On Wednesday, Amazon released the first full trailer for The Boys: Diabolical, a series of eight animated shorts (12-14 minutes) that take place in the same universe as The Boys. Before watching, you should be aware that it’s very explicit and definitely not safe for work…so pretty much exactly what you expect from the franchise.
All eight episodes of the series will stream exclusively on Prime Video beginning March 4. We’ll also be doing a mostly spoiler free review a few days beforehand to help you decide if it’s worth watching or not.
In the meantime, Amazon put out a press release detailing each episode’s title, writers/directors, and animation style, which you can check out below.
