A Glimpse into Godolkin University
Gen V transports viewers to Godolkin University, an elite institution exclusively for superheroes. Here, young supes are molded into the next wave of heroes, with the hope of securing profitable endorsements.

Amidst the usual college dilemmas of self-discovery and revelry, these students grapple with the added pressure of their superpowers. As they navigate the treacherous waters of academia and popularity, a sinister plot unfolds within the university’s walls. The burning question remains: will these young supes emerge as heroes or villains?
The series boasts a star-studded cast featuring Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, and many more. Additionally, Gen V will see guest appearances from renowned actors Clancy Brown and Jason Ritter. Fans of The Boys will be thrilled to witness Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and P.J. Byrne reprising their iconic roles.
The creative minds steering Gen V include showrunners and executive producers Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters. The series also benefits from the expertise of executive producers such as Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and others. Produced by Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios, the series collaborates with Kripke Enterprises, Point Grey Pictures, and Original Film.

From the world of The Boys comes Gen V, which explores the training of the first generation of superheroes to know about Compound V, and that their powers were injected into them, rather than God-given. These young, competitive heroes put their physical and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the school’s highly coveted top ranking. They quickly come to learn that ambition comes with sacrifice, and the difference between right and wrong is not as clear as they once believed. When the university’s dark secrets come to light, the students must come to grips with what type of heroes they are going to become.
