Amazon Studios has confirmed a spin-off series from its subversive superhero drama The Boys.
The show, details of which emerged last year, is from Sony Pictures Television Studios – which is behind the original – and Amazon Studios, in association with Kripke Enterprises, Point Grey Pictures, and Original Film.
Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters attached as showrunners and executive producers, with Loreli Alanís serving as executive in charge for Point Grey Pictures.
The story will take place at a college exclusively for young-adult superheroes and is described as “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities.”
Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty, and Maddie Phillips are among cast.
“Much like Mork & Mindy spun-off from Happy Days – which is an insane and true fact – our spin-off will exist in the Vought Cinematic Universe, yet have a tone and style all its own,” said The Boys‘ showrunner and executive producer Eric Kripke
“It’s our take on a college show, with an ensemble of fascinating, complicated, and sometimes deadly Young Supes.”
The Boys launched on Prime Video in 2019 and is based on the 2006-2012 comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It follows a team of vigilantes as they combat super-powered individuals who abuse their abilities while hiding behind heroic personas.
The second season premiered on Prime Video in 2020 and a third recently wrapped production. The cast is headed by Karl Urban (Star Trek, The Lord Of The Rings), alongside Jack Quaid, Antony Starr and Erin Moriarty.
