The Boys Spin-off Series Is Called Gen V, Cast Is Revealed

Amazon has released the first details on the new show.


Season 3 has wrapped up for The Boys, and there's been talks of another spin-off show in the works. Today, Amazon revealed the cast and plot for this project. It's called Gen V.

Taking place in a college run by Vought International, the show follows the superpowered students throughout their studies. "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," reads the official description. "It's part college show, part Hunger Games--with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys."

The upcoming show doesn't have a premiere date yet, but it will star Jaz Sinclair (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Chance Perdomo (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Lizze Broadway (Bones), Shelley Conn (Bridgerton), Maddie Phillips (Teenage Bounty Hunters), London Thor (Shameless), Derek Luh (Shining Vale), Asa Germann (Caviar), Patrick Schwarzenegger (The Staircase), Sean Patrick Thomas (Barbershop), and Marco Pigossi (Invisible City).

Gen V will have Michele Fazekas (Emergence) and Tara Butters (Emergence) serving as showrunners and executive producers. Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and a host of others will also service as EPs as well. The show is produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and Amazon Studios. This will be the second spin-off from The Boys, with the animated anthology series Diabolical debuting on Prime Video earlier this year.

Season 3 of The Boys wrapped up in July. Very quickly, Season 4 of the hit Prime Video series was announced. You can take a better look at some behind-the-scenes moments from the past season in GameSpot's coverage of The Boys below.

In GameSpot's review of Season 3 of The Boys, Mat Elfring said, "The Boys continues to be one of the best superhero TV shows. It's a series that knows its identity and leans in hard to it every single season. It continues to grow and evolve the world it lives in without losing that identity either. The cast is delivering some of the best performances of the series here as well. The Boys Season 3 is a must-watch for summer viewing."
