THE enduring appeal of superhero films and TV series is going strong in 2019, and one of the latest entrants to the genre is an Amazon Original, The Boys.
If you want to find out how to stream the first season of this dark comedy absolutely free, you can do just that with a 30-day trial of Amazon Prime.
The Boys is based on a comic book of the same name and was released in July 2019 exclusively on Amazon Prime.
Starring the likes of Karl Urban, Ann Moriarty, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott and Simon Pegg, the show isn’t lacking star power.

And it’s been a hit with reviewers and viewers alike, collecting a fan rating of 9.1 on IMDB.
On July 26, all eight episodes of the first season were released onto Amazon Prime, so with a free 30-day trial you can stream all available episodes of the show right now.
Each episode lasts an hour, so there’s plenty of time to binge all eight of them in 30 days.
And, obviously, if you already subscribe to Prime, you can watch the show for free as part of your membership.
Although, be warned, The Boys is not for the faint-hearted.
The show has been slapped with an 18 certificate and from the very first episode it’s easy to see why, with violence, gore and nudity all on the table.
Who is in the cast of The Boys?
Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Elisabeth Shue and Laz Alonso feature in every episode of the first season.
