The Boys season 2 has been arriving weekly on Amazon Prime but just what is the release time for season 2, episode 8?

The Boys completely turned the superhero genre on its head when it arrived on our screens in 2019 and quickly became a staple of Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service.

Now, The Boys is back for season 2 but the second instalment has abandoned the binge-friendly all-episodes-at-once release in favour of a weekly release schedule.

This new approach, which is mirrored by Disney+ and Apple TV+, has left fans eagerly anticipating each new episode and after episode 7 arrived on Amazon, fans have been chomping at the bit to see just what happens next.

But just when is the release time and date for The Boys season 2, episode 8 on Amazon Prime Video?
