While many are currently watching The Boys Season 4, for those catching on on the Amazon Studios series, here's the cast and characters who show up for the show's Season 2.

The second season picks up moments after Season 1 ends when Butcher learns that Becca is alive, and she even has a son–Homelander's flesh and blood. To make matters worse, Homelander is on the hunt for Translucent's killers, there's a new head-popping villain in town, and Kimiko has a not-so-smooth family reunion.

These are all the talented cast and characters who appear throughout The Boys Season 2.

Antony Starr - Homelander

The narcissistic, psychopathic Compound-V-fueled Supe, Homelander, is adored by fans around the world—but those who actually know him are terrified of the man.

Following the public announcement of Translucent's death, he tells the world that he's committed to finding who killed him. At the same time, Homelander finds himself constantly preoccupied with the existence of Becca and his child.

One of fan's favorites performances from Starr, outside of Homelander, was as Lucas Hood in Banshee.

Karl Urban - Butcher

Butcher was ready to sacrifice his life at the end of Season 1, but Homelander had other plans. Instead of letting his enemy die, he saves Karl Urban's character only to reveal to him that Becca is alive with Homelander's child.

Now, Butcher is desperate to find out where Becca is living.

Urban is known for his time as Eomer in The Lord of the Rings, Bones in Star Trek, and Judge Dredd himself.

Jack Quaid - Hughie Campbell

The show started with Jack Quaid's Hughie Campbell getting a harsh reality check thanks to A-Train's instantaneous and accidental murder of his girlfriend. Now, things aren't getting any easier as he finds himself deeper and deeper in the fight against Vought.

At the very least, he has his relationship with Starlight, which continues to grow and develop in Season 2.

While Quiad's character may not like superheroes in The Boys, the actor himself voices Superman in My Adventures with Superman.

Laz Alonso - Mother's Milk

Laz Alonso is Mother's Milk, also known as MM. He's a key member of The Boys dedicated to the fight against Vought.

MM's actions come at a cost, however, as his involvement with the group puts a huge rift between him and his family.

Fans can see more of Alonso's work in My Dad the Bounty Hunter, Power Book II: Ghost, and L.A.'s Finest.

Tomer Capone - Frenchie

Karen Fukuhara - Kimiko Miyashiro

Some of Fukuhara's recent work includes Pokemon Concierge, The Boy and the Heron, and Craig of the Creek.

Jessie T. Usher - A-Train

After nearly dying at the end of Season 1, Jessie T. Usher's A-Train lives to run another, although his heart might have something to say about that.

The actor also played parts in Survivor's Remorse, Independence Day: Resurgence, and Smile.

Chace Crawford - The Deep

Chace Crawford’s The Deep is having a rough go of it as Season 2 picks up, with the former member of The Seven being in a low place trying to cope with his forced sabbatical. As he falls even further, he comes in contact with people who offer him help to rebuild his reputation back to what it was before.

Many fans will know Crawford’s fan-favorite role in Gossip Girl as Nate Archibald. He’s also been in Inheritance, Nighthawks, and What to Expect When You’re Expecting.

The Deep is far different from Crawford’s iconic role as Nate Archibald in over 100 episodes of Gossip Girl.

Next, Moriarty can be seen in the upcoming projects The Haunting in Wicker Park and Lips Like Sugar.

Aya Cash - Stormfront

VanSanten also stars in both For All Mankind and FBI: Most Wanted.

Dan Mousseau - Web Weaver

Dan Mousseau as Web Weaver in The Boys Season 2

The Boys’s take on Spider-Man comes in the form of Web Weaver, played by Dan Mousseau, and he’s quite disgusting. Like an actual arachnid, he spins webs out of a second asshole.

While Robins’ Mallory also briefly appeared in Gen V, she can be seen outside of The Boys universe in Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Eye in the Sky, and American Horror Stories.

Nicola Correia-Damude - Elena

Abraham Lim - Kenji Miyashiro

Abraham Lim’s Kenji Miyashiro is Kimiko’s brother, still with the terrorist organization Shining Light. While the team tries to get through to him, it doesn’t look like he’ll do the right thing and work with The Boys.

John Doman - Jonah Vogelbaum

Season 2 confirms that there’s a reason Billy Butcher is the piece of work he is, and it’s all thanks to his abusive and terrible childhood under his father, Sam Butcher, played by John Noble.

Now suffering through cancer, somehow Sam still feels no regret for how he treated his children–one of whom committed suicide.

Noble is well known for his roles in the Lord of the Rings movies and the sci-fi Fringe. He can be seen in Severance’s upcoming Season 2 and voices Odin in Netflix’s Twilight of the Gods.

Lesley Nicol - Connie Butcher

Lesley Nicol as Connie Butcher in The Boys Season 2

Lesley Nicol’s Connie Butcher is the opposite of Butcher’s father, aka a loving and supportive mother. While Sam is proud of who Butcher has become, Connie is not.
