The Boys is one of the most popular series on Amazon’s Prime Video subscription service and is one of the main reasons many cough up the monthly or yearly fees. I know that’s at least true for me.
The Boys first launched on the platform in 2019 and hasn't looked back since growing ever more popular in the years that followed. Based on the comic series of the same name from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys tells the story of a world of superheroes (for better or worse) and is a satirical take on the USA. It has gripping storylines, interesting characters, gore, romance and comedy. Basically, it has everything you want in an enjoyable series.

To capitalise on The Boys' success, a spin-off series called Gen V launched this year set in the same universe but focused on a group of “Super” teenagers at the Godolkin University School of Crime Fighting, a special school for those with powers. Gen V is certainly a treat for fans of The Boys and if you were concerned that it may have lacked its signature gore, some moments of Gen V were considered more shocking than the original series. Gen V proved to be a massive success, especially according to Rotten Tomatoes and as such, a second season has already been announced.
Not content with the success of The Boys and Gen V, Amazon now has another spin-off in the works reportedly set in Mexico. As reported by Deadline, this new spin-off series will be written by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer (Blue Beetle) and will be produced by Diego Luna (Andor, Rogue One) and Gael García Bernal (Station Eleven, Maya and The Three). Deadline also reports that both actors are considering playing characters in the series, but it is expected that they will not take up leading roles.
No release date has been announced for The Boys' Mexico-based spin off, but it might be safe to assume that it will be a couple of years away at least.
