Amazon Prime Announces The Boys: Diabolical Animated Anthology Series
It seems like Amazon Prime just can’t get enough of The Boys. In addition to the upcoming third season, there’s also a live-action spinoff series that was formally ordered earlier this year. Now, The Boys are getting animated. At CCXP 2021, Amazon formally announced The Boys: Diabolical, a new eight-episode anthology series set in the same universe as the show.
In the announcement video below, The Boys star Karl Urban revealed that Garth Ennis. the co-creator of The Boys comic, will write an episode of the new animated spinoff. However, the promo largely consists of Butcher’s dog, Terror, licking his genitals.
“Surprise! We’re almost finished with eight episodes of our animated series, Diabolical,” said showrunner Eric Kripke via Collider. “We gathered together some incredible creators and we gave them one rule…just kidding, there’s no rules. 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.”
The Boys executive producers, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, will co-write an episode of the new series. Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland is also writing an episode with Ben Bayouth. Aisha Tyler, Awkwafina, Andy Samberg, Eliot Glazer and Ilana Glazer, and Simon Racioppa have also been confirmed as writers as well.
Amazon Prime hasn’t set a date for The Boys: Diabolical. However, the animated series seems likely to premiere in 2022.
