The Boys: Rogen & Goldberg Confirm College Spinoff Has Title & More
Not a bad time to be a fan of Amazon's Prime Video and showrunner & EP Eric Kripke's series The Boys. First, we now know that the series will be returning this summer for its third season and that an official trailer is on the way sooner rather than later. But why look to the summer for your fix when you can check out The Boys Presents: Diabolical, which debuts on the streaming service today. Of course, the eight-episode animated anthology series isn't the only spinoff in the works, with spinoffs being one of the topics that series EPs and "Diabolical" writers Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg addressed during an interview with Variety.
So what did we learn from Rogen and Goldberg about the slowly expanding "The Boys" universe? First that the duo could "possibly, probably, maybe" see turning one of the "Diabolical" episodes into its own spinoff series, From there, Rogen & Goldberg revealed that showrunners Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters' supes college-set spinoff has a title but they can't reveal it yet. And from the sounds of things, these two are just the tip of the iceberg. "We're talking about spinoffs all the time. We're working on numerous different ideas," Goldberg explained. "Some will not happen, some will. But I think we got more franchising to do. We can grow. We can grow like Laser Baby."
