Even though a spinoff written by The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg has reportedly been in the works for quite some time, Amazon wants to strike while the iron's hot. Season 2 of The Boys became the most-watched global launch of an Amazon Original series ever, besting the viewership mark set by the show's first season. Amazon announced The Boys was being renewed for a third season, months before its Season 2 premiere.
The spinoff, Deadline writes, will explore "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." Said "Supes" will be attending the only college in America, run by Vought International, for people with such abilities.
The news has drawn mixed reactions, with some vowing to watch anything from this universe, while others are cautiously optimistic about the concept.
I really hope they take their time with this one. sounds like it's the second story arc from the comic book where they had a doomed X-Men like team. It was like a mixture of Suicide Squad meets Young Avengers https://t.co/qjKUdJwm2A— Wakanda T-Bar Carmel Apple : 2020 soup thrower (@Currtis25Harr) September 24, 2020
Love The Boys but this spinoff pitch is unexciting. I hope they pull it off. https://t.co/PrPkx3ASou— Rob Keyes (@rob_keyes) September 24, 2020
Amazon announces more to come from the world of THE BOYS, and this spinoff definitely sounds interesting. I’m excited to see anything from this universe at this point. https://t.co/NRPeO4An4J pic.twitter.com/Xz11kyZ7S8— Austin Burke (@theBurk3nator) September 24, 2020
I'm 100% down, the boys is incredible and if the spinoff is as wild as the boys, it's gonna be 🔥 https://t.co/WnjAnGUljG— Project Genesis (@ProGenesis) September 24, 2020
