Prime Video has released a new trailer for The Boys spin-off series, Gen V. The clip introduces viewers to Marie Moreau, a young girl with the ability to manipulate blood, who recently enrolled at the Godolkin University School for Crimefighting. While she may not enjoy the same level of fame as Golden Boy, Jordan, or Andre, Marie wants to help people and save lives.
As the story unfolds, Marie and her fellow students stumble upon a secret known as “the Woods” and uncover the existence of cruel experiments. This revelation leads Marie on a perilous journey to expose the dark underbelly of Godolkin’s operations, making her a prime target for the formidable Vought International.
Since Gen V is deeply entrenched in The Boys’ mythos, viewers should expect a generous dose of violence.
Developed by Craig Rosenberg, Evan Goldberg, and Eric Kripke, The Boys spin-off series Gen V is based on The Boys comic book story arc “We Gotta Go Now” by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. The series intertwines with the events of The Boys season three, which revealed that supes are not born but are the result of Vought injecting babies with Compound V.
When To Watch Gen V
So, in addition to the usual college challenges, these young people are grappling with the unsettling knowledge that their parents essentially handed over their bodies to a corporation for use in scientific experiments. The Boys spin-off series, Gen V, will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 29.
The Boys spin-off series, Gen V, boats a stellar cast. Jaz Sinclair takes on the role of Marie Moreau, who has a tragic past that haunts her every move. Chance Perdomo stars as Andre Anderson, a supe with the ability to manipulate metal. As a popular figure within the Gen V universe, Andre’s journey is bound to be filled with twists and turns.
Lizze Broadway brings Emma Meyer, a half-inch-sized supe who can grow to regular size, to life in The Boys spin-off Gen V. Maddie Phillips plays Cate Dunlap, who can sense and understand the thoughts and emotions of others. Derek Luh and London Thor appear as Jordan Li, who can shift between genders. Asa Germann steps into the role of Sam, who has superhuman strength.
Shelley Conn portrays Indira Shetty, the superintendent of Godolkin University. Unlike the super-powered individuals around her, Indira relies on her intellect and leadership skills to navigate the complex world of supe education. In The Boys spin-off, Gen V also features recurring characters played by some familiar faces.
