Amazon’s The Boys spinoff series is nearing a formal series greenlight and has cast Jaz Sinclair and Lizze Broadway as their young superheroes.
Sinclair, best known for her role Rosalind Walker, aka Ros, in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, will play a young superhero named Marie. American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rules‘ Lizzie Broadway will also be suiting up as a hero named Emma.
The untitled The Boys spinoff is set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes run by Vought International. Described as an irreverent and R-rated series, it will explore the lives of hormonal and competitive superheroes who will put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. The series is framed as part college show, part Hunger Games and of course, part The Boys with all the heart, satire and raunch.
Based on the bestselling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. The Boys later embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought, a multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes and covers up all of their dirty secrets.
The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg will write, executive produce and show run the spinoff series.
