Creator and executive producer Eric Kripke joked: “We cannot wait to show you season two.
“It’s crazier, stranger, more intense, more emotional. In fact, it’s too much — so the Surgeon General has insisted we air the first three episodes on September 4, then air the remaining five episodes weekly after that.
“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.”
To watch The Boys, you can sign up to a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime.
After the trial is complete, you can subscribe to the streaming platform from £7.99 per month.
The entire first season of The Boys is streaming on Amazon Prime now.
What will happen in The Boys season 2?
The Boys on Amazon Prime Video is based on the best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.
However, the series is only loosely based on the original comics and has diverted significantly from the original source material, so really in season two, anything could happen.
The synopsis for season two reads: “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 (played by 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 centre stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.”
