The Boys

About the Show

When Hughie (Jack Quaid, "The Hunger Games") suffers a devastating loss at the hands of a reckless Supe his devastation turns to outrage when he discovers there is no legal recourse for victims of collateral superhero damage. While still reeling from his trauma Hughie meets a mysterious operative, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, "Star Trek"), who recruits him to join in his pursuit of some vigilante justice against the Supes-who are not exactly what they seem.

"The Boys" is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes - who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods - abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It's the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven, and Vought - the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes and covers up all of their dirty secrets.

The Boys are rounded out by Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso, "Detroit"), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, "Hostages"), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, "Suicide Squad"). Simon Pegg ("Mission: Impossible - Fallout") guest stars as Hughie's father.

The Supes of The Seven are led by Homelander (Antony Starr, "Banshee") who is joined by Starlight (Erin Moriarty, "Captain Fantastic"), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott, "House of Cards"), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher, "Independence Day: Resurgence"), The Deep (Chace Crawford, "Gossip Girl") and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell, "Supernatural").

Academy Award® nominee Elisabeth Shue ("Leaving Las Vegas") stars as Madelyn Stillwell, Vought's Senior VP of Hero Management.

Based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, "The Boys" was developed by showrunner Eric Kripke ("Supernatural"), who also serves as writer, executive producer and directed the season finale. Joining Kripke as executive producers are Point Grey Pictures' Seth Rogen ("Preacher"), Evan Goldberg ("Preacher"), and James Weaver ("Preacher"), Original Film's Neal H. Moritz ("Prison Break"), Pavun Shetty ("New Girl") and Ori Marmur ("Preacher"), as well as Ken Levin and Jason Netter. Ennis and Robertson also co-executive produce. The pilot episode was directed by Dan Trachtenberg ("10 Cloverfield Lane").

The eight-episode Amazon Prime Video original series is co-produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film.
