The gritty superhero series' pickup for a third season comes more than a month before Season 2 premieres on Sept. 4. Amazon also announced that Tyler will host the weekly aftershow Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys, premiering Aug. 28 with a look back at The Boys' Season 1. “Amazon, in a bold and historic push to expand their ‘weirdo’ demographic, has greenlit Season 3 of The Boys! The writers and I are hard at work in the (virtual) writer’s room, and we’re sad to say, the world has given us way too much material,” showrunner Eric Kripke said in a statement. “We hope to be shooting in early 2021, but that’s up to a microscopic virus. As if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing you a Season 2 aftershow, Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. Double entendre intended. Hosted by the incomparable Aisha Tyler and guest-starring the cast and crew, it’s a deep dive into how we make this insane thing. Seriously, thanks to (production studio) Sony, Amazon and the fans. We love making this show so much, and we’re thrilled we get to make more.” ALSO: The Boys revealed a gory Season 2 clip at Comic-Con@Home panel.
