The Boys college-based spin-off series Gen V has received its first look trailer, and it’s filled with all the blood and superpowers you’d expect from The Boys. Oh, and also what appears to be a gory version of Sesame Street.
Gen V, which has been described as “part college show, part Hunger Games,” takes place at Vought Internationa’s Godolkin University, the only college that is made exclusively for young adult superheroes.

— Gen V (@genv) December 3, 2022 Throughout its episodes, which will debut in 2023, the series will explore “the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the school’s top ranking.”
Gen V will star Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi. The spin-off’s cast will also be bolstered by Clancy Brown, Alexander Calvert, and Jason Ritter.
Furthermore, the trailer confirmed guest appearances from The Boys’ Jessie T. Usher (A-Train), Colby Minifie (Ashley Barrett), and P.J. Byrne (Adam Bourke), who will be reprising their roles from the main series.
Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters are serving as showrunners and executive producers. 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, Zak Schwartz, Erica Rosbe, and Michaela Starr will also step into executive producer roles.
This new series will hopefully help with the wait for The Boys Season 4, which currently has no premiere date. However, Prime Video has revealed the new cast members for the upcoming season and confirmed that Simon Pegg will be returning.
