From The World of The Boys, Prime Video releases Gen V set to rock your socks
Have you ever wanted to know what a ‘supe’ university looks like? Well, get ready because Prime Video’s new series delves into superheroes, starting out as freshmen in this brazen new series.
From the world of The Boys comes Gen V, an upcoming dark comedy live-action series which takes place at America's only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes run by Vought International.
While we meet a new generation of supes, this is no regular coming-of-age story - forget The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles.
Part college drama, part Hunger Games, these youngins are battling for media attention in the hopes of rising through the rankings at Godolkin University to join The 'noble' Seven.
But they’ll have their work cut out for them, as each supe will put their physical and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the school’s highly coveted top ranking and hopefully land a spot on the elite superhero team.
However, they quickly learn their ambition comes with ultimate sacrifices.
And when the school’s dark secrets begin to surface, each student must confront Vought’s ominous history and decide how they want to use their powers.
At the helm of this spin-off is Marie Moreau, played by Jaz Sinclair, a freshman with the superhero power of controlling and weaponising her own blood.
Like every other 18 year old, Marie is eager to please and will stop at nothing to join The Seven.
However, the freshman begins to get sidetracked when Godolkin’s secrets begin to unravel.
Joining Sinclar is Chance Perdomo (Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch), Lizze Broadway (The Rookie), Shelley Conn (Bridgeton), Maddie Phillips (Teenage Bounty Hunters) and Patrick Schwarzenegger (Moxie).
Not to mention, Claudia Doumit, Colby Minifie, and P.J. Byrne, reprising their roles from The Boys.
Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters serve as showrunners and executive producers.
Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Pavun Shetty, Ken Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, Craig Rosenberg, Nelson Cragg, Zak Schwartz, Erica Rosbe, and Michaela Starr also serve as executive producers.
