The Boys spinoff is closing in on a series order at Amazon.
In addition, Jaz Sinclair (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and Lizze Broadway (Here and Now) have been cast in lead roles in the series, THR has confirmed.
The official description: “Set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (and run by Vought International), the untitled series is described as an irreverent, R-rated show 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.”
The bawdy superhero drama has been a success for Amazon, which picked up a third season of the series months before the second season premiered last October.
The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke will executive produce the spinoff, while The Boys writer and executive producer Craig Rosenberg will serve as showrunner. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Ken Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson will also serve as executive producers. Serving as co-executive producers for the series are Sarah Carbiener, Erica Rosbe, Aisha Porter-Christie, Judalina Neira, Zak Schwartz.
The Boys season three is currently in production in Toronto, with no premiere date yet set.
