One of the highlights of Episode 5 of Season 3 of The Boys on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service is the big musical number featuring Frenchie (Tomer Copone) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara)–it is certainly the most wholesome one of the season. And while this is just one scene in an episode, could there be a whole The Boys musical episode? According to showrunner Eric Kripke, that probably won’t happen.
“I’m a huge fan of musicals,” Kripke told GameSpot. “Especially like old school, Hollywood musicals. And I’d been dying to get like just a huge, classic, innocent musical number into one of my shows, probably since Supernatural, but really blow the doors off it: lots of backup dancers, huge choreography.”
And Kripke and company did that, putting a lot of work into the one song and dance number inside the hospital, which turned out to be one of the more delightful. However, a whole musical episode may be out of the question. “I would love it,” Kripke continued. “I don’t know how to justify it. You know, unless there’s some mass hallucination. The Boys is not a world that you can just like cut to a musical unless everyone’s on drugs. So, I would love to do a full musical episode if I knew how to pull it off, but I don’t know how to pull it off.”
