The Boys: Mexico Spinoff Gets Disappointing Update

Eric Kripke confirms the series is still in early stages of development.

Prime Video will soon be experimenting even further with the world of The Boys, with reports from last year indicating that yet another spinoff series is in the works. The project, which is expected to be set in Mexico, will further explore The Boys' realm of violent superheroics — but it sounds like we might have to wait a little bit longer for it to come to fruition. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke revealed that even though work has begun on The Boys: Mexico, the series has "a lot of hurdles" before it becomes a reality.

"They are still making the deal with the writer for the pilot," Kripke explained, referencing writer and co-showrunner Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer. "He has an amazing pitch, and we all giggle and think about how fun it would be. But there are a lot of hurdles for that show before it's a real show. He's got to write an amazing pilot, he's probably got to write an amazing episode 2. I think he can and he will, but we're a while away from truly starting to drop in the Easter eggs and the setups and stuff."

What Is The Boys: Mexico About?

Plot details are currently unknown about The Boys: Mexico. Diego Luna (Andor) and Gael Garcia Bernal (Marvel's Werewolf by Night) are producing the series, and are expected to act on the show in some capacity. 

"I'm very excited about what we can do, because we can do something very interesting in Latin America," Bernal said in a recent chat with Variety.
