'The Boys' College-Set Spin-off 'Gen V' Gets Very Bloody First Teaser
Plus, find out which 'The Boys' stars will appear on the new drama.
The Boys universe just keeps expanding, with its next spin-off being set at a college for young superheroes. Titled Gen V, the new drama is set to debut on Amazon Prime Video in 2023, but the streamer has already released a first look at the show via a minute-long teaser, which you can watch below.
Like The Seven (the core group of Vought International's superheroes on The Boys), the superheroes in training on Gen V are going to be highly competitive with each other, testing physical, sexual, and moral boundaries as they learn how to exploit their abilities. There may not be a superhero orgy (yet?), but already there is a lot of blood and at least one thing The Boys doesn't have: puppet murder.
The Boys, which is based on the comic book of the same name, comes from creator and showrunner Eric Kripke and has a Metascore of 77 from its first three seasons. Season 4 is in production now. The first spin-off, The Boys Presents: Diabolical, premiered in March 2022 and earned a Metascore of 70; it is a collection of short animated stories set in the world of the flagship series but told through different genres and animation styles.
Kripke executive produces Gen V alongside 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, Michaela Starr, and showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters.
The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and Amazon Studios, in association with Kripke Enterprises, Point Grey Pictures, and Original Film.
