The Boys season 2 has well and truly exploded into life in recent weeks but will there be an episode 9 and how many episodes are there in total?
When The Boys arrived on Amazon Prime Video in 2019, it completely turned the superhero genre on its head.
The show, which instantly became one of Amazon’s staple series, is a far cry from Marvel’s PG-13 Cinematic Universe as each episode is filled with plenty of grit, gore and scenes that little Timmy really shouldn’t be watching.
The same can definitely be said for season 2 which arrived on Amazon Prime Video on September 4th.
One new episode has arrived weekly ever since but some fans have been left wondering if The Boys season 2 will return for episode 9 and just how many episodes are in total.
The Boys season 2 episode 8
Episode 8 was easily the most dramatic of The Boys season 2.
After the horrific attack on the Vought hearing in episode 7, we finally learn who the assailant was behind the exploding heads in season 2.
Meanwhile, The Boys finally face off against the sinister Stormfront, a titanic battle that ends with horrific consequences.
Will there be an episode 9? How many episodes are there in total?
- No, there will not be an episode 9 of The Boys season 2.
This is because season 2 of The Boys contains a total of eight episodes, which is the same amount as season 1.
After season 2 began airing on September 4th, new episodes have released each Friday with the eighth and final episode arriving on October 9th.
The Boys Season 3
While there may be no episode 9 in season 2, The Boys has already been renewed for season 3.
The announcement of The Boys season 3 was made in July 2020, two months before season 2 was even due to air.
Ordinarily, we would expect to see The Boys season 3 at some point in 2021 but given the delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, there is every chance The Boys season 3 will arrive later than planned.
Until then, The Boys season 2 is available to stream now in-full on Amazon Prime Video after episode 8 released on October 9th, 2020.
