The news comes as season 3 of The Boys has completed production
The Boys became a popular show with the fans since its release and even went on to and earned an Emmy nomination in 2021 for Outstanding Drama Series. The latest is that Amazon Studios have greenlit a spinoff series of the acclaimed superhero drama.
The untitled project will follow young/adult students at a college exclusively for people with superhero powers, run by Vought International.
The show will primarily focus on the lives of these students as they "put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities."
The cast for the show that explores the lives of the young supes include Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty, and Maddie Phillips.
Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters are the new showrunners for the upcoming show with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Pavun Shetty, Ken Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, and Michaela Starr serving as executive producers.
While there are reports of the show resembling the Hunger Games existing in The Boys’ universe, fans can expect a lot of gore and violence in the new spinoff as well.
Meanwhile, the third season of The Boys has finished filming and is expected to release sometime in 2022. An official premiere date is yet to be unveiled.
Season 3 could set up the groundwork for the spinoff series. There is no release date for the spinoff series either, but it will be releasing on Amazon Prime Video.
