Amazon orders Sony Pictures Television spin-off from superhero drama The Boys

Superhero drama The Boys

Amazon has ordered a spin-off from superhero drama The Boys with Agent Carter’s Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters confirmed as showrunners.

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the untitled new series is set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes 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.

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

Kripke said: “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. It’s our take on a college show, with an ensemble of fascinating, complicated and sometimes deadly superheroes.”

The Boys, based on the DC Comics publication of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, has aired two seasons on Amazon Prime Video.
