The Boys are set to return to Amazon Prime later this year, with a “crazier, stranger, more intense, and more emotional” season two. The dates were announced during a virtual reunion hosted by Patton Oswalt.

Creator and executive producer Eric Kripke joked that the surgeon general insisted the first three episodes air together on September 4. New episodes will be available on a weekly basis. “We wanted to give you time to freak out, digest, discuss, come down from the high, before we give you another dose. We only have your well-being in mind. Hope you love the season as much as we do,” Kripke said.

Based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys is a group of vigilantes out to expose truth about superheroes, The Seven and their management Vought. Season one ended with a massive twist involving The Boys leader Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), superhero Homelander (Antony Starr) and Butcher’s not-so-dead wife.
