Back in December of 2021, it was announced that The Boys would be receiving yet another spin-off, this time in the form of an animated anthology series titled The Boys: Diabolical. The initial announcement revealed the series had secured an excellent roster of talent to write the eight-episode animated series, with names like Garth Ennis, Andy Samberg, Justin Roiland, Awkwafina and Aisha Tyler set to pen episodes.
With the premiere of its first trailer today, the official cast listing was unveiled for Diabolical, and it features some new and familiar faces. Joining the cast of Diabolical are Jason Isaacs, Aisha Tyler, Don Cheadle, Kumail Nanjiani, Awkwafina, Kieran Culkin, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Christian Slater, Justin Roiland, Andy Samberg, Kenan Thompson, Chace Crawford, Ilana and Eliot Glazer, Giancarlo Esposito, Kevin Smith, Ben Schwartz, Elisabeth Shue, Antony Starr, Simon Pegg, Michael Cera, Youn Yuh Jung, and Nasim Pedrad. The newcomers will lend their voices to characters in the series, while Starr, Crawford, Esposito, Shue, and Pegg will reprise their roles from The Boys.
The Boys has become a streaming juggernaut for Amazon over the course of two seasons. The series will return for its third outing on Amazon Prime on June 3rd. Diabolical isn’t the only spin-off coming, as a spin-off following younger supes at a Vought-run university, all competing to become the next big Supe. That untitled spinoff does not yet have a release date.
The Boys: Diabolical is set to begin streaming on Amazon Prime on March 3rd. The series was executive produced by Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, James Weaver, Evan Goldberg and Garth Ennis with Amazon Studios, Sony Pictures Television, and Kripke Enterprises producing.
