First Look at The Boys Spinoff: Gen V! – WATCH

The Boys Spinoff series finally got a title – and it’s called Gen V! Let’s find out more about it!

The cast of The Boys college spin-off recorded a video message as the R-rated supe series continues production on its first season, confirming that its official name is Gen V. Given that its story follows an entire generation of kids who grew up suped up on Compound V, this makes sense.

“It’s f—ed up. You’re gonna like it,” says actor Chance Perdomo (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina).

“It’s got everything The Boys has: the intensity, the grit, the humor,” newcomer Asa Germann adds.

“It’s gonna be a roller coaster,” says Gen V star Lizze Broadway. “kIt’s gonna be filled with blood, guts, and everything else.”

Jaz Sinclair, who plays a character named Marie, reveals that the show also has “love and beautiful relationships, and tons of action and superheroes.”

‘Gen V’: ‘The Boys’ Spinoff Opens Season 2 Writers Room With Michele Fazekas As Showrunner

Prime Video is yet to release a premiere date for Gen V, its anticipated superhero college spinoff series, which will launch this year. While it’s early for a renewal decision, I hear the streamer is happy with the first season, and a writing room is starting soon in anticipation of a Season 2 pickup. It will be led by executive producer Michele Fazekas, who I hear will serve as sole showrunner.

Fazekas was co-showrunner on Season 1 alongside her longtime writing partner Tara Butters who I hear is taking a break from the business for some family time. The separation was amicable, and Butters intends to return to writing-producing at some point in the future, Deadline reports.

What’s The Boys Spinoff Series Gen V about?

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

Broadway plays Emma her mother is a renowned Supe and although Emma has tried not to let this legacy define her life it clearly has. Emma is hiding a scandalous secret about who she really is and worries if she is discovered that people will be repulsed be her. Sinclair will play Marie Moreau, as the Caribbean’s first and only superhero. Not to be deterred Marie’s flippant and derisive sense of humor cuts straight through her rivals. Marie is surrounded by malevolent forces and she will find herself compromising her values in order to pursue the ever-elusive American dream

“I think the actors are, across the board, really appealing and complicated,” Kripke says. “It’s a fascinating experiment because it really is so different than The Boys. It’s the same universe, same tone, lots of dick jokes, and there’s some mystery elements. But at the end of the day, it’s a college show, whereas The Boys is a cop show. It’s just weird to be like, ‘You like NCIS? Well, here’s Felicity.'”

Patrick Schwarzenegger, who also appears in the title announcement video with other cast members London Thor and Maddie Phillips, previously described the spin-off as Euphoria with superheroes.

“I think it’s funnier than Euphoria, which is a nightmarish hellscape of teenage angst and heroin in the school hallways,” Kripke tells EW. “I am hopeful that we’re capturing something honest about what it’s like to be a kid today and to be a kid at college. I love that The Boys, underneath all the superhero trappings, has a reality to it. And I’m hoping [Gen V] captures that.”

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters serve as showrunners on Gen V. A premiere date has not been set.
