The Boys, Amazon’s rowdy comic adaptation about a world where superheroes are secretly awful people, has surprise-dropped the first three episodes of Season 2. The season was set to drop on September 4, but these episodes have released a day early.
Amazon Prime subscribers can start watching right now. The show will drop weekly going forward, but you can binge through the first three episodes, at least.
The show, which stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriaty, and Antony Starr, was critically acclaimed in its first season. That’s also the case with Season 2, with GameSpot’s review of the first three episodes heaping praise upon the show’s return.
“The Boys is a series about the people in power doing anything they can to keep that power–and Butcher and the Boys remain the only crew who can stick it to them,” wrote reviewer Michael Rogueau. “If the rest of Season 2 stays on the same path as the first three episodes, it’s going to prove the perfect commentary for the tense times in which we live.”
It’s been a while since Season 1, of course–if you need a reminder of what happened, GameSpot’s got you covered.
