The world of the Supes is getting bigger. According to Variety, Amazon is “fast-tracking” a spinoff of The Boys, banking on the massive popularity of Prime Video’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s series published by Dynamite. With Season 2 about halfway through and Season 3 already announced, it is no surprise the streaming service is ready to give its audience more diabolical fun.
The newly announced series will be set in an exclusive college for young supes, naturally run by Vought International. Expect the R-rated sex, violence, and questionable morals that you know and love from the same universe that brought you Butcher (Karl Urban), his team, and the powered individuals hopped up on Compound V.
Craig Rosenberg is slated to write the pilot and will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Eric Kripke will also executive produce along with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver of Point Grey Pictures. Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty will also be executive producers on the spinoff produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television.
Stay tuned for updates on the show. Season 2 is currently on Prime Video, and check out Prime Rewind: Inside the Boys, the aftershow chat hosted by Aisha Tyler.
