On the heels of the first season of Gen V, we're hearing that another spin-off of Prime Video's The Boys is in development: A Spanish-language series set in Mexico...

College-set The Boys spin-off, Gen V, recently wrapped its first season, and we now have word that another off-shoot of the main series is in the early stages of development at Prime Video.

According to Deadline, The Boys: Mexico is in the works with Blue Beetle scribe Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer on board as writer. Diego Luna (Andor) and Gael García Bernal (Werewolf By Night) are set to executive produce, but are also said to be considering taking on supporting roles in the show.

Details on the premise are being kept under wraps. A search for a co-showrunner to join creator, writer and executive producer Dunnet-Alcocer is currently underway. The spin-off will be filmed in Mexico, and casting is set to begin soon.

The team behind the original show, Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures, Neil H. Moritz’s Original Film, Sony Pictures Television and Amazon MGM Studios, will oversee The Boys: Mexico.

Though an exact premier date has yet to be set, it was recently announced that The Boys will return for its fourth season next year.

"For Butcher, by the time they were making the finale, we were pretty deep into breaking Season 4," said Kripke in a recent interview. "We knew that we wanted that virus to be a pretty big part of Season 4, and we knew that we wanted Butcher to be aware of it. It seems crazy that he wouldn’t be aware of it. It became kind of tricky, because how do we show that he knows about it without it just being dialogue? This idea came up that it probably shouldn’t even happen in The Boys, it should happen in Gen V.”

"The value of having the [two shows’ writers] rooms be in coordination is, our room took it to Michele and her room and said, ‘Can we put Butcher in the end, so we can show that he’s really hot on the tail of the virus?’ It was really cool, because it does a nice little preamble to what’s coming next. And Karl and Ant both were willing to come in on their days off to go work on the other show. But the Homelander part was Michele’s team."

Check out some promo art at the link below.

Specific season 4 plot details are also under wraps, but we do know that new recruits will include Susan Heyward as Sister Sage, and Valorie Curry as Firecracker. Cameron Crovertti (Ryan) has also been upped to series regular, which is hardly surprising after the sinister final shot of season 3.

Kripke recently confirmed that The Boys will not finish up after four seasons.

The idea sounds full of potential and I’ll watch but The Boys universe keeps becoming more and more like the very thing they make fun of.
MyCoolYoung - 11/28/2023, 5:37 PM
@GhostDog - I came here to say the same thing lol
supermanrex - 11/28/2023, 6:00 PM
@GhostDog - im all for expanding but i think it needs to be a small number of shows and tight and concise content. no cash grabs that aren't organic to the original mother ship show. dont over saturate and stray to far from the source.
GhostDog - 11/28/2023, 7:30 PM
@supermanrex - Gen V felt organic to an extent given the topic of heroes having contacts with cities and us knowing about God U and the parallel between athletics and superherodom that the show has had since day one.

I’m sure they will set up Mexico with these last two seasons of The Boys (and who knows if that’s the case as I’m sure Amazon wants as many seasons as possible if it stays popular). It sort of feels like expansion for the sake of it.

At the end of the day, more content leaves you open to over saturation. Remember when The Boys was just going to be this singular thing, 5 seasons at best? I remember Kripke saying that around season 2. It’ll be interesting to see if they keep expanding beyond even 3 shows. When The Boys ends does all of this end or not.
lazlodaytona - 11/29/2023, 6:57 AM
@GhostDog - Agreed. Yet, I feel having a 3rd spin-off is a reach. There's no need for it really. Just keep the Boys and Gen-V and we're good.
lazlodaytona - 11/29/2023, 6:57 AM
@supermanrex - kinda what I just posted below. Agree with you.
supermanrex - 11/29/2023, 9:49 AM
@GhostDog - no one even thinks about over saturation until the quality starts to show it. i guess if they have ten shows if they all good and excellent quality i guess i can be cool with it too. just like super hero fatigue. its not really fatigue until people start saying the quality sucks. so naturally the more spinoffs the more to juggle and keep quality up on, and the more hands in the kitchen then lead to more divergent thoughts on how to make things. that's when we see shit fall apart. as long as Mexico doesn't try to go in some way off crazy taiki waihiti direction in tone then it should be like actually watching an extension of the main The Boys story line. after Andor i trust Diego Luna to put out quality...especially with source material such as the boys.
GhostDog - 11/29/2023, 9:51 AM
@supermanrex - Luna and Bernal are great and I know that won't try to put out a bad product.
supermanrex - 11/29/2023, 9:51 AM
@lazlodaytona - i trust Diego to bring some awesome shit. he knocked it out of the park with Andor.
lazlodaytona - 11/29/2023, 12:03 PM
@supermanrex - dude. This is an epic rant .... but a completely good and accurate one.
Shoot. I'd actionably try to gonna seen it when it premiers somewhere. good call for u dude.
mountainman - 11/28/2023, 5:25 PM
On one hand, I already didn’t watch Gen V and don’t know how interested I am in a huge connected universe around this.

