According to the trade the project has been in tin development for some time but has been fast tracked following strong performance for the show’s second season which rolls out new episodes Friday’s.
The untitled spinoff, written by The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg, is set at America’s only college exclusively for young superheroes — which is run by the shady corporation Vought International. Like the parent show, the spinoff is expected to be a very TV-MA series — described as part college show and part Hunger Games — that follows 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.
The spinoff comes from Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television in association with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film. Rosenberg, who has an overall deal at Sony, will executive produce with The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke; Point Grey’s Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver; and Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty. Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, creators of The Boys comic series, are also exec producing, as are Ken Levin and Jason Netter.
The Boys season 2 stars Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as the Female, Erin Moriarty as Annie January, Chace Crawford as the Deep, Antony Starr as Homelander and Aya Cash as Stormfront. New episodes of season 2 stream Fridays on Amazon Prime Video.
