You guys are the real heroes.

Get ready for more Vought International antics! Deadline reports that Amazon Studios has formally greenlit The Boys YA spinoff series and cemented its showrunners!

According to the official press release, the “Untitled The Boys Spinoff” takes place at a college in America run by Vought International for young adult superheroes. “It’s 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. It’s part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.”

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters will serve as showrunners while Jaz SinclairLizze BroadwayMaddie PhillipsAimee CarreroShane Paul McGhie and Reina Hardesty will star, with the additional cast to be revealed at a later date. 

Eric Kripke, showrunner and executive producer of The Boys, had this to say regarding the spinoff: 

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.

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 Boys recently wrapped production for Season Three, and a premiere date will be announced soon. 

As long as Amazon doesn’t beat this horse to a pulp long after its dead, I’m excited about any and all The Boys content. I think maintaining the parent show’s uniquely macabre and darkly humorous tone is paramount for its success.
