Amazon has renewed The Boys for a third season ahead of the second season’s premiere date.
When the first season of The Boys released on Amazon Prime Video it blew everyone away. The series was full of dark, complex, three-dimensional characters and subverted the entire superhero genre in a way that was potent but still fun thanks to a great but graphic sense of humor. Now Amazon seems to think that this will continue on into the second season as it has already renewed the show for a third ahead of the premiere date.
The upcoming season of The Boys is set to premiere on September 4th of this year. Unlike many other streaming shows, all of the episodes will not be available at its premiere with each episode airing weekly with the season finale releasing on October 9th. It is very possible that the third season will follow in suit.

Here is the official synopsis for the second season of The Boys:
The even more intense, more insane season two finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
The Boys stars Karl Urban Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Kapon, Karen Fukuhara, and Nathan Mitchell. So far, the series has added Goran Visnjic and Claudia Doumit for season two.
The second season of The Boys will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 4th. Stay tuned for all the latest news on The Boys and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
