The Boys spin-off will be set in America’s only college for young adult superheroes, ineffectually referred to as supes, run by Vought International and is being described as “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive supes as they put their physical, sexual and moral boundaries to the test,” blending the pitfalls of a college series with the gritty competitive nature of The Hunger Games and heart, satire and raunch of the main series.

The project will be loosely inspired by the G-Men, a parody of the X-Men from The Boys comic book series created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It currently stars Lizze Broadway, Jaz Sinclair, Maddie Phillips, and Reina Hardesty.
