Amazon announced today that The Boys has been picked up for a third season. The good news was delivered at the superhero drama's Comic-Con@Home panel, coming almost exactly a year after its freshman run. Season 2 is set to air on September 4.

Based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, the series is set in a world where powerful and revered superheroes abuse their powers instead of using them for good. To combat this, a superpowered CIA squad is tasked with monitoring the community and exposing the truth about The Seven, and Vought – the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes and covers up all of their dirty secrets.

No timeframe for Season 3's release has been announced, but a mid-to-late 2021 return appears likely.
