According to Deadline, the spin-off will be set "at America's only college exclusively for young adult superheroes", run by Vought International, the evil behind-the-scenes power from the show. After all, most of The Boys' Supes aren't in The Seven, so most of the spinoff's Supes might not be parts of groups yet either.

The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg will write the pilot of the new show and serve as showrunner, with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg amongst the producers.

The Boys is based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's New York Times best-selling comic series of the same name, which explores the darker side of superhero-dom, painting the super-powered caped figures as corrupted by their fame and power, and prone to reckless, sometimes criminal behavior.

Following the successful Season Two launch of The Boys, Amazon Studios has fast-tracked the development of The Boys spin-off series from Sony Pictures Television.

Spotify, Epic, Tinder, etc. join forces to oppose Apple App Store
Apple started loosening some of these restrictions this year, letting users switch their web browser or email app of choice. Several of the founding members are companies that have recently battled Apple over its App Store policies.

Season 2 of The Boys kicked off with a bang earlier this month, and Amazon already wants more of the comic-book-adaptation-turned-hit-TV-show.

After releasing the first three episodes at once and an additional episode every Friday, the season two finale is scheduled to drop October 9. Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty, from Original Film, will also be executive-producing the spinoff.

There's no other details available on The Boys' spin-off just yet, including its title, but there's still plenty of reason to be excited about more adventures in this twisted, risky world.

The sixth season 2 episode of The Boys, "The Bloody Doors off", hits Amazon tomorrow, you can check out an extended promo for that below. Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) are in hiding after the explosive events of the first season finale, while Butcher (Karl Urban) is off on his own for a bit.
