Animated The Boys spinoff set at Amazon
Each of Diabolical's eight episodes will be written by a different Hollywood name.
Amazon Prime has ordered an animated spinoff to its acclaimed superhero satire The Boys.
The streaming platform has released a video featuring Karl Urban, who plays squad leader Billy Butcher in the original show, announcing the project which is titled Diabolical.
Set to premiere sometime in 2022, it’s set to consist of eight episodes all of which will be set in the same universe as The Boys.
Each episode will be written by a different guest including Garth Ennis (the author of the comic on which The Boys is based), Andy Samberg, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, Awkwafina and Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland.
“Surprise! We’re almost finished with eight episodes of our animated series Diabolical” said The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke.
“We gathered together some incredible creators and we gave them one rule… just kidding, there’s no rules. They blew the doors off it, delivering eight completely unexpected, funny, shocking, gory, moist, emotional episodes. You think The Boys is nuts? Wait till you see this.”
Diabolical is the second The Boys spinoff greenlit by Amazon following the currently untitled young adult series which will be set at the world’s first university for superheroes.
Both seasons of The Boys are available to stream on Amazon Prime now.
