Amazon has announced that the 2nd season of their sleeper hit original series ‘The Boys’ will premiere on September 4th. However, instead of getting all 8 episodes of the season at once, like with most of Amazon’s shows, only the first 3 episodes will be available at first. The remaining 5 episodes will be released one at a time, once a week, every Friday. If you’d prefer to wait for the entire season to be available at once, the season finale will be available on October 9th.
Amazon shared the first 3 minutes of the second season during a live stream with the cast, which can be found here at the 47:35 mark. Here is the synopsis of 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.
