The Boys Presents: Varsity arrives in the world of The Boys! This serves as an alternate sideline. It’s time to draw attention to what comes after the Season 3 finale of Prime Video’s original series The Boys. Fans are asking for more. In an interview with Deadline, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke provided some details. The information on the upcoming spin-off The Boys Presents: Varsity, leaving fans with just enough to think about. Kripke said some well-known characters from the boys’ universe will inevitably make a return in the spinoff. The setting is a university campus.
The Boys Presents: Varsity is Hunger Games meets The Boys
Collider reported the information 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 Boys heart, satire and torpor”. The series’ first endorsement by Prime Video in 2021 with Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters attached as showrunners. The fallout occurs at Godolkin University’s crime-fighting school run by Vought. It is the only school in America that only accepts super-admitted students. It will include background scenes from the events of season 3 of The Boys. There will be no appearances from Translucent (Alex Hassell) or Lamplighter (Shawn Ashmore). This is in addition to their memorial sculptures on the college grounds, since the timelines of Varsity and The Boys season 3 coincide. CBR photos show it. However, other alumni like Jessie T. Usher of A-Train and Chase Crawford of The Deep are still a possibility!
“There’s definitely a crossover, and we’re doing our best to design a universe that sees some of the issues and storylines from Season 3 move into the first season of Varsity. For example, there’s a presidential campaign going on in the background of this season, and there’s some things happening at this school that are both in reaction to season 3 of The boys. There’s Soldier Boy, etc., but also new storylines that unfold during this season of the spin-off that we need to pick up and incorporate into Season 4 of the show. Eric Kripke informed while talking about The Boys Varsity series.
It’s an R-Rated TV show
The idea for the show will be “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal and competitive Supes as they test their physical, sexual and moral limits, competing for the best contracts in the best cities”. That means we’ll see a lot more cheeky, boyish behavior from Anthony Starr (Homelander), as well as probably a lot more Homelander fans. The G-Men, a parody of Marvel’s X-Men created by original comic book writers Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, who were briefly alluded to in the first season of The Boys, would be a major college priority, according to Kripke. The Boys Presents: Varsity was previewed in a brief episode of the web series Seven on 7, which is a parody of Fox News, saying:
“In just a few short months, Godolkin University’s best and brightest young heroes will see their dreams come true or fall apart… And while this year’s competition will certainly be intense, people can’t help but to talk about Godolkin University’s junior Golden Boy, already considered the top pick for next year’s draft.
“It’s a very different corner of the world and it’s a different concern and theme, but it’s been interesting. I give Kevin Feige a lot of credit. Because now that we’re trying to build a universe and we’re trying to do it well… it’s hard enough to keep a fucking streak straight but to try to keep two streaks straight, make them each entertaining… that’s a whole new layer of challenge that.
