The Boys are returning to Amazon Prime this fall, but they're not going to have an easy go of it from the looks of the trailer for the second season. Even though Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) returns after disappearing at the end of the first season finale, he and his teammates, including Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara), have pissed off the powerful superheroes that the world blindly loves. That means they're fugitives from the law, and they'll be threatened at every turn. Watch The Boys season 2 trailer below.

The dark comedy and extreme violence of The Boys is on full display here. Heads are smashed into walls in gory fashion, Billy Butcher climbs out of the carcass of an animal, and Homelander (Antony Starr) even throws a kid off a roof.

In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social-media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own.
