The new spin-off of Amazon’s The Boys takes us to God U, where a new class of students receive super higher learning.
Welcome, new students of Godolkin University! The spin-off of Prime Video’s breakout hit, the superhero satire The Boys, will be premiering in a few days. Gen V takes fans into the new generation of supers as they learn the lessons they need to be tried and true superheroes. Amazon has now released an orientation video for God U, the college that will be the setting for the show. The video features the stars of the show mugging it up for the camera as they parody the cheesy acting in the usual presentation for videos of this nature.
The official synopsis for Gen V from Amazon reads,
“Set in the diabolical world of The Boys, Gen V expands the universe to Godolkin University, the prestigious superhero-only college where students train to be the next generation of heroes – preferably with lucrative endorsements. You know what happens when supes go bad, but not all superheroes start out corrupt. Beyond the typical college chaos of finding oneself and partying, these kids are facing explosive situations…literally. As the students vie for popularity and good grades, it’s clear that the stakes are much higher when super powers are involved. When the group of young supes discover that something bigger and sinister is going on at school, they’re put to the test: will they be the heroes or the villains of their stories?”
