Shawn Ashmore offers first look at The Boys’ Lamplighter
Shawn Ashmore (The Following, The Rookie) has taken to Twitter to share the first look at his iteration of notorious former member of The Seven Lamplighter in the upcoming second season of Amazon’s adaptation of The Boys. Check out the mysterious new teaser image below!
The Boys is an 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. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.” The show retains most of the comics (available for purchase here) boundary-pushing violence and sexuality while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame.
The series was created by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, who are responsible for another subversive comic book-inspired series, AMC’s Preacher, and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke.
Season 1 is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video, with season 2 set to premiere on September 4.
