Amazon’s The Boys returns on September 4 with weekly episodes


One of Amazon’s Prime video shows is finally about to resume, but you’ll have to be patient if you want to see it all. The service has revealed that the second season of The Boys will air on September 4, but only the first three episodes. The other five will arrive weekly. The show’s creators want viewers to “absorb” what is going on in the story, executive producer Eric Kripke said in a livestream (below). Of course, this also makes it difficult to rush through the show on a free trial – something that Disney + was very aware of when it launched The Mandalorian (and then ended the free trials).

As for what’s going on in season 2? The feed included the first three minutes of the first episode, so avoid the initial teaser clip if you want to avoid the spoilers. However, it is safe to say that there are many things to be settled after the end of the first season. The boys of the same name are trying to survive both the law and Vought’s most corrupt group of superheroes, while coping with the rise of super villains and the uncertainties around Butcher. The new season features social media superhero Stormfront (who can challenge Homelander’s leadership) and even includes a part for comedian Patton Oswalt.
