The official premiere date for Gen V has been revealed, with a new teaser for The Boys spin-off series coming next week
While we still don’t know when the fourth season of The Boys will drop, Prime Video has announced the official release of Gen V, the upcoming spin-off series. The first three episodes of Gen V will premiere on Prime Video on September 29th, followed by weekly episodes leading up to the season finale on November 3rd.
Prime Video also released a new Gen V poster, which features Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau, who has the ability to manipulate blood.
The streaming service also announced that a new Gen V teaser trailer will be released on Monday, so be sure to keep an eye out for that!
“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,” reads the official Gen V synopsis. “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.“
The cast of Gen V includes Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi. The series also features guest stars Clancy Brown and Jason Ritter, as well as appearances from Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, and P.J. Byrne, reprising their roles from The Boys.
Eric Kripke has previously teased that Gen V would include a few crossovers with The Boys, both in terms of characters and events. “There’s definitely crossover, and we’re doing our best to design a universe that sees some of the issues and storylines in Season 3 hand off to the first season in Varsity,” Kripke said. “Like there’s a presidential campaign happening in the background of that season, and there’s certain things that are happening at that school that are both in reaction to Season 3 of The Boys. There’s Soldier Boy, etcetera, but also some new storylines that are happening in that season of the spinoff that we have to pick up and take into Season 4 of the show.“
Once again, Gen V will premiere on Prime Video on September 29th.
