The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke has shared a new look at Billy Butcher and Homelander in season 2 of the hit Amazon series.

Posting to Twitter on Sunday (March 22), Supernatural creator Kripke shared a sneak peek of characters including Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and Homelander (Antony Starr) as he confirmed he was "hard at work" on the new episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Raging case of Apocalypse Anxiety?" Eric wrote in his update. "There's a cure! Watch The Boys on [Amazon Prime Video]!"

He continued: "See the show reviewers call 'blasphemous' & 'a sick work of perversion'. And I'm hard at work (remotely) on season 2. Here's a few shots!"

Kripke accompanied his tweet with two photos taken of his computer screen as he worked on the new season, each of which features an extreme close-up of Homelander, the leader of The Seven, and Billy Butcher, the leader of The Boys, respectively.

Of course, the photos don't give away anything about the plot of season 2, nor what the characters are up to in either of the scenes, but we'll take what we can get.

Kripke's post follows a first look at a brand new The Boys superhero, with the show set to introduce a new character called Stormfront, played by You're the Worst star Aya Cash, as the newest member of The Seven.

"She's the grenade that gets thrown into Homelander's world and the world of the Seven," Homelander actor Antony Starr teased previously to Entertainment Weekly.

"She really causes me so many problems."

The Boys follows a group of vigilantes as they attempt to take down corrupt superheroes who abuse their superpowers.

Based on a set of graphic novels by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, the series proved hugely successful when it debuted last year.

But what can fans expect from season 2, you ask? Here's everything we know about it so far.

The Boys season 1 is available to stream on on Amazon Prime Video.
