The Boys

“You’re The Worst” star Aya Cash is in talks to join a second season of Amazon’s superhero drama series “The Boys” in the gender-swapped key role of Stormfront. No official decision has been made on a second season as yet, but it seems things are being lined up for the possibility.

The story is set in a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame. It revolves around a group of vigilantes who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty. In the comics, Stormfront is a Thor/Shazam amalgamation – incredibly powered but also an unrepentant bigot.
