The Boys prove that viewers can’t get enough of superhero-themed television. The Amazon series, developed by Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, was renewed for Season 2 before the premiere in July 2019.
Amazon Studio’s gamble seems to have paid off as The Boys is reportedly one of the most popular original series on Amazon Prime.
According to Deadline, Nielsen estimates that 6 million watched the premiere episode, and up to 8 million viewers watched the eight-episode season in the first ten days after its premiere.
The Boys Season 1 has a fresh spin on the often-hackneyed plot of the superhero genre. The series explores The Seven, which are a corporate (Vought International) commissioned a team of superheroes, while The Boys are a vigilante group that takes on sinister or corrupt superpowered people.
Here is everything we know about The Boy Season 2.
