The Boys spin-off show is being described as a 'raunchy Hunger Games'
We very much like the sound of this...
While we all patiently await the arrival of the third season of The Boys – they recently wrapped filming, so now we just have to hold out for all that lovely post-production to get done – Amazon has announced the show's first official spin-off.
As per The Hollywood Reporter, the official synopsis is as follows:
"Set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International), the Untitled The Boys Spinoff is 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.
"It’s part college show, part Hunger Games - with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys."
Eric Kripke, the creator of The Boys, released a statement on how excited he is following the announcement:
"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 Fazekas and Tara Butters 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!"
He makes a good point about vampires, tbf.
Meanwhile, should you want to catch up, the first two seasons of The Boys are available to watch on Prime Video right now.
