THE BOYS Spinoff Adds Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, and Maddie Phillips in Lead Roles
The hit Amazon series The Boys is set to roll out a yet-to-be titled spinoff, and three of the lead roles have been cast. Shane Paul McGhie (Deputy, Greenleaf), Aimee Carrero (Elena of Avalor, Young & Hungry) and Maddie Phillips (Teenage Bounty Hunter) will all play young superheroes on the show, joining previously cast Jaz Sinclair and Lizze Broadway, who play fellow young superheroes.
The untitled spinoff is being written by The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg, and it is reportedly “set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (and run by Vought International). It is described as an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys.”
Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television are producing as well as The Boys developer/executive producer Eric Kripke and fellow The Boys EPs, Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver; Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty; Ken Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson also executive produce. Sarah Carbiener, Erica Rosbe, Aisha Porter-Christie, Judalina Neira, Zak Schwartz serve as co-executive producers.
