Amazon Greenlights Ennis and Roberston's 'The Boys'

 

Deadline announced in an exclusive that Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's ultra violent superhero series The Boys has been picked up by Amazon for an eight episode order. Evan Goldburg and Seth Rogen are set to direct and the project will be co-produced by Sony Pictures TV Studios and Amazon. The series is currently set to begin filming in spring 2018 for a 2019 release. 

“We are very happy to have the unique opportunity to produce a second series based on the subversive and innovative world of Garth Ennis,” says Chris Parnell, Co-President of Sony Pictures Television Studios.

"In a landscape saturated with superhero shows, The Boys is the next evolution in this popular genre," Amazon Studios Head of Scripted Series Sharon Tal Yguado said. "With Eric, Evan, Seth and Original Film all behind this series, we are excited to adapt this popular comic, from the visionary minds of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, for television.”

The Boys was originally published between 2006 and 2012, lasting 72 issues. It takes place in a world where superheroes exist and are treated as celebrities. With any fame comes corruption, leading to the superheroes becoming reckless, and resulting in a CIA black ops squad known as "The Boys" meant to keep these superheroes in check.
