On March 4, ‘The Boys Presents: Diabolical’ arrived on Amazon Prime Video, eight-episode animated spin-off 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 there are also certain episodes that are considered canon of ‘The Boys’. At least that’s how the showrunner of the main proposal, Eric Kripke, explains it to Variety, referring to the last episode of the spin-off: “The ending is canon, yeah. I think that [Simon Racioppa] He has done 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 it, I was like, ‘This is what happened.'”
‘One plus one equals two’ shows the origins of Patriot in The Seven, specifically, it focuses on his link with 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 felt really connected to the Mothership. That’s the most connected episode”adds Racioppa in turn.
“There is a backstory to really understand the relationship between Patriot and Black Noir and give us a deeper understanding before the premiere of the third season“Kripke concludes.
Kripke also comments on the ‘Rick and Morty’ creator’s chapter, titled ‘An animated short where pissed-off supers kill their parents’. And it seems that this also connects in some way with the third installment: “Even though it’s not canon at all, obviously, I will say that there is this kind of unexpected link between the Justin Roiland episode and the third season. But in a way that I’m not going to reveal.” The third season of ‘The Boys’ will premiere on June 3 on Amazon Prime Video.
