Popularity: 'The Boys' grabbed popularity for its unusual take on superheroes
The Boys became popular among the masses for its unusual take on superheroes, who are often as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and sometimes are revered as gods, but instead of using their power for good, these heroes go rogue. The series sprung up a surprise Outstanding Drama Series nomination at this year's Primetime Emmy Awards. It's also getting a third season.
Quote: It's our take on a college show, says Kripke
Expressing his excitement, Kripke said, "We love this show...can't wait for you to see it." "Much like Mork & Mindy spun-off from Happy Days--which is an insane and true fact--our spin-off will exist in the Vought Cinematic Universe, yet have a tone and style all its own. It's our take on a college show, with an ensemble of fascinating, sometimes deadly Young Supes."
