After watching the first season of The Boys, both viewers and critics fell in love with it. The debut season of The Boys appeared on Prime Video at the end of July 2019 and in two weeks became one of the most popular Amazon TV shows of all time.
A bold, unusual show that changes the established concept of superheroes and gives viewers fresh emotions and impressions.
The project is based on the eponymous comic strip by Garth Ennis, who, like many of his other works, has an ambiguous reputation among fans and critics. Fans every time expect surprises, as the authors boldly deviate from the canonical plot, making the story unpredictable.
The dog Terror – the star in many issues of the original comics of The Boys, did not receive significant attention in the first season of the series. Frustrated fans will surely be glad that this little “Boy” will have a big role in season 2. The creators explained that filming with the participation of an animal significantly complicates the process and takes a lot of time.
In the comics, the character of Billy Butcher has a favorite dog named Terror. This dog follows the Butcher almost everywhere and does some interesting things. Terror has been absent throughout the first season, although he can be seen during a flashback in the fourth episode. Karl Urban confirmed that the dog will take part in the second season, but did not disclose details:
You know what? You’re gonna love Season 2. . . If you love Terror, you’ll love Season 2. Definitely, Terror makes an appearance.”
Of course, it is still not thoroughly clear whether the dog will become part of the storyline or just play a cameo. One way or another, fans will be happy to see Billy’s four-legged favorite, to whom he was most attached.
Eric Kripke hinted that there would be some pretty tough scenes associated with Terror. During an interview with EW, he explained why in the first season this character did not receive proper attention.
The reason Terror doesn’t have a larger role this season is a most boring and practical one, which is it’s so fucking hard to work with animals. We have such an unbelievably challenging show anyway that I was just too intimidated by the idea of having an animal who doesn’t listen to directors and doesn’t care about your stunt or pyrotechnic and your CG or your green screen, just doesn’t give a shit about any of it. . . . We felt, as the writers, the fans need him.
We had to bite the bullet and have one fucking pain-in-the-ass episode to shoot with the dog, and then at the end the dog will return to the safe and comfortable place it’s been. But it does come out of retirement for one more mission with Butcher, and so we can at least put Butcher with Terror for one big episode.”The Boys are a clear and topical story of how, with skillful manipulation of information, you can make even the most insensitive psychopath the hero of a nation. In addition, at the same time – this is a story that even ordinary people like this group of several determined guys can resist large-scale evil. They understand that their task is extremely difficult since their opponents are treacherous superheroes. What will happen next in their fascinating story?
