What will happen in The Boys season 2?
Season one ended very dramatically for the group of vigilantes with a number of questions ready to be answered in season two.

As well as this A-Train was seemingly left for dead after a run-in with Hughie.
The Boys are all still on the run as well after escaping the grips of the Seven and will need to regroup.
