The Boys spinoff series in the works
It will follow young superheroes at the evil Vought International's University.
A spinoff series to hit superhero satire The Boys is in the works at Amazon.
The currently untitled series will be set at an exclusive university run by Vought International which follows “the lives of hormonal, competitive young Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities.”
It’s been described as “Part college show, part Hunger Games - with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys.”
Craig Rosenberg, who acts as an executive producer on the original show, will serve as showrunner and write the pilot episode.
This series has reportedly been in development for quite a while but has now been fast-tracked due to the massive success of the The Boys season 2.
According to the tech giant, it had the most watched global debut for an Amazon original ever and has seen a huge 89% increase on the viewership from season one.
The Boys, which is adapted from the best-selling comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, follows the titular vigilante team as they attempt to bring down a group of corrupt superheroes known as The Seven.
It stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Chace Crawford, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara and Aya Cash.
You can enjoy new episodes of The Boys every Friday until 9th October on Amazon Prime.