On the other, this could be much more interesting than superhero university.

Plus Luna and Bernal are some top notch talent attached.

Consider me intrigued.
Tpo81 - 11/28/2023, 6:20 PM
@mountainman - Gen V was awesome if you enjoyed the boys it's a must watch imo. Yes they're in college but it was just like watching the boys and that's all I can ask for
lazlodaytona - 11/29/2023, 6:59 AM
@mountainman - Gen-V was definitely worth it to me. It actually surprised me how much I get into it. Give it a whirl.
bobevanz - 11/28/2023, 5:26 PM
Too much of a good thing eh? No? Lol
AmazingFILMporg - 11/28/2023, 7:17 PM
@bobevanz -


It is dying though💁.



Literally every metric shows that. One blue ray from a director that encouraged all of his fans to buy the blue ray doesn't discount the data.


He is the exemption and not the rule.



You sound like a Snyder bro.


Snyder cut had amazing viewership on HBO Max!!!! People want the universe to continue! People love it!!!! 🤡
TheLobster - 11/28/2023, 5:32 PM
I thought Gen V was done pretty well so if this is of the same caliber? Count me in!

Would love to see a superhero version of Narcos.
lazlodaytona - 11/29/2023, 7:01 AM
@TheLobster - All I'm saying is it BETTER have this guy in it!

AFriendFromWork - 11/28/2023, 5:34 PM
On board ass writer.
Blergh - 11/28/2023, 5:38 PM
Yes! Foreign spin offs for established universes are a good idea
lazlodaytona - 11/29/2023, 12:08 PM
@Blergh - I hope u aren't being sarcastic.
Gen V was a hit surprise but (I thought it would suck but 20 minutes in I was hooked).
ModHaterSLADE - 11/28/2023, 5:44 PM
Luna was great on Narcos, hope he stars in it.
bkmeijer1 - 11/28/2023, 5:49 PM
There is some solid talent involved, and it has a setting with a ton of potential (like superpowered cartels mentioned in a comment above). But why call it 'The Boys: Mexico' and not 'Los Chicos'?
HashTagSwagg - 11/28/2023, 6:02 PM
It's the Walking dead all over again.
GhostDog - 11/28/2023, 7:31 PM
@HashTagSwagg - this may be the perfect comparison
TheLobster - 11/28/2023, 9:44 PM
@HashTagSwagg - not really. That show went off the rails by the second season whereas The Boys has only gotten better and Gen V while not as great was still pretty solid.

Fear The Walking Dead has always sucked.
HashTagSwagg - 11/28/2023, 9:56 PM
@TheLobster - The Boys season 1 is the best of the 3. The cinematography made it actually looked like a film, whereas the other 2 started looking more like they were cutting corners. Gen V looked even cheaper.
BeNice123 - 11/28/2023, 6:18 PM
Mexicans probly are on board… im good on the spin offs…
Evansly - 11/28/2023, 7:46 PM
@BeNice123 - I can only speak for one Mexican, but I'm on board
BeNice123 - 11/28/2023, 7:55 PM
@Evansly - sweet…
Rosraf - 11/28/2023, 6:37 PM
Sure sure. But please don't take even longer between seasons on the original show.

We shouldn't jump the gun and dismiss this so early but you can't deny they are walking into the territory of milking this which is the whole point of their original mothership series and even the Gen-V spinoff: they poke fun at the mainstream media of the superhero landscape.

They're turning into what they are supposed to be pseudo against it. And Kripke said The Boys is only supposed to run for 5 Seasons and such. He's not gonna milk this like how different creatives did with Supernatural.

The main draw of this whole universe is the Boys vs Homelander and Vought and when the stories of that evil guy and Butcher and Hughie, Annie etc end, that's it.

Are they even aware of thi?
DocSpock - 11/28/2023, 8:24 PM

You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

next inevitable The Boys spinoff: Boyz in the Hood.

lazlodaytona - 11/29/2023, 7:02 AM
@DocSpock - that's hilarious dude :D

Atp I trust anything related to the The Boys universe. I thought that Gen V was a weird idea. They proved how wrong I was!
Nomis929 - 11/29/2023, 12:33 AM
I never been one to say the live action version is better tha the source material.

But this show is the the Exception as it is far more superior than the crapfest of a "comic" it's based on.

So I'll give this spin off a shot.
