The third season of filming has recently wrapped on Amazon’s Emmy-nominated hit superhero series, The Boys, and now the much-anticipated spin-off series set in the named Vought Cinematic Universe has been officially confirmed.
Referred to as Untitled The Boys Spinoff (for now), the series will take place in a college campus setting that is not only run by the mega-corporation Vought International (who are already in charge of all the “Supes”) but made exclusively for young adult superheroes.
The announced cast of young “Supes” so far includes Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty, and Maddie Phillips, with more to be announced at a later time. The showrunners were announced as Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, known for their work on the Marvel/ABC TV Show Agent Carter that starred Hayley Atwell.
When will class go into session? That remains to be seen, but the stakes from the main show are still present as these young Supes will be fighting for the top spot to secure the most lucrative contracts in select cities. Pairing the intensity of being a superhero with the pressures of college will certainly be an interesting dynamic for this comic-book-inspired world.
In an official press release, they describe it as:
“It’s part college show, part Hunger Games—with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.”
To be noted, 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 all will be involved as executive producers for the new show.
Eric Kripke said in regards to the addition of the spinoff series and its newly created VCU.
“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.”
As for now, we await a release date for the sure-to-be “must watch” third season of The Boys and news of a potential season 4. A few juicy rumors and other details have come out about the third season, but not much officially so far. Back in June, we were treated to a first official image as they announced that the season will introduce Jensen Ackles (from the popular long-running CW series, Supernatural) as Soldier Boy.
