On March 4, “The Boys Presents: Diabolical” arrived on Amazon Prime Video, animated spin-off in eight episodes based on the universe of the delirious series ‘The Boys’. This continues to preserve the satirical and fun tone of the original fiction and, in addition, collects stories related to component V, its effects and even about its protagonists.
But the series not only complements the original, but some episodes are also considered canon of “The Boys.” At least that’s how he explains it Variety the showrunner of the main proposal, Eric Kripke, alluding to the last episode of the spin-off: “The ending is hot, yeah. I believe that [Simon Racioppa] He did a great job with it. I don’t think we had any specific plans for it to be canon. But he did such a good job of writing and directing that watching him made me say, ‘That’s what happened.'”
“One Plus One Equals Two” shows Patriot’s origins in The Seven, more specifically, it focuses on his connection to Black Noir: “It’s an episode that tells a bit of the Patriot story, so I wanted to make sure it was as close to the show as possible. There’s also Black Noir in it. So we wanted to try and make it a good American action episode that really felt connected to the Mothership. This is the most connected episode”Racioppa adds in turn.
“There is a backstory to really understanding the relationship between Patriot and Black Noir and give us a deeper understanding before the third season premiere“Kripke concludes.
Kripke also comments on the creator’s chapter of “Rick and Morty,” titled “An Animated Short Where Pissed-Off Supers Kill Their Parents.” And it seems to be related somehow to the third installment as well: “Even though it’s not canon at all, obviously, I will say that there is this kind of unexpected connection between the episode of Justin Roiland and the third season. But in a way that I’m not going to reveal.” The third season of “The Boys” premieres June 3 on Amazon Prime Video.
