On the heels of wrapping The Boys season 3 with a bombshell of parental proportions, Prime Video announced a spin-off show with an all-new cast of Supes in college. GEN V expands The Boys universe, and the streaming platform released a video introducing the largely unknown cast featuring Patrick Schwarzenegger and Sean Patrick Thomas. Meet the new faces of Gen V.
Gen V is is currently in production starring Jaz Sinclair and Chance Perdomo who are best known from the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, in addition to Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi.
The announcement promises an irreverent and raunchy R-rated spin-off that's partly HUNGER GAMES with hormonal Supes competing for the top spot in a college setting. The university is run by Voight International for Supes only so expect amoral superheroes and perhaps the future Homelander or a Starlight.
The Boys creator and showrunner Eric Kripke is behind the show as well as Seth Rogen and partner Evan Goldberg. Michele Fazekas (Agent Carter, Law & Order: SVU) and Tara Butters (Dollhouse, Hawaii Five-0) serve as showrunners and executive producers. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and Amazon Studios, in association with Kripke Enterprises, Point Grey Pictures, and Original Film. Loreli Alanís serves as executive in charge for Point Grey Pictures.

Set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International), Gen V is 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. It’s part college show, part Hunger Games—with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.
