The makers of The Boys’ and the cinematic universe forming in its wake continues to grow. Pavun Shetty, a producer on both series, believes the franchise can “capitalise” on “a lot of different” source material, while stressing the importance of picking the right story to adapt.
“We’re lucky that fans love the show so much and there’s real anticipation for Gen V, and there’s a lot of characters to build upon. There’s a lot of different areas from the books across time periods that we could really capitalise on,” Shetty shared in an interview with ComicBook. “But, I think the most important thing for us there is that we are really diligent and thoughtful about what we do next.”
“We’d love to have multiple shows, but I think audiences are really savvy and sophisticated, and I think they understand when there’s a reason a show is coming out for the proper reasons and there’s a real story to tell and it feels of the same world, but different,” Shetty said.
“I think they can sniff out when it’s just a show for a show’s sake, and so we are really thinking about what the next show could be and how it can be thoughtful and fit into the universe and feel like it’s a puzzle piece that fits in with everything else, but is not just a show for a show’s sake.”
