The Amazon Prime Video original series The Boys premiered its second season in fall 2020 and is preparing for its third season currently. However, the universe built within this comedy-drama series has led to the development of a spinoff series set within the same story world. According to Screen Rant, this untitled spinoff series has announced the casting of Reina Hardesty (The Flash) for the series in a featured lead role. Her current role is still unknown much like how the narrative of the spinoff remains to be under wraps until a future date.
Amazon’s The Boys centers on a group of vigilantes fighting against the evil corporation Vought and their subsequent self-made toxic and narcissistic superheroes. The series was adapted for streaming by Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and is based on the comic book series under the same name by Darick Robertson and Garth Ennis. It has been renewed for a third season and is currently in the process of filming for the upcoming installment.
As mentioned previously, Hardesty’s role within the spinoff has not been revealed, yet she will be a part of the main cast of the upcoming Amazon original. The narrative of the series has loosely been released as it will follow the plight of new and young superheroes at the Vought superhero university. In addition to Hardesty, other casting decisions have included Maddie Phillips (Teenage Bounty Hunters), Shane Paul McGhie (Foster Boy), Lizze Broadway (The Rookie), Jaz Sinclair (Easy, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), and Aimee Carrero (Holidate).
Hardesty is a familiar face for television with roles such as Beth in season four of IFC’s Brockmire, Joss Mardon or Weather Witch in The CW’s The Flash, and Aspen Fairchild in Netflix’s Greenhouse Academy.
