The Boys is definitely Amazon Prime Video’s biggest hit, and they’re betting big on this satirical superhero franchise. After knocking it out of the park with this year’s spin-off Gen V, the streaming giant is developing another offshoot series set in Mexico.

The Boys: Mexico is being developed by the Blue Beetle writer Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, who’ll serve as its creator and executive producer. Amazon is currently looking for a co-showrunner to join him, and not much is known about the project’s plot, apart from the fact it will be set in Mexico.

The Y Tu Mamá También co-stars Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal are also coming on board as executive producers. The longtime friends have been collaborating for over two decades, and they’ll produce The Boys: Mexico via their La Corriente del Golfo banner, which they founded in 2018.

The Boys tells the tale of a team of vigilantes who join forces with one goal in mind – to bring down the Vought corporation and its corrupt superheroes, who are using their powers in vain. Based on the comic books by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys universe is constantly expanding and its recent spin-off Gen V became an instant hit this year, promptly receiving a renewal for Season 2.
