The Boys Spinoff Series Confirmed For Amazon Prime Video
This news was confirmed by Deadline.
The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke was actually the one who confirmed this news in an interview with Deadline.
He added that some of the storylines in The Boys Season 3 will “hand off” to the first season of Varsity.
This means that we might get to see some familiar faces in the spinoff.
The Boys Season 3 finale aired last week on Prime Video.
“There’s definitely crossover, and we’re doing our best to design a universe that sees some of the issues and storylines in Season 3 hand off to the first season in Varsity,” Kripke said.
“Like there’s a presidential campaign happening in the background of that season, and there’s certain things that are happening at that school that are both in reaction to Season 3 of The Boys. There’s Soldier Boy, etcetera, but also some new storylines that are happening in that season of the spinoff that we have to pick up and take into Season 4 of the show.”
The Boys’ new spinoff show is called The Boys Presents: Varsity
Varsity has been described as an irreverent, R-rated series 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.
It’s been described as being part college show, part Hunger Games with the same heart, satire, and raunchiness of the flagship series.
The series is set to star Patrick Schwarzenegger as Golden Boy, Sean Patrick Thomas as Polarity, Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau, Marco Pigossi as Edison Cardosa, Chance Perdomo, Shelley Conn and more.
“It’s a very different corner of the world and it’s a different concern and thematic but it has been interesting,” Kripke said.
“I give Kevin Feige a lot of credit because now that we’re dipping our toe into trying to build a universe and trying to do it well… it’s hard enough to keep one fucking show straight but to try to keep two shows straight, have them each be entertaining… is a whole new layer of that.”
