AceShowbiz - A new "The Boys" series is coming. A new spin-off series titled "The Boys: Mexico" is in the works on Amazon with "Blue Beetle" writer Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer tapped as the writer, according to Deadline.
"The Boys" showrunner Erik Kripke will executive produce via his Kripke Enterprises. He'll be joined by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver via their Point Grey Pictures as well Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty via Original Film.
It's also been reported that Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal are set to serve as executive producers. Sources also claim to the news outlet that the two stars may star on the planned project, though it won't be major roles.
Details about the premise are still unknown. The production is still looking for a co-showrunner to join creator, writer and executive producer Dunnet-Alcocer and the casting hasn't begun just yet. The team is also still setting the budgets for the new superhero series, which will be filmed in the Latin American country.
So far, "The Boys" has spanned two other spin-offs, animated "The Boys Presents: Diabolical" and college-set spin-of "Gen V". "Gen V", which is the first live-action spin-off, was renewed for a second season shortly after premiering in September. The upcoming season four of "The Boys", meanwhile, is expected to stream on Prime Video some time next year.
Based on the New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, "The Boys" is a "a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes - who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods - abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. Intent on stopping the corrupt superheroes, The Boys, a group of vigilantes, continue their heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought - the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. It's the seemingly powerless against the super powerful."
