'The Boys' is getting a spin-off series

I heard the first episode of season 2 was the biggest episode/piece of content EVER on Amazon.

The news comes just under three weeks after the premiere of Season 2 of the series, which is based on The New York Times best-selling comic of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

If the spinoff focuses on the student body at this Supe university, then it's possible that existing Supe groups like Young Americans, Teenage Kix, and G-Wiz might not have huge parts to play, with the students instead aiming for the shot to join one of them.

New episodes of The Boys land on Amazon every Friday, with the Season 2 finale dropping October 9.

According to Deadline, the spin-off will be set "at America's only college exclusively for young adult superheroes", run by Vought International, the evil behind-the-scenes power from the show.

Although it'll be hard to match the original, a spin-off series of 'The Boys' is now officially in the works at Prime Video. It's described as "part college show, part Hunger Games", with all the "heart, satire, and raunch" of its parent series.

Like its predecessor, the spinoff series will be R-rated as it explores the lives of these competitive and hormonal young heroes, who are each competing for the best contracts in the best cities, thus increasing their likelihood of one day making it into The Seven.

Craig Rosenberg, who is now a writer and executive producer of the original series, is writing the pilot of this still-untitled spin-off and will serve as showrunner and executive producer.

The second season is now streaming weekly, getting a lot of hype online and millions of viewers, so it is not a surprise that Amazon has ordered a spin-off show set in the world of The Boys.

In Season 2, The Boys are on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke will also executive-produce, along with fellow The Boys EPs Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver.

The series stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Kapon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Elisabeth Shue, Colby Minifie, Aya Cash, Simon Pegg among others.
