Amazon Studios has cast Brockmire actress Reina Hardesty in the lead role of the college-set spinoff of The Boys, which currently has no title.
The series is set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes, and it’s run by Vought International. Hardesty will play one of the young superheroes in the show and joins the previously cast Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Maddie Phillips, Jaz Sinclair and Lizze Broadway, who play fellow young superheroes.
The Untitled Show 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.”
The Boys spinoff is being written by The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg, and he will also serve as showrunner on the series.
The Boys developer/executive producer Eric Kripke and Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver; Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty will also executive produce with Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.
