In the time since the the first spin-off for The Boys was announced, a second, animated anthology spin-off, Diabolical, was put into production and released, featuring an all-star team of talent. The original spin-off is still forthcoming, but creative issues have slowed down its arrival, including the studio moving on from original showrunner Craig Rosenberg, and replacing him with Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas.
Along with the exit of Rosenberg, the project saw a few previously announced actors who were attached to the project depart. Some left due to scheduling issues while others had their roles completely reworked and just didn’t fit the type any longer. Reina Hardesty was one of the most recent departures, choosing to move on after her role was reworked. Deadline has announced that London Thor will be replacing Reina as one of the leads in the spin-off.
In addition to Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, and Shelly Conn are also joining the project as series regulars. As of right now Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway and Maddie Phillips remain attached as initially announced members of the cast.
The casting news means the series is getting closer to heading into production, but at the moment there’s still no timeframe for its release. Fortunately, the third season of The Boys is set to hit Amazon Prime with a three-episode premiere on June 8th.
