The creator and head writer of Amazon Prime’s The Boys, Eric Kripke, has been hard at work developing the new The Boys Untitled Spin-off series. He spoke about the inspiration for the spin-off during a recent interview with The Wrap:
“I would say it’s loosely inspired by an element of the comics, which is the G-Men. Part of the G-Men is there’s sort of an educational, college experience, and we just used that as a jumping-off point, kind of similar to ‘The Boys,’ where we sort of take an initial notion and then we are going to run with it in our own weird direction.”
The untitled spin-off series already contains an impressive cast: Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Maddie Phillips, Reina Hardesty, Jaz Sinclair, and Lizze Broadway, but new character descriptions and casting choices have recently been revealed. Aimee Carrero will play Britney, Shane Paul McGhie will play Andre aka Polarity, and Reina Hardesty will play Jordan Lee. Maddie Phillips is reported to be playing a recurring character named Chase who is the head of a sorority.
The character of Matt is described as a good looking Caucasian 19 year old who is an agent of chaos but contains just enough boyish charm to get away with it. He is a series regular.
Alex is described as an 18 year old Latinx man who carries around a great deal of stress and anxiety. He has just begun his college career and wishes to lead a normal life and fit in. He is also noted as a series regular who will appear in seven of the eight episodes.
Rebecca is described as an attractive Caucasian woman in her 40s who is trying to balance an already stressful life of a superhero while also parenting a daughter in college. She will be a recurring guest role.
Emma is trying to lead a normal life in college while also living in the shadow of her mother’s superhero fame. This causes tension between them, so there is likely to be a good amount of emotionally fraught scenes between the two of them. The series will have these young adult characters exploring the hardships of college life with the added pressure of also being superhero hopefuls.
Production for the new series is set to take place in Toronto, where the third season of The Boys is currently filming, and will begin in August 2021 and end in February 2022. Craig Rosenberg will serve as showrunner and writer while Eric Kripke will be executive producer along with the original creators of The Boys comic book series, Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

When I’m not busy daydreaming or having an existential crisis, I can usually be found watching a movie or TV, listening to music or a podcast, or with my nose in a book.
