“This is our take on a college show, with a compelling, complex and sometimes deadly ensemble of Young Supes.”
They are received! Students of The Boys just received their college admission letter from Amazon Prime Video. The platform has just ordered a spin-off of its successful super-series, which will tell the life of young “Supes” in an American University.
The project has been in the works for a few months now and will be overseen by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, who will be showrunners, and take the place of Craig Rosenberg, who left the series due to creative differences.

“Half student series, half Hunger Games, but still with the sense of satire of The Boys“, this new untitled series will take place in”America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes “. It is obviously run by Vought International. Knowing that each of these young Supers will be put in competition, with the objective of winning the best contracts in the best cities.
In passing, we learn that this spin-off will be “R-rated”, the highest classification across the Atlantic, and will therefore be at least as trashy as The Boys.
“Much like Mork & Mindy derived from Happy Days, our spin-off will exist in the Vought Cinematic Universe, but will have a tone and style of its own.“, explains the boss of The Boys, Eric Kripke, who will also be executive producer, alongside Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in particular. “This is our take on a college show, with a compelling, complex and sometimes deadly ensemble of Young Supes.”
The cast will be led by Jaz Sinclair (Sabrina), Lizze Broadway (Here and Now), Shane Paul McGhie (Greenleaf), Aimee Carrero (The Village), Reina Hardesty (The Flash) and Maddie Phillips (Teenage Bounty Hunters), who will embody the young Supes of history.
