Following the departures of Aimee Carrero and Shane Paul McGhie, Deadline brings word that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina alum Chance Perdomo has officially been cast for one of the leading roles in Prime Video’s first untitled The Boys spin-off. This marks his first TV major project in more than a year since the Kiernan Shipka-led supernatural series had ended its Netflix run.
Specific details about his character are still being kept under wraps, but Perdomo will be taking over the role that was recently vacated by McGhie. The outlet notes that this isn’t a complete recasting as the character had already undergone creative changes after showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters replaced Craig Rosenberg in the project.

The Boys spin-off will be set in America’s only college for young adult superheroes, ineffectually referred to as supes, run by Vought International and is being described as “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive supes as they put their physical, sexual and moral boundaries to the test,” blending the pitfalls of a college series with the gritty competitive nature of The Hunger Games and heart, satire and raunch of the main series.
The project will be loosely inspired by the G-Men, a parody of the X-Men from The Boys comic book series created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It currently stars Lizze Broadway, Jaz Sinclair, Maddie Phillips, and Reina Hardesty.
