Things are about to get more diabolical as a spinoff series featuring young c*nts from a supe college is set in The Boys universe.
The spin-off series is written by The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg, had been in the works for a while. It is being fast-tracked in light of the success of The Boys second season which marked the most-watched global launch of an Amazon Original series ever.
According to Amazon, The Boys’ first season had set a high viewership mark for Amazon when it debuted in the summer of 2019. In its first two weeks, Season 2 has nearly doubled the Season 1 worldwide audience (+89%), drawing millions of new viewers each week.
The spinoff is set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult supes that is run by Vought International. The Untitled Boys Spinoff 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. Part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire, and raunch of “The Boys.”
"THAT'S RIGHT, MOTHERFUCKERS. The Boys is getting a spinoff," said showrunner Eric Kripke. "Seriously, I'm so grateful to you all for making The Boys such a huge success. I'm having the time of my life, so I can't thank you enough. Much, MUCH more to come!"
"The Vaught Cinematic Universe is expanding," said executive producer Seth Rogen.
Reportedly Billy Butcher is also excited to hunt some college c*nts as he is getting more out of his supe-screwed life (no confirmation of Billy Butcher to appear in the show).
The spinoff is from the entities behind the original series — Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television in association with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises, and Original Film.
Craig Rosenberg is writing the pilot and will serve as executive producer/showrunner on the spinoff under his overall deal with Sony Pictures TV. The Boys developer/executive producer Eric Kripke and fellow The Boys EPs, Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver; and Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavan Shetty, also executive produce.
The second season of The Boys sees the boys on the run and hunted by the supes. Stormfront (Aya Cash), has joined the team of supes and is posing a challenge and increasing the insecurity of Homelander. October 9 will mark the season 2 finale.
