Amazon has now confirmed that the second season of The Boys will debut on September 4, 2020 - on this day they'll unload 3 new episodes to get you hooked. But with so many new streaming services jumping into the fray- and breaking from this standard and airing its shows one episode-per-week, like regular TV- it looks as though Prime Video is going to shift its release format to something in between. Check out the announcement tweet here...
The Boys was one of Amazon's most popular releases ever when it debuted previous year, and this follow-up season was widely expected to release this summer.
This time around, though, they're on the run from the law, as well as being hunted by the Supes and fighting back against Vought.
Characters Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) are attempting to 'adjust to a new normal, ' as Butcher (Karl Urban) appears to be gone.
Most notably, as power-hungry Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control.
However, Homelander's plan will be challenged by a new social media-savvy Supe named Stormfront, played by Aya Cash, who has her own agenda. With the threat of new supervillains, which were caused when Homelander gave the Compound V to worldwide terrorists, Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation's growing paranoia. Before that bums you out too hard, the first three episodes will premiere on September 4.
Teasing: Creator and executive producer Eric Kripke also teased fans should prepare for an even "crazier, stranger, more intense, more emotional" season in a statement to Deadline.
"We can not WAIT to show you season two". We only have your well-being in mind. According to the comics upon which the series is based, Stormfront was raised as a supporter of Hitler and the Third Reich, and was one of the first people to successfully be administered Compound V, a substance created by Jonah Vogelbaum, a Jewish scientist, and was originally meant to create super soldiers for the Third Reich. Vought being Vought will attempt to take advantage of this paranoia and continue to grow their influence. So far, the series has added Goran Visnjic and Claudia Doumit for season two.
The Boys quickly became one of the most successful Amazon Original Series on the platform, shortly after the release of Season 1.
