'The Boys' Sets In-Universe Video Series To Bridge Gap Between Seasons 2 And 3

Fans of The Boys will have some new videos to look forward to as they wait for the third season.

The popular Amazon show is releasing "Seven on 7 on VNN," based on the in-universe Vought News Network, a propaganda-style "news" network that praises the likes of evil "superheroes" like Homelander, who promote right-wing, Nazi ideologies.

The videos will be released every seventh day of each month for seven months, totaling seven stories plus a commercial. Along with the new videos, the "Seven on 7" VNN anchor Cameron Coleman, played by Matthew Edison, will be added to the series in season 3. You can watch the first video below.

Also, in life-imitating-art style, the videos will cement the new Vought International social media push. Fans can keep up with the Fox News-esque channel on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter via @VoughtINTL. Fans should note that everything posted to the official Vought channel will not break the fourth wall of The Boys universe, "even as real-world and in-world blend and overlap in fun, surprising ways," according to the official description.

“Since the very start of The Boys, we’ve seen Vought’s propaganda arm — I mean, news channel -- VNN," said The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke. "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 Seasons 2 and 3. So enjoy the hot takes and catheter commercials, just like your parents do!”

The Boys stars Laz Alonzo, Jessie T. Usher, Nathan Mitchell, Aya Cash, Karl Urban, Antony Star, Chase Crawford, Karen Fukuhara, and Dominique McElligott. A spinoff focusing on the superhero college run by Vought International has been greenlit. The currently untitled spinoff 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. Part college show, part Hunger Games -- with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys."
