The Boys’ highly-anticipated spinoff series focused on supes in college finally reveals its title, Gen V.
After The Boys’ incredible Season 3 finale on Prime Video and an Emmy nomination for The Boys Presents: Diabolical episode “John And Sun-Hee,” the team behind the hit series just keeps the good news coming by announcing the official title of their spinoff series. We’ve been following the story for a while and the main thing we know is that the series would be focused on a superhero college. So all the grit, humor, gore, and societal reflection of The Boys will now also be fueled by raging hormones, young adult angst, and the experimenting with drugs and sex of the college experience. This isn’t your parents’ The Boys, this is Gen V.
Gen V – The Boys do College
Gen V stars Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi. A diverse set of young super-powered college students who attend an institution of higher education run by Vough International. Students will get to know themselves and others as discover their mental, physical, sexual, and moral boundaries competing against each other for contracts in the best cities.
