"In a landscape saturated with superhero shows, The Boys is the next evolution in this popular genre", Amazon Studios' head of scripted series Sharon Tal Yguado said in a statement.

The original comic was created by Garth Ennis (who also created the Preacher comic Amazon, Rogen and Goldberg previously adapted) and Darick Robertson, with Eric Kripke (Supernatural, Timeless) serving as showrunner for the eight-episode run.

The book, published between 2006 and 2012 and lasting for 72 issues, takes place in a world where superheroes existed - only majority are hopelessly corrupted and made reckless by their celebrity status.

Now Amazon is looking to move forward and the announcement that The Boys is happening comes after a nine-year journey for the development team to make it a reality. Unbelievable began courting the series by ordering a script from writer Eric Kripke.

Other executive producers on the show are by Kripke, Goldberg, Rogen, Original Film's Neal H Moritz (Prison Break), Ori Marmur (Preacher) and Pavun Shetty (New Girl), as well as Point Grey Pictures' James Weaver (Preacher).

Sony Pictures Television Studios and Amazon Studios co-produce the series with production set to begin in the spring of 2018 for a 2019 release.

The Boys marks the second comic book adaptation from Rogen and Goldberg who also worked with Ennis in bringing his comic book Preacher to AMC which was recently renewed for a third season.

There is no word yet on an anticipated premiere date or who could be cast for the series, but all of that will come out in time, and we're excited to be covering this show that could help launch Amazon Video into a better position to compete with Netflix and Hulu.
