Amazon finally releases the first official trailer for the upcoming show Gen V, a spin-off of the popular The Boys series. The preview clip was shown at the CCXP in Brazil, with additional cast Clancy Brown, Alexander Calvert, Jason Ritter, Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, and P.J. Byrne.
Gen V is a college-set series that explores the lives of the hormonal Supes who compete for the highest rank at America’s only college for young adult superheroes. The trailer looked as bloody and gruesome as the original series.
The Boys Spin-Off Gen V’s Trailer Is Bloody As Hell
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s Jaz Sinclair leads the series, and the plot is just as gripping as The Boys. These competitive Supes are put to the test, pushing their physical, moral, and sexual boundaries to see who will win and who will bite the dust.
Based on the trailer alone, fans could speculate that it will involve bloodshed, as many characters have been covered in red while some were scraping body organs.
Gen V will premiere on Prime Video this 2023. Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios will produce the show in cooperation with Kripke Enterprises, Point Grey Pictures, and Original Film.
The upcoming TV series also includes Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi.
Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters will spearhead the TV series as showrunners, while 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 serve as executive producers.

Looks like Just more of the boys with a new cast, that’s exactly what I wanted from this spin off

Action scenes seems dope but the most important part for me is the writing. As long as we get well written characters like in The Boys then I’ll be sold

As exciting as the trailer reveals, Gen V Season 1 is expected to arrive before the release of The Boys Season 4. There is no confirmed date as of yet, but the series will premiere on the small screen next year.
