Along with the new teaser and The Boys Season 3 premiere date announcement, which will see the Prime Video adaptation returning on June 3, 2022, more details about the upcoming spin-off have been revealed.
At the beginning of the latest episode of the Vought News Network’s Seven on 7 web series, which includes a brief interview with Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), the anchor Cameron Coleman (Matthew Edison) teases the college-set spin-off:
“In just a few short months, the best and brightest young heroes from Godolkin University will see their dreams come true or come crashing down – as everything they’ve been training for over the past four years all comes down to this. It’s all on the line for these collegiate heroes, as lucrative contracts to defend America’s greatest cities are all up for grabs … And while this year’s competition is sure to be intense, people can’t stop talking about Godolkin University junior Golden Boy, already seen as the top pick for next year’s draft. America’s future has never been brighter, and I for one can’t wait to see what’s in store for this new generation of heroes.”
Previously, The Boys showunner Eric Kripke commented on the spin-off — which will be showun by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters — saying: “Much like Mork & Mindy spun-off from Happy Days — which is an insane and true fact — our spin-off 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!”
Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty, and Maddie Phillips will play young superheroes on the show.
The Boys spin-off will be set in America’s only college for young adult superheroes, ineffectually referred to as supes, run by Vought International and is being described as “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,” blending the pitfalls of a college series with the gritty competitive nature of The Hunger Games and heart, satire, and raunch of the main series.
Fazekas and Butters will executive produce alongside Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver of Point Grey Pictures and Neal H. Moritz and Payun Shetty of Original Film, while Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television will produce.
