Amazon Prime Video knows that we can't do without our boys. On July 23 (well ahead of the Sept. 4 release of The Boys' second instalment), the streamer announced the season three renewal during the show's ComicCon@Home panel. Creator and showrunner Eric Kripke revealed that the show's writers are already working on season three virtually, saying, "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."
No, we don't have a release date for season three yet, but to sweeten the pot, the streamer also revealed that season two will introduce an after-show with host Aisha Tyler. Entitled Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys, the show will dive deep into the stories behind the series and feature interviews with members of the cast, creative team, and other special guests.
"The Boys is one of the smartest, most irreverent, unapologetically badass shows streaming," Tyler said in a statement. "I became a fan during season one, and this season I'm stoked to be flying fans into the heart of the show as host of Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. Season two is bigger, badder, and more audacious than ever before, so join me after every episode as we dig through the rubble pile of our feelings. I promise, we'll get through it like The Boys — dysfunctional, but together."
Kripke will return as showrunner, writer, and executive producer for season three, alongside Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg as executive producers. Season three will feature eight episodes just like its predecessors, and hopefully, premiere by late 2021.
