The Boys’ third season will subtly begin to feature the upcoming spin-off inspired by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s G-Men comics, with almost imperceptible references.
In an interview with The Wrap, showrunner Eric Kripke revealed that the series sequel will set the necessary tone for the prequel series development. “We’ve written some references, and we’re starting to highlight it.”
Kripke further explains that a part of The Boys is like the commercials on the Saturday Night Live show.
“Sometimes we just flip to these little ads or moments, and we’re looking at maybe, if we can, getting some references to the spinoff and in some of those as well.”
The spin-off series will center on a college run by Vought and will feature the next generation of heroes competing for contracts, being sort of like rejected characters trying to market their service.
Interestingly, just as the Amazon Prime Video series satirizes numerous Marvel and DC heroes. The G-Men comics are a blatant parody of the X-Men. The spin-off has everything to be a great success.
