The Boys Spin-Off Announced: Let's Go To Superhero College
Get ready for even more of The Boys, as there's a spin-off about superhero college in development. Yes, that's a thing.
Vought International is continuing its domination over Amazon's Prime Video streaming service. The second season of the comic book adaptation The Boys is currently airing weekly on Prime, while the series has already been renewed for a third season. What's more, The Boys even has its own aftershow. Now, the universe of the show is looking to expand even further.
According to a report from Variety, a spin-off of The Boys is in development. It's set at a college for young supes, which is run by the ominous Vought International--the evil corporation that controls The Seven. A description of the potential spin-off from Variety calls it "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. Part college show, part Hunger Games--with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys."
It essentially sounds like a dirty version of the antics at the Xavier school, as young supes learn to control their powers in a way only The Boys could portray.
The pilot is being written by The Boys writer and executive producer Craig Rosenberg, who would also serve as showrunner. The Boys' executive producers Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver will also serve as executive producers, alongside Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty.
There's no telling when fans of The Boys would actually see this series, should it move beyond development. Still, this makes it clear that Amazon sees plenty of stories left to tell when it comes to The Boys.
