Considering Amazon’s love of The Boys, it should be no surprise that its proposed spinoff is also a go at the conglomerate’s video service.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Agent Carter‘s Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters will run the show — replacing the previously attached Craig Rosenberg — which centers on a Vought-run college and its classes of super-powered students. The “irreverent, R-rated series” will explore “the lives of hormonal, competitive superheroes as they put their physical, sexual and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities.” Consider it a high-octane version of The Paper Chase … well, for those who even remember The Paper Chase. According to The Boys executive producer Eric Kripke, the program will be more like Mork & Mindy and its tonal shift from its parent show, Happy Days.
Yes, that’s really in Kripke’s statement. He even made a reference to Baywatch Nights, another bizarro spinoff.
Stars include Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty, and Maddie Phillips.
It is unclear how quickly the series will make it to screens, but with The Boys‘ third season recently completing production for a 2022 streaming release, we imagine the untitled super academy program will fill a 2023 slot.
