The Boys Could Become a Bigger Cinematic Universe, But Amazon Will ‘Build It Slowly’

It looks as though The Boys could get their own cinematic universe with upcoming spin-offs.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, creator Eric Kripke revealed that Amazon has some further spin-offs in the works.

“We have a couple more scripts [for shows] that we’re in various stages of talking about,” he revealed. However, he also clarified: “I don’t think we’re going to rush it. I think we want to build it slowly.”

The Boys was a huge hit for Amazon when it debuted back in July 2019.

The series stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, and Karen Fukuhara as The Boys – a group of non-powered vigilantes who take on corrupt superhumans, exposing who they really are.

Season 2 debuted back in 2020, and IGN’s own review said: “The Boys Season 2 continues its excellent form of balancing its comedy, over-the-top violence, and character development into a cohesive force of awesomeness. While a few lackluster storylines never get resolved, there are plenty of meaningful moments sprinkled throughout. Homelander and Stormfront’s palpable chemistry, mixed with Billy Butcher’s humanizing character development, demonstrate how effective showrunner Eric Kripke and his team are at crafting an engaging story that has plenty of stylized drama and shocking surprises, but also tons of heart.”

Season 3 is already on its way and introduces a bunch of new supes.

But there was also talk of a spin-off series, which currently remains untitled, focusing on college-age supes as they learn their new profession.
