London Thor (Shameless) has joined the cast of Prime Video’s upcoming spinoff of The Boys as a lead, replacing Reina Hardesty weeks after the actress’ exit, which Deadline exclusively revealed.
Thor is the latest actor to join the untitled spinoff in a recasting amid a number of recent departures. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘s Chance Perdomo came to the project replacing Shane Paul McGhie, who departed the series with Aimee Carrero and Hardesty.
Also joining the cast as series regulars are Derek Luh (Shining Vale), newcomer Asa Germann and Shelley Conn (Bridgerton). They will join previously announced cast members Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway and Maddie Phillips. The series hails from showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters.
The Untitled The Boys spinoff, which is now in production, is 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, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. It’s part college show, part Hunger Games— with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.
Fazekas and Butters executive produce alongside Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Pavun Shetty, Ken Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, Craig Rosenberg, who wrote the original script, Zak Schwartz, Erica Rosbe and Michaela Starr. Brant Engelstein is co-executive producer.
The series will be produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and Amazon Studios, in association with Kripke Enterprises, Point Grey Pictures, and Original Film. Loreli Alanís will serve as executive in charge for Point Grey Pictures.
