The Boys showrunner reveals the scene that was too explicit for Amazon
Amazon’s new superhero series The Boys certainly doesn’t hold back when it comes to gratuitous sex and violence, but it seems the streaming service did lay down some boundaries, with showrunner Erik Kripke revealing on Reddit that one particular scene left Amazon executives screaming “fuck no” and ultimately ended up on the cutting room floor.
