While we are still waiting for season 3 of “The Boys”, comedian Karl Urban (Butcher in the series) has just announced the arrival of a spin-off. This is an animated series, also expected on Amazon Prime Video.
The Boys : soon season 3
Created in 2019 by Eric Kripke, series The Boys quickly aroused an impressive enthusiasm. Adapted from Garth Ennis’ iconic comic book of the same name, which debuted in 2006, the series has already grown through two seasons, and it’s not all going to end. Notably worn by Karl Urban, Jack Quaid and Antony Starr, the show tells how a group of powerless humans oppose the greatest so-called superheroes on Earth. At present, the first two seasons are available on Amazon Prime Video. The third season is currently in production.
A spin-off series will soon land
It is the actor Karl Urban who has just formalized the thing. Indeed, the actor announced during the Comic Con Experience that a spin-off of the series will soon land on Jeff Bezos’ platform. Entitled The Boys: Diabolical, this is the second series derived from the universe of The Boys to be announced. Indeed, a few months ago, Eric Kripke has formalized the launch of a show, still untitled, centered on young superheroes evolving in an American high school.
The Boys: Diabolical will be composed of eight animated episodes, which will be directed and voiced by diverse and varied actors including Awkwafina, Ilana Glazer, Justin Roiland, Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg or even Garth Ennis himself. The show will obviously take place in the universe of the main series. Eric Kripke also himself expressed on the project through a press release relayed by Variety :
Surprise! We have almost completed all eight episodes of our Diabolical animated series. We got some amazing creators together and gave them a rule… just kidding, there are no rules. They broke all the codes and delivered eight completely unexpected, funny, shocking, gory and moving episodes. Did you think The Boys was nuts? Wait till you see this.
The tone promises to be promising and in vain for the main series. According to Variety always, the spin-off series will be released on Amazon Prime Video in 2022, before season 3 of The Boys, which still does not have a release date. While waiting for all this, we leave you with the message from Karl Urban:
