Amazon will be bringing The Boys back for a (presumably) bloody third season. It was announced at the show’s panel during [email protected] late last week that Amazon Prime has renewed the comic book adaptation for a third season. The announcement comes well before the season two premiere on September 4th, following a similar early pattern that saw the second season ordered before the first season had premiered.

In addition, it was announced that Archer and Whose Line Is It Anyway?’s Aisha Tyler will be hosting a weekly after-show for season two titled Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. The after-show premieres on August 28th before the season two premiere. The second season starts with three episodes and then will see a new episode released every Friday until October 9th.

Showrunner Eric Kripke said in a statement:

“Amazon, in a bold and historic push to expand their ‘weirdo’ demographic, has greenlit Season 3 of The Boys! The writers and I are hard at work in the (virtual) writer’s room, and we’re sad to say, the world has given us way too much material. We hope to be shooting in early 2021, but that’s up to a microscopic virus.

“As if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing you a Season 2 aftershow, Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. Double entendre intended. Hosted by the incomparable Aisha Tyler and guest-starring the cast and crew, it’s a deep dive into how we make this insane thing. Seriously, thanks to [production studio] Sony, Amazon and the fans. We love making this show so much, and we’re thrilled we get to make more.”

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 (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.
