Amazon Sets ‘The Boys’ Season 2 Release Date For September

The new season will be released on a weekly basis, rather than all at once.

Amazon has finally revealed the premiere date for the second season of the streamer’s hit superhero series The Boys.

The new season will arrive on Amazon Prime on September 4. However, Amazon will only be releasing the first three episodes, with the remainder of the season set to drop weekly until the season finale on October 9.

“We wanted to give you time to freak out, digest, discuss, come down from the high, before we give you another dose,” executive producer Eric Kripke said in a statement. “We only have your well-being in mind. Hope you love the season as much as we do.”

The September 4 premiere date was officially announced earlier today during a virtual event for the show which featured the cast and Kripke, along with host Patton Oswalt, who has guest stars in the upcoming sophomore season.

The second season of Amazon’s The Boys will also introduce brand new characters from the comics, including a gender-swapped Stormfront played by Aya Cash, as well as Billy Butcher’s sidekick dog named Terror.

Here is the official synopsis for the second season:

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.
