The Boys is getting its own spin-off show centred around a group of young superheroes in college (like when the X-Men franchise focuses on its teen characters, but raunchier), and it's just added some new cast members.

As reported by Deadline, the three new stars joining the project are Aimee Carrero, Maddie Phillips and Shane Paul McGhie.

Aimee and Maddie are probably best known to people from their Netflix projects — Aimee is the voice of She-Ra in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, while Maddie has the main role Sterling Wesley in Teenage Bounty Hunters.

Meanwhile, Shane has appeared in Taraji P Henson's mind-reading comedy What Men Want, and has popped up in things like Criminal Minds and the US version of Shameless. All three will play superheroic students.

The spin-off, which is coming from the same writers and producers who have worked on the parent show, has already cast one of the stars of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina in a big role as another student.

Did we mention that this superhero school is being run by Vought International? Maybe the term 'heroic' might be being used a little bit loosely here.
