Plot Synopsis

Based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's comic book series of the same name, THE BOYS is a superhero drama series that explores 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. When Hughie 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, who recruits him to join in his pursuit of some vigilante justice against the Supes -- who are not exactly what they seem. Executive produced by Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg, THE BOYS premiered on Amazon Prime on Friday, July 26, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
