THE BOYS SPIN-OFF

Amazon Studios has ordered a new series spin-off of The Boys, the subversive superhero drama from Sony Pictures Television. The untitled new series will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

Here's how the show is described:

"Set at America's only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International), the untitled The Boys spin-off 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."

Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty and Maddie Phillips will portray young superheroes, with additional cast to be announced.

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters will serve as showrunners and executive producers. Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Pavun Shetty, Ken Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, and Michaela Starr will serve as executive producers. Serving as co-executive producers for the series are Zak Schwartz and Erica Rosbe.

"Much like Mork & Mindy spun-off from Happy Days, which is an insane and true fact, our spinoff will exist in the Vought Cinematic Universe, yet have a tone and style all its own," Kripke said. "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."

The Boys recently wrapped production on Season Three, with the premiere to be announced at a later date.
