The Boys Will Spoof X-Men With the Spinoff

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters serve as showrunners of TheBoys‘ spinoff, which is still not titled yet. The spinoff series is set at what is said to be the only college in America for young adults learning how to control and utilize their various superpowers. As it’s led by a professor training superheroes, it lends itself to spoofing X Men, providing plenty of material for the spinoff series. Amazon has described the spinoff 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.”

In March, Prime Video debuted the first spinoff, The Boys: Diabolical. It is an animated anthology series that presents each episode from different creative minds and animation styles. Each episode features the voices of various celebrities and tells stories from different areas of TheBoys‘ universe, including Supes never seen on the live-action series. It’s not yet clear if more seasons are coming but the show was a hit, drawing high acclaim from critics.

Of course, the main series is getting very close to making its return. The first two seasons of TheBoys have both been very well-received and its fandom continues to grow as more fans discover the series. Season 3 will likely debut with high viewership as there has been a lot of anticipation for new episodes, especially with Supernatural star Jensen Ackles making his debut in the franchise in the first episode of the next season.

TheBoys will return with season 3 on Prime Video on June 3, 2022. The college spinoff series does not yet have a premiere date.
