Seven on 7 with Cameron Coleman is a fictional news/opinion program that takes place on the (also fictional) Vought News Network. The segments will air on the 7th of every month and bridge the gap between Season 2 and Season 3 of The Boys (which we still don’t have a premiere date for).
Showrunner Erik Kripe expanded on the series further, telling Entertainment Weekly:
Since the very start of The Boys, we’ve seen Vought’s propaganda arm — I mean, news channel — VNN. We’ll be digging deeper into those fair and balanced patriots next season, so as a teaser, we’re introducing ‘Seven on 7’ with VNN’s biggest star Cameron Coleman. The episodes are in-world canon, serving up brand-new information that bridges the story gap between season 2 and 3. So enjoy the hot takes and catheter commercials, just like your parents do!
In case that last dig flew over your head, Seven on 7 is a not-at-all-subtle parody of Fox News/Tucker Carlson — right down to a mid-segment commercial featuring a spot on impersonation of Mike Lindell, aka the crazy My Pillow Guy who just proclaimed that Trump is going to be reinaugurated as president by August 13).
The first episode (embedded below) is mostly filled with jokes and references that fans of the The Boys will definitely appreciate. We do get one little nugget of new info, though — Hughie has been appointed to the position of senior analyst within the Federal Bureau of Superhuman Affairs by Congresswoman/secret supervillain Victoria Neuman.
Poor Hughie likely has no idea he’s working for a power hungry sociopath who likes to make people’s heads explode…or maybe he’s figured it out and is trying to stop her from within the congresswoman’s office. Whatever the case, it should be interesting to see how things play out next season.
In the meantime, however, these ‘Seven on 7’ segments will be all types of fun to watch.
