Note: Contains super spoilers for season one of The Boys.
It’s impossible to even think superhero fatigue is a thing after watching The Boys. Just a few minutes in, your eyes will open wide in shock and they’ll stay that way for the eight episodes that follow.
So it’s good news that The Boys has already been renewed for a second season. Announced by Amazon before the first season even aired, this sophomore effort will provide fans with even more opportunities to better understand The Seven while also diving deeper into the comic-book source material.
And Amazon’s commissioning confidence paid off: season one was a huge hit for the streaming service.
Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, said: “We are thrilled that The Boys have surpassed our predictions for viewing in its first two weeks, and has become one of our most watched Amazon Original series by our Prime Video customers.
“This creates great momentum and excitement for us as we get ready for season two.”
Seriously, do they have someone on staff with the superpower to predict popularity? That’d explain the early commission for season two. Or maybe they just knew what they had on their hands. Either way, they must be very happy that they’ll be able to capitalise on season one’s success as quickly as possible.
