One of the hottest new TV shows around, The Boys, returns in September with the show’s second season. Based on the hit comic of the same name, The Boys was an instant hit and follows a group of average joes who set about taking down a group of ‘superheroes’ who abuse their powers.
With the series’ popularity, speculation has run wild over where they go will go next and it’s recently been revealed by the show’s creator, Eric Kripke, that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is currently in talks to join the show in the third season.
JDM, who currently stars as Negan in another comic book based TV show The Walking Dead, expressed interest in joining the show during its first season and in an interview with Collider, Kripke revealed he was discussing potential roles with Morgan.
“I absolutely have. There’s one role we’re already talking about. He has to, uh, we have to like coordinate. Because you know, he’s on The Walking Dead, so he has another home. But we already talked about one role, and there might be a potential other that we’re talking about. But we are, just this past week we were literally texting back and forth about trying to figure out how to get him on the show. I don’t think it’s a done deal yet, but the will is there, and we’re both talking about it.”
Landing an actor of JDM’s calibre would be a huge statement of intent for The Boys, with the actor’s resume including roles in Watchmen, Supernatural, The Walking Dead and Batman vs. Superman.
The Boys’ second season is set to premiere in September and will likely build on what was a very successful first outing.
