The third season of ‘The Boys’ is already complete on Amazon Prime Video, a streaming platform that is so enchanted with the universe of its Supers that it has given the green light to two spin-offs. On the one hand, there is the animated ‘The Boys Presents: Diabolical’, already available with 8 episodes that are around just over 10 minutes; and on the way we have ‘The Boys Presents: Varsity’, a university spin-off that is still in development.
The showrunner of ‘The Boys’ and main promoter of his universe, Eric Kripke, has spoken about this project. advancing a detail that will delight fans of these brutal superhero adventures. This next television fiction, which according to Kripke himself, mixes the university vibe with touches of ‘The Hunger Games’, will be set in the only university in the United States exclusively for superheroes (and directed by Vought International). This proposal is presented as a new irreverent corner of the universea series for people over 18 (of course) that explores the lives of superheroes who are not only at their hormonal peak, but have also reached the top competitively speaking. Thus, the only objective of the protagonists of this fiction is to test their physical, sexual and moral limits by competing for the best contracts in the best cities.
Kripke, in statements to deadline, confirms that ‘Varsity’ will intersect with the mother series, which means that we will see one of the protagonists of ‘The Boys’ walking around the aforementioned university campus. Temporarily located at the same moment in which season 3 of ‘The Boys’ takes place, the new series thus rules out cameos by Translucent (Alex Hassell) or Lamplighter (Shawn Ashmore), but other students such as A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) or The Deep (Chace Crawford) could be a possibility.
crossing of plots
Kripke explains that we will not see a simple cameo of some familiar face of ‘The Boys’, but that the arguments of both series would be connected.
“There will definitely be a crossover and we’re doing our best to design a universe where some of the issues and stories from Season 3 are also dealt with in the first season of ‘Varsity’. There is a presidential campaign in the background in said season 1 and there are certain things that happen on the campus of ‘Varsity’ that are a reaction to season 3 of ‘The Boys’. There’s Soldier Boy, et cetera, but In addition, some plots are introduced that we plan to return to in the fourth season.“.
The fourth season of ‘The Boys’ begins shooting on August 20, while ‘Varsity’, a series that has Craig Rosenberg as executive producer and screenwriter, filming began last May and plans to conclude said production in October.
