‘The Boys’: Lizze Broadway, Jaz Sinclair Cast in Spinoff Series about YA Superheroes!!

Announced back in September, Amazon is developing a spinoff series for “The Boys” that will center on a group of young superheroes, “set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (or “supes”) that is run by Vought International.” Deadline brings an update today, reporting that Lizze Broadway (“Here and Now”) has joined the cast.

Broadway, the first actor to sign on, will be playing a character named Emma.

UPDATE: Deadline also reports this afternoon that Jaz Sinclair (“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” ) has signed on as well, set to play a character named Marie.

The site notes, “It is 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, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys.”

Craig Rosenberg will serve as showrunner and he’s also writing the pilot.

Producers will include “The Boys” team of Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

“The Boys” is based on the best-selling comics by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.
