The Boys is getting an Animatrix-style animated spinoff

If you’ve ever wondered about Awkwafina’s fanfic for Amazon’s gory anti-superhero series The Young Boys, your minute has actually come — or a minimum of, it’s on the method.

Prime Video revealed on Dec. 5 that the live-action series will be getting a spinoff in 2022, including 8 “deliciously unique, twisted animated episodes set in the world of The Boys.” The preliminary video statement, including series star Karl Urban, who plays anti-superhero activist Billy Butcher, states each episode will be composed by a various individual or group.

Garth Ennis, who composed the initial comics variation of The Young Boys, is among those credited authors. The others consist of musical artist and motion picture star Awkwafina (just recently seen in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings), Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, long time composing partners Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Entwined developer and Invincible film writer Simon Racioppa, Archer’s Aisha Tyler, Rick and Morty’s Justin Roiland and Ben Bayouth, and brother or sister duo Ilana Glazer (co-creator of Broad City) and Eliot Glazer (manufacturer of New Lady).

The statement provided couple of other information about Wicked, though the focus on 8 various authors or composing groups recommends an anthology of unlinked shorts in the vein of The Animatrix or Netflix’s Love, Death & Robots. The video, which plainly includes Billy’s bulldog Horror energetically licking his own genital areas, definitely recommends the animated series will continue to reveal The Young Boys’ love of all things transgressive. The series, about a world filled with superheroes who abuse their powers and anti-heroes who hunt and penalize them, has actually definitely left lots of space for side stories — the stretching cast and the scope of the world recommends a great deal of unmined capacity that might be used up by innovative minds.

Wicked appears to be unassociated to the formerly revealed Young Boys spinoff, a college-set series created to explore what education appears like for young superpowered individuals in the Young Boys world.

Wicked will show up on Prime Video in 2022.
