Amazon Developing 'The Boys' Spinoff

by Outsiders
September 24, 2020
Amazon has begun developing a spinoff of the popular comic book series adaptation “The Boys” based upon how well the second season premiere launched. According to Amazon, the second season had the most-watched global launch of an Amazon original series ever, with the episodes to date having grown the audience from Season 1 by 89%. The series has been renewed for a third season ahead already.

The spinoff is set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (or “supes”) that is run by Vought International. It is 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, 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.”

Showrunner Craig Rosenberg is writing the pilot and will serve as executive producer under his overall deal with Sony Pictures Television. Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver of Point Grey Pictures will executive produce. Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty, who also executive produce. Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television will produce.

Got to love when a show has uniqueness, they want to dilute it as much as they can with spinoffs to run it into the ground. 

Unique? Is that what "The Boys" is? Cause it looks like every other deconstructionist comic book parody I've ever seen. Actually, more cookie cutter than most.

I really like the series but the premise for this spin off doesn't sound very good.

I'm down, if it's as good as The Boys, why wouldn't I want to watch it?, I will refrain from judgement until viewing.

For those of you that have read the books, it sounds like a bit of Teenage Kix.

For those you that haven't read the books, read the books.

THIS is the extent of HBO's creativity? Animal House meets Hero High!?!

Amazon's creativity.

I don't think that sounds very good. Not at all. The Boys' strongest assets are Garth Ennis's original comic, Eric Kripke's translation of that material, Karl Urban's portrayal as Billy Butcher, and Erin Moriarty's portrayal as Starlight. The best this idiotic-sounding spinoff can deliver would be a couple of cameos. Hard pass.
