The Boys Season 2 Is Not Three Episodes Long

The Boys have made their triumphant return to Amazon, but their Season 2 arrival is stirring up some confusion among loyal followers. When Prime Video released the second season of the long-awaited action series today, it looked a little different from last season — and fans were not pleased. While Season 1 of The Boys dropped in full last July, Prime Video teased us with a new release format this time around.

Viewers anticipating a weekend spent binging The Boys were in for a shock when only three of the Season 2 episodes debuted today. Blame streaming platforms, but we’re all conditioned to expect a complete release when shows premiere new seasons. So, fans immediately suspected the worst: that The Boys Season 2 was only three episodes long, sparking plenty of outcry on Twitter over such a short, incomplete season.

Thankfully, all of the panic was for nothing. Season 2 of The Boys is not only three episodes long, so don’t start boycotting Prime Video just yet. Amazon rolled out three episodes to kickstart the second season, but from here on out, new episodes will debut on Prime Video each week. So, the next time you’ll get a new episode of The Boys after the first three is on Sept. 11, next Friday.

While it may seem like a small morsel of Season 2, Prime Video gave fans nearly half of the new episodes today. The Boys new season is only eight episodes long, with the final episode set to debut in early October. Here’s the full weekly schedule:

  • The Boys Episode 4: September 11
  • The Boys Episode 5: September 18
  • The Boys Episode 6: September 25
  • The Boys Episode 7: October 2
  • The Boys Episode 8: October 9

Sure, fans are right to be frustrated or surprised that The Boys won’t roll out Season 2 in its entirety today, but weekly releases aren’t all bad. For one, it’s easier to avoid spoilers since we’re all watching on the same schedule. But even better, Prime Video could be doing us a favor by making Season 2 last much longer than if we were to gobble it all up in one weekend binge.
