We may still have months to wait yet until the long-awaited season 3 premiere of Prime Video’s hit twisted superhero series The Boys, but something is on the way to tide us over in the meantime — The Boys Presents: Diabolical. Originally announced last December, audiences can look forward to watching the new eight-episode animated anthology series on its upcoming release date that was just confirmed today: March 4!
A first look teaser was shared along with the news, which features laser baby in action. Check it out below.
The Boys, which is based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, is set in a world where superheroes exist. It’s a fun and irreverent take on what happens when these Supes — who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as Gods — abuse their powers. Meanwhile, the Boys are a group of ragtag vigilantes fighting to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought — the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes and covers up all of their dirty secrets.
Diabolical is an animated companion to the series that will reveal unseen stories within The Boys universe, brought to life by an all-star team that includes 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 series 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.
Described as “fun-size,” episodes of Diabolical will be 12-14 minutes long, and they will each have their own animation style.
