The Boys universe to be expanded with new animated series Diabolical

Prime Vidoe has announced that the animated series Diabolical - which takes place in the universe of the Emmy nominated hit The Boys - will have eight episodes. Diabolical will premiere on Prime Video in 2022.

The upcoming series was announced via a recorded message of The Boys star Karl Urban during Prime Video's time at the virtual panels during CCXP Worlds 2021.



The new series will reveal untold stories in the world of The Boys. The stories in it come from certain Hollywood big names including Awkwafina, Garth Ennis, Eliot Glazer and Ilana Glazer, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, Simon Racioppa, Justin Roiland and Ben Bayouth, Andy Samberg, and Aisha Tyler.

The Boys is based on a The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It has been developed by executive producer and showrunner Eric Kripke.

“Surprise! We’re almost finished with eight episodes of our animated series, ‘Diabolical,'” executive producer Eric Kripke said in a statement. “We gathered together some incredible creators and we gave them one rule… just kidding, there’s no rules. They blew the doors off it, delivering eight completely unexpected, funny, shocking, gory, moist, emotional episodes. You think ‘The Boys’ is nuts? Wait till you see this.”

Rogen and Goldberg also offered a statement: “Ever since we saw the animated film ‘The Animatrix,’ a series of short animated films set in the universe of ‘The Matrix,’ we’ve wanted to rip it off. Today that dream has come true.”

“Expanding the universe of The Boys has been an amazing journey. Fans will get all-new stories, with all the fun and outrageous humor of The Boys that they know and love—plus some great surprises,” said Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon Studios. “Eric, Seth, and Evan have assembled incredible talent to bring Diabolical to life, and we can’t wait for our Prime Video customers to see this new, wild ride.”

“Eric, Seth, and Evan continue to flip the superhero genre on its head, and Diabolical is another fun and disruptive example,” said Jeff Frost, president, Sony Pictures Television Studios. “We are excited for audiences to experience The Boys universe in this new medium.”

Diabolical is executive produced by Simon Racioppa, Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Ori Marmur, Ken F. Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, Michaela Starr, Loreli Alanís, Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, and Ben Kalina. The series is produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios, with Titmouse, Kripke Enterprises, Original Film, and Point Grey Pictures.
