Amazon’s ‘The Boys’ is Getting a Spinoff Series

September 29, 2021 | Benjamin Carpenter

On the heels of The Boys wrapping production on season 3, Amazon has officially greenlit a spinoff series to their critically acclaimed superhero drama. The untitled series will be set in the same world as The Boys but will focus on a college for young-adult heroes similar to My Hero Academia.

Young heroes will be at the forefront of this series as we explore how the “hormonal, competitive Supes put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities.”

The spinoff will be rated R and will have all of the satire, heart, and raunchiness The Boys does. Amazon describes the spinoff as being a mix of a college show with The Hunger Games.

The cast for the young heroes show currently includes Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty, and Maddie Phillips with additional cast members to be announced in the future.

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, who both worked on Agent Carter and Emergence as producers, join The Boys universe as showrunners and executive producers of this spinoff series. Also attached as executive producers are Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Pavun Shetty, Ken Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, and Michaela Starr.

According to executive producer Eric Kripke, the spinoff series is set in the same world as The Boys but will have a tone and style of its own.

“It’s our take on a college show, with an ensemble of fascinating, complicated, and sometimes deadly Young Supes”. – Eric Kripke

There are no scheduled dates of any kind for this spinoff series but it will be released exclusively to Amazon Prime.
