Time for the Supes to head to class. Amazon’s The Boys will get a college-based spinoff series.
The currently untitled series is set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (run by Vought International). It 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. (Amazon describes it as an irreverent, R-rated series, part college show and part Hunger Games.)
The show already added several cast members, including Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty, and Maddie Phillips. Expect additional cast announcements down the line. Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters will serve as showrunners and executive producers.
Eric Kripke, showrunner for The Boys, will also executive produce the spinoff. He described the new series as existing in the same universe, but with its own unique tone and style.
“Much like Mork & Mindy spun-off from Happy Days—which is an insane and true fact—our spinoff will exist in the Vought Cinematic Universe, yet have a tone and style all its own. It’s our take on a college show, with an ensemble of fascinating, complicated, and sometimes deadly Young Supes,” said Kripke. “Michele and Tara are stone-cold geniuses, we’re thrilled to have them steer this ship, and grateful to Sony and Amazon for the opportunity. We love this show and can’t wait for you to see it. Also, Baywatch Nights spun-off from Baywatch, and it had vampires. Vampires!”
The spinoff will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. The studio recently wrapped production on season 3 of The Boys, with its release date TBA.
