The Boys: Mexico

Get ready for The Boys: Mexico! A new Spanish-language spinoff of the Prime Video series is in development from Blue Beetle writer Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, with Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal set to executive produce.

Details regarding The Boys: Mexico are being kept under wraps for the time being, but the series will be shot in Mexico. The search is on for someone to serve as co-showrunner alongside Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer. Deadline adds that Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal are considering appearing in the series as well, although they would not be main roles.

Since the debut of The Boys in 2019, we’ve seen two spinoff series released: The animated anthology series The Boys Presents: Diabolical debuted on Prime Video last year, and was followed by Gen V, a college-set spinoff which wrapped up its first season last month and has already been renewed for a second. With The Boys: Mexico now on the way, it will be fun to see how the franchise will expand with this latest spinoff.

From the world of The Boys comes Gen V, which explores the training of the first generation of superheroes to know about Compound V, and that their powers were injected into them, rather than God-given,” reads the official Gen V synopsis. “These young, competitive heroes put their physical and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the school’s highly coveted top ranking. They quickly come to learn that ambition comes with sacrifice, and the difference between right and wrong is not as clear as they once believed. When the university’s dark secrets come to light, the students must come to grips with what type of heroes they are going to become.

Our own Alex Maidy found a lot to enjoy with Gen V, which he said benefited from the trial and error of The Boys. “The first season of The Boys felt more like a spoof than a satire and it took a full season before it found its rhythm,” Maidy wrote in his review. “Gen V benefits from the trial and error of the flagship series and hits the ground running from the first episode. The cast is solid, and the connections to The Boys never feel forced. Gen V is full of interesting storylines and lots of superpowered action shown through the lens of those who have not yet hit the pinnacle of celebrity like members of The Seven have.” You can check out the rest of Maidy’s review of Gen V right here.
