Amazon Prime’s The Boys will return for its highly-anticipated second season on September 4.
The announcement was released during a The Boys F**kin’ Reunited streaming event, which included the entire cast and the three minutes of the first upcoming episode on Friday.
Creator and executive producer Eric Kripke also teased fans should prepare for an even ‘crazier, stranger, more intense, more emotional’ season in a statement to Deadline.
The superhero satire will premiere with the first three episodes and an additional one every Friday until the season finale on October 9.
We wanted to give you time to freak out, digest, discuss, come down from the high, before we give you another dose,’ Kripke explained of the show’s weekly schedule
He added: ‘We only have your well-being in mind. Hope you love the season as much as we do.’
The new season ‘finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought,’ per the official synopsis.
The Supes of The Seven include Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell).
Characters Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) are attempting to ‘adjust to a new normal,’ as Butcher (Karl Urban) appears to be gone.
Timeless’ Goran Visnjic will be joining as Alistair and actress Claudia Doumit, who will portray congresswoman Victoria Neuman, in the forthcoming episodes
The series initially debuted last July and is based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.
In November, Kripe confirmed the cast and crew wrapped filming for season two with a tweet saying he felt ‘exhausted but triumphant’ at ‘2:15am.’
