An upcoming college spin-off to The Boys has been given its official title: Gen V. According to Collider, the official synopsis describes Gen V 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.”
Prime Video confirmed the news via their official Twitter page with a video announcement from the cast. “I’m so excited to be a part of this show, and I’m so excited for you guys to watch it,” Jaz Sinclair opens the video, adding: “There’s love and beautiful relationships, and tons of action and superheroes.”
“With lots of hormones and drama and mystery,” Maddie Philips continued. Lizze Broadway added that the spin-off will be “a roller coaster. It’s gonna be filled with blood, guts, and everything else,”

“It’s got everything The Boys has – the intensity, the grit, the humor,” Asa Germann said, while Patrick Schwarzenegger (son of Arnold Schwarzenegger himself) teased that the show will “rock your socks off.”
“Superheroes, college… what could go wrong?” London Thor quipped. However, Chance Perdomo summarises it best with a sentence that gets to the point. Perdomo called the spin-off “fucked up. You’re gonna like it.”
The Boys’ creator Eric Kripke, alongside Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and comic book series writer Garth Ennis will executive produce the spin-off alongside showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, who’ve previously worked on Law & Order: SVU and Marvel’s Agent Carter. Shelley Conn, Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi, absent from the announcement video, will further star in Gen V.
All three seasons are available to watch now on Amazon Prime. For more The Boys content, make sure to take a look at the Season 3 finale review.
