‘The Boys: Mexico’ Spin-off In The Works With ‘Blue Beetle’ Writer

The Boys universe is set to expand yet again, with another spin-off in the works. Variety reports that The Boys: Mexico will be the next project in the pipeline, serving as a Spanish-language offshoot of Amazon’s popular dark superhero series based on the comic books by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer penned the script for DC’s Blue Beetle starring Xolo Maridueña (pictured).

Exact details remain under wraps, but Blue Beetle scribe Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer has been attached to write. Series creator Erik Kripke is executive producer, alongside Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver of Point Grey Pictures, and Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty of Original Film. Like The Boys, the project would be produced by Sony Pictures Television and Amazon MGM Studios.

Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal are also expected to executive produce under their La Corriente del Golfo banner, though deals are still currently being sorted out. A search is underway for a co-showrunner, and the casting process has yet to begin.

Should The Boys: Mexico go forward, it’d be the third side entry in the franchise, with the other two being the animated The Boys Presents: Diabolical, and the college-set spin-off Gen V, which has been renewed for a second season. The Boys, meanwhile, is headed to Season 4.

The Boys: Mexico

The show has proven to be one of the most popular Amazon streaming originals to date. First launched in 2019, it explores an alternate world in which superheroes abuse their powers instead of using them for good. The Boys, a group of vigilantes intent on stopping the corruption, are on a quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought — the million-dollar company that manages the superheroes and sweeps their dirty secrets under the rug. It has received eight Emmy nominations to date, including one for best drama series in 2021.
