Amazon’s ‘The Boys’ Gets An Official Spinoff Series
An official spinoff series to Amazon’s The Boys has been given the green light.
According to Deadline, Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters will act as showrunners for the new show.
Described as an R-rated series based around a ‘superhero college’, the story will allegedly explore the lives of young, hormonal superheroes, as they compete for the best contracts in the best cities.
The cast for the spinoff was announced prior to the green-light and will consist of; Jaz Sinclair, Lizzie Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty, and Maddie Phillips.
“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 executive producer, Eric 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.” He added, “Also Baywatch Nights spun-off from Baywatch, and it had vampires. Vampires!”
The Boys achieved critical success upon its premiere on Amazon Prime and retains a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In 2020 the series received its first Emmy nomination and collected four Critics Choice Awards. A third season of the show is currently on the way, with production having wrapped in September.
