Prime Video has officially announced that the title of its newest The Boys spin-off series will be called Gen V and debuted some of the upcoming cast. Gen V will focus on America’s only college for superpowered individuals that is run by Vought International.
Michele Fazekas and Tara Butter are the showrunners. 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, Zak Schwartz, Erica Rosbe, and Michaela Starr will all share executive producer duties along with Brant Engelstein who will co-executive produce.
Set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International), 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. It’s part college show, part Hunger Games—with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.
Meet the cast
The cast includes Jaz Sinclair, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Lizze Broadway, Chance Perdomo, London Thor, Asa Germann, Maddie Phillips, and Derek Luh, who were all excited to introduce themselves in the series title reveal.

Gen V will mark the first live-action spin-off series from The Boys, which just wrapped up its third season and has already been greenlit for a fourth. It follows an animated series called The Boys Presents: Diabolical that debuted in March 2022 and featured a collection of short stories with new and recurring characters that also included super-powered youth.
From some of the most unhinged and maniacal minds in Hollywood today comes Diabolical, a collection of eight irreverent and emotionally shocking animated short films. Featuring stories by Seth Rogen, Kumail Nanjiani, Aisha Tyler, and more, each episode plunges elbow-deep into unseen crevices of The Boys Universe.
Prime Video has not yet revealed when the new series will begin streaming.
