’s violent superhero series “The Boys” is set to premiere on September 4th, with the first three episodes arriving on that date – subsequent episodes will air on a weekly basis. And it sounds like early planning is already underway for the third season, with a new face potentially being added to the mix.
While Erik Kripke was speaking with Collider this week, he’s been talking withJeffrey Dean Morgan(“The Walking Dead”) about a potential role in a future season of “The Boys”!
“There’s one role we’re already talking about. He has to, uh, we have to like coordinate. Because you know, he’s on The Walking Dead, so he has another home. But we already talked about one role, and there might be a potential other that we’re talking about,” Kripke told the site, when asked about Morgan expressing interest in joining the series. “Just this past week we were literally texting back and forth about trying to figure out how to get him on the show. I don’t think it’s a done deal yet, but the will is there, and we’re both talking about it.”
Now streaming through Amazon Prime, “The Boys” (based on the best-selling comics by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson) puts a bold, fresh and bloody new spin on the superhero genre, centered on a group of vigilantes who set out to take down corrupt superheroes. And in the world of “The Boys,” well, let’s just say these particular superheroes are total assholes.
The series hails from a team including Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
