The Boys one of Prime Video’s most watched series ever

August 9, 2019

Amazon Prime Video has announced that its irreverent new superhero drama, The Boys, from executive producers Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, has become one of its most watched series ever, after just two weeks on Prime Video.

The series also became one of the most binged series of 2019 with Prime Video customers. The Boys, which has been called “the best superhero show on TV and it’s not particularly close” (by Forbes) was recently greenlit for a season two and production has begun.

“We are thrilled that The Boys have surpassed our predictions for viewing in its first two weeks, and has become one of our most watched Amazon Original series by our Prime Video customers,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “This creates great momentum and excitement for us as we get ready for season two.”

“I’m so beyond thrilled with the response to season one, and mainly it’s made me get my ass in gear and work even harder on season two,” said executive producer Eric Kripke. “I don’t want season two to go bigger, I want it to go deeper. A more intense, more insane, more wrenching, more character-driven season. It’s my one and only goal to make season two even better than season one.”
