The Boys Creators on Spinoff Release Date for Season 4

As the season 3 finale of The Boys debuts Friday, showrunner Eric Kripke and his writers are already hard at work on season 4, while Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas get halfway through filming their untitled spinoff series.

As the creator of Amazon Prime Videos’ adaptation of the Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic series, which he produces alongside Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Kripke is focused on juggling storylines across the Vought Cinematic Universe, aka the VCU. These currently include The Boys, his anthological animated series The Boys Presents: Diabolical directed by Simon Racioppa, and the superhero college spinoff directed by Butters and Fazekas.

“The spin-off is almost halfway through filming. I think the overall goal is to skip them, where a number of months after the conclusion of ‘The Boys’ season 1 of the spinoff will come out,” Kripke said diversity ahead of the season 3 finale of The Boys. “And then, a number of months after that, Season 4 of ‘The Boys’ will come out.”

A satirical take on superheroes, The Boys pokes fun at many of the characters that appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – but has nothing but respect for its creative mastermind.

“I give my credit to Kevin Feige — because we’re doing this thing where the spinoff kind of takes elements of our season ending, carries that ball forward, and then picks the next season of ‘The Boys’ on it because there’s overlap in the characters and there’s a presidential campaign going on in the background,” Kripke said. “There’s just all these things in the world that we need to address and cover. This shared universe is tough as hell, man, because they’re all ultimately episodes of the same massive series. I give Kevin Feige a lot of credit for not only making them all entertaining in their own place, but telling this massive meta-story. I’ll send him a fruit basket with ‘Nice work!’ written on it.”

Few details are currently known about The Boys spinoff series, including its title, but parts of the storyline – which follows students at a superhero college run by Vought – were laid out for eagle-eyed fans during the third season of his mothership series . The first was a moment when an image of Jaz Sinclair, who stars in the spinoff show, popped up among images of superkids being raised in an orphanage for abandoned children with powers. Another point was pointed out to us by Kripke himself.

“Only a very, very small one, if A-Train and Blue Hawk are talking. Blue Hawk refers to “We both trained under Brink at school and he taught us how to totally dominate,” he said. “Because these two boys graduated from Good Oak, which is what the school is called [in the spinoff]and Brink is a nod to the great superhero coach at that school, who is a character in the spin-off.”

In a recent interview with Marc Malkin’s Just for Variety podcast, Patrick Schwarzenegger, who also stars in the spin-off, described it as “‘Euphoria’ meets superheroes.” Kripke says that’s partly true, partly not.

“It’s about mentally complicated children who get into trouble,” said Kripke. “It’s like ‘Euphoria’ in that way. I don’t know if it’s as dark as “Euphoria” to be honest. “Euphoria” manages to be darker than the film universe of “The Boys”. For example, they don’t inject heroin in the hallways of their school, I would say. But hopefully we’re capturing something real about what it’s like to be a kid in this media-saturated landscape we’re all living in.” The Boys Creators on Spinoff Release Date for Season 4
