Everyone is waiting to watch The Boys season 2. It’s just a countdown for all the ways waiting for the satire superheroes series. Now to add more punch to it, a stellar actor is going to join this Amazon Prime series. Shawn Ashmore is set to season 2.
The “X-Men” fame actor will be seen in the role of Lamplighter in the upcoming second season of the web show.
“We were thrilled that Shawn — who is, let’s be honest, an OG superhero — wanted to play the crucial part of Lamplighter. He brings so much depth, menace, and world-weary humanity to this former member of the Seven. And Shawn is a really good guy. We’re grateful to have him join our bloody little family,” said showrunner of The Boys and executive producer Eric Kripke on roping in Shawn Ashmore.
“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.
The Boys Season 2 will premiere on Amazon Prime Video, with the first three episodes on September 4, and new episodes available each Friday, culminating in a finale on October 9.
