Los Angeles, Apr 6 (PTI) “Star Trek” actor Karl Urban is returning to the small screen with Amazon Studios’ superhero drama series “The Boys”.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “The Boys” takes places in a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, and centers on a group of vigilantes known informally as “the boys” who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.

Urban will play Billy Butcher, who is described as mysterious and brutal with a personal but secret agenda.

“Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke will serve as creator and showrunner on “The Boys”, which will be directed by Seth Rogen and his longtime producing partner Evan Goldberg.
