'The Boys' world expanding on Amazon with new animated anthology spinoff series 'Diabolical'
Get ready for the world of The Boys to get even more messed up.
The world of The Boys is about to get even more messed up, and this time it'll all be animated. Over the weekend during CCXP Worlds '21, The Boys star Karl Urban revealed that the world of the hit Amazon Prime Video superhero comedy series is about to expand via an eight-episode animated anthology series titled Diabolical, a nod to one of Urban's character Billy Butcher's favorite words.
"While we've been hard at work on Season 3, [showrunner Eric Kripke and producers Seth Rogen and Evan Golberg] have asked a few of their celebrity mates to cook up eight deliciously unique, twisted, animated episodes set in the world of The Boys," Urban said.
Urban also revealed the show's title card, created by Titmouse, which features a graffiti style logo and an animated version of Butcher's dog, Terror.
Check it out, along with Urban's announcement, in the teaser video below.
So, which "celebrity" mates are contributing stories for Diabolical? As you may have seen in the video above, the roster of creators includes The Boys co-creator Garth Ennis, Rogen and Goldberg, Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings co-star Awkwafina, Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg, and Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys host Aisha Taylor, among others.
"We gathered together some incredible creators and we gave them one rule… just kidding, there's no rules," Kripke said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. "They blew the doors off it, delivering eight completely unexpected, funny, shocking, gory, moist, emotional episodes. You think The Boys is nuts? Wait till you see this."
Diabolical is the second full-scale spinoff series to emerge from The Boys since the show launched on Prime in the summer of 2019. In addition to Diabolical, the series has produced a spinoff based on the adventures of young Supes at college, which got production rolling earlier this year and does not yet have an official title. Throw in web shows like Seven on 7 and the Prime Rewind aftershow, and you've got a full-scale universe that Vought would be proud of you.
The Boys Season 3 is coming soon on Prime Video.
