The Boys season 2 has well and truly exploded into life but when is episode 8 released 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.

But after the mind-blowing events of episode 7, fans have been left wondering when The Boys season 2, episode 8 will release on Amazon Prime Video and how many episodes there will be in total.

The Boys season 2 episode 7

Episode 7 in The Boys season 2 centres around the hearing against Vought which is set up by Congresswoman Victoria Neuman.

While Hughie and Lamplighter work to save Annie from Vought after she’s revealed to be a traitor, Billy and The Boys look to strongarm former Vought scientist, Jonah Vogelbaum, into testifying against the corporation at the hearing.

However, before the former Vought CSO can give his opening statement, the proverbial well and truly hits the fan.

When is episode 8 released?

  • Episode 8 of The Boys season 2 will arrive on Amazon on Friday, October 9th.

With The Boys season 2, Amazon is 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 has been arriving weekly with one new episode landing each Friday at midnight local time.

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.

After the mind-blowing cliffhanger at the end of episode 7, The Boys fans will no doubt be wishing that the next seven days fly by to see how season 2 ends.

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