The Boys Presents: Varsity comes to the world of The Boys! This serves as an alternate sideline. It’s time to turn attention to what comes after Prime Video’s original series The Boys’ Season 3 finale. Fans require more. In an interview with Deadline, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke provided some details. The info about the upcoming spinoff The Boys Presents: Varsity, leaving fans with just enough to ponder. Kripke said some well-known characters from The Boys’ Universe will unavoidably make a comeback in the spinoff. The setting is a college campus.
The Boys Presents: Varsity is Hunger Games meets The Boys
Collider reported the information that was available at the time. They included a line from the press release describing The Boys Presents: Varsity as “part college show, part Hunger Games—with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.” The series’ first approval by Prime Video in 2021 with Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters attached as showrunners. The spinoff happens in the Vought-run Godolkin University School of Crimefighting. It’s the only school in America that accepts only super-admitted students. It’ll include some background scenes from The Boys’ Season 3 events. There won’t be any appearances from Translucent (Alex Hassell) or Lamplighter (Shawn Ashmore). This is besides their commemorative sculptures on the college’s grounds, since the timeline of Varsity and Season 3 of The Boys coincide. The photos from CBR show this. However, other alumni like Jessie T. Usher from A-Train and Chase Crawford from The Deep are still a possibility!
“There’s definitely crossover, and we’re doing our best to design a universe that sees some of the issues and storylines in Season 3 hand off to the first season in Varsity. Like there’s a presidential campaign happening in the background of that season, and there’s certain things that are happening at that school that are both in reaction to Season 3 of The Boys. There’s Soldier Boy, etcetera, but also some new storylines that are happening in that season of the spinoff that we have to pick up and take into Season 4 of the show.” Eric Kripke informed when talking about The Boys Varsity series.
It’s an R-Rated TV Show
The show’s idea is going to be “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.” Meaning that we’ll see a lot more of Anthony Starr’s (Homelander) brazen and juvenile frat guy behavior, as well as probably a lot more Homelander fans. The G-Men, a spoof of Marvel’s X-Men created by original comic writers Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, who were briefly alluded to in The Boys’ first season, would be a major emphasis of the college, according to Kripke. The Boys Presents: Varsity was previewed in a brief episode of the webseries Seven on 7, which is a parody of Fox News, saying:
“In just a few short months, the best and brightest young heroes from Godolkin University will see their dreams come true or come crashing down… And while this year’s competition is sure to be intense, people can’t stop talking about Godolkin University junior Golden Boy, already seen as the top pick for next year’s draft.”
Since the show was given the go-ahead, the production process has been drawn out. As a result, a few cast members have left the show because some aspects of the creative direction and the characters have diverged from executive producer of The Boys and Varsity writer Craig Rosenberg’s original material.With Kripke serving as executive producer, Varsity’s production got underway in May 2022 and is anticipated to conclude up in October. Kripke – considered the Feige of the VCU
– remarked of The Boys Presents: Varsity:
“It’s a very different corner of the world and it’s a different concern and thematic but it has been interesting. I give Kevin Feige a lot of credit. Because now that we’re dipping our toe into trying to build a universe and trying to do it well… it’s hard enough to keep one fucking show straight but to try to keep two shows straight, have them each be entertaining… is a whole new layer of challenge that.”
