Kripke has taken “The Boys” from a popular TV adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s raunchy superhero comics, described as an “R-rated Marvel,” to a Television Academy-acclaimed multiseries franchise, the first-ever for Amazon Prime Video. In September 2021, “The Boys’” second season was up for a drama Emmy. This June, season 3 premiered to a 17% increase in ratings. Now in production on season 4, “Boys” boasts two spinoffs — Emmy-nominated animated anthology “Diabolical,” which debuted in March, and in-production live-action spinoff “The Boys: Gen V” — and a web series run by the show’s fictional superhero corporation Vought, “Vought News Network: Seven on 7.” The CW is also relying on Kripke’s original IP to work magic for it once more with “The Winchesters,” a prequel to his since-ended hit, “Supernatural.”
