Digging Deeper

The Boys takes place in a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame and revolves around 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.

The series stars Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Elisabeth Shue as Madelyn Stillwell, and Erin Moriarty as Annie January a.k.a. Starlight.  The series is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on July 26, 2019.
