The Boys season 2 has arrived on Amazon Prime Video but when is episode 6 released and how many episodes are there in total?

When The Boys arrived on Amazon Prime Video in July 2019, it completely turned the superhero genre on its head.

The super-powered Seven, the series’ Avengers-esque superhero team, are world-famous but are being run for profit by the Vought International corporation and members of the group have grown arrogant and corrupt in the years they’ve been active.

Billy Butcher and his team, the titular Boys, are filled with distrust of the so-called heroes and do all they can to bring the Seven down to size.

After the dramatic events of season 1, a second instalment was quickly ordered up by Amazon and on September 4th, 2020, season 2 finally arrived.

However, only five episodes have been released so far, leaving many fans asking when episode 6 of The Boys season 2 will release on Amazon.

Season 2 of The Boys began releasing on Amazon Prime Video on September 4th.

The new instalment continues the story of Billy Butcher and the Boys as their conflict with the Seven and Vought International cranks up a few more notches.

Season 1 ended on the dramatic revelation that Billy’s wife, Becca, who he thought had died at the hands of Homelander, the leader of the Seven, was actually alive and well and has been secretly raising her and Homelander’s son.

When is episode 6 released?

  • Episode 6 will arrive on Amazon on Friday, September 24th.

Amazon are clearly taking a leaf out of Disney+ and Apple TV’s book in releasing a few episodes to start off with before new episodes start arriving weekly.

After episodes 1-3 launched on September 4th, the rest of season 2 is due to arrive weekly with one new episode landing each Friday at midnight.

How many episodes are in season 2 in total?

Just like season 1, The Boys season 2 will contain a total of eight episodes.

That means that after episodes 1-3 released on September 4th, the season will run until October 9th with one new episode hitting the streaming service each Friday.

It’s disappointing that we can’t binge our way through the whole season but a weekly instalment of The Boys will undoubtedly make for a great Friday treat.

The Boys season 2 is available to stream now on Amazon Prime Video.
