Today, Prime Video gave fans a look at the highly anticipated third season of The Boys, with the release of the official trailer and key art. The Emmy-nominated drama will return with three new episodes on 3rd June, followed by one additional episode each subsequent Friday, and ending with a season finale on Friday, 8th July.
Patrick Schwarzenegger (The Staircase), Sean Patrick Thomas (The Tragedy of Macbeth) and Marco Pigossi (Invisible City) have been announced for recurring roles in Prime Video’s college-set spinoff of The Boys. Character details are being kept under wraps.
From showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, the as-yet untitled spinoff, which is now in production, is set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International). The spinoff 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. It’s part college show, part Hunger Games— with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.
Previously announced series regulars include Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann and Shelley Conn.
Fazekas and Butters executive produce alongside Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Pavun Shetty, Ken Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, Craig Rosenberg, who wrote the original script, Zak Schwartz, Erica Rosbe and Michaela Starr. Brant Engelstein is co-executive producer.
The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and Amazon Studios, in association with Kripke Enterprises, Point Grey Pictures, and Original Film. Loreli Alanís will serve as executive in charge for Point Grey Pictures.
Watch The Boys – Diabolical
Filming of Bill Murray’s upcoming movie Being Mortal has been suspended after a complaint was reportedly filed specifically against the 71-year-old actor, alleging “inappropriate behavior.”
It is unknown at this time what Murray’s involvement in the project will be going forward as the investigation remains active. Insiders speaking to Deadline added that Aziz Ansari — who is starring, writing and making his directorial debut on the film alongside his partner Youree Henley — was not a part of the complaint, neither was Seth Rogen, who also appears in Being Mortal.
