If you’re looking to feast on a show with entertaining ultra-violence, the TV adaption of Garth Ennis’ comic book series is right up your alley. Creators Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen, and Eric Kripke brought Ennis’ panels to life, and judging by The Boys trailer, the show looks like a blast.

If you’re not familiar with the story, The Boys takes place in a world where corrupt superheroes abuse their powers and celebrity status, leading to the formation of a team of vigilantes to take them down. The small, clandestine squad is led by Billy Butcher, who is played by the always on-point Karl Urban, as the group is tasked with monitoring the superheroes. The trailer for the Amazon series promises buckets of gore and dark comedy similar to R-rated comic-book offerings like Kick-Ass and Deadpool. Joining Urban is Chace Crawford, Jennifer Esposito, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, and Karen Fukuhara. The first episode hits the small screen on July 26, 2019.
