College can be a bloody mess, both figuratively and literally, but what if you added superpowers into the mix? Prime Video’s new series, “Gen V,” is about to take you on a wild ride through the drama, gore, and mystery of a superhero-only school. This thrilling show acts as a spinoff to the highly successful, action-packed comedy “The Boys” and is set to premiere on Thursday, September 28, at 8 p.m. ET, exclusively on the Prime Video streaming platform.
“Gen V” promises to deliver just as much gore, violence, drama, and, of course, mystery as a new generation of superhuman students claw (and probably even kill) their way to the top rankings of Godolkin University, the prestigious supes-only school in America. If you’re a fan of “The Boys,” you’re in for a treat because this series, like its predecessor, is a Prime Original. This means you’ll need a Prime membership or a Prime Video subscription to enjoy the action. However, Amazon is offering a 30-day free trial for new users, so you can dive into this intense world without any initial cost.
Unlike “The Boys,” which focused on a group of vigilantes, Gen V introduces a new cast of characters who are students striving to make it to the big leagues, hoping for a chance to join “The Seven” alongside iconic superheroes like Homelander, A-Train, and The Deep. But as these students train and chase their dreams, they soon stumble upon sinister secrets lurking within their school’s walls. Now, they must decide whether they want to become the heroes or villains of their own stories.
