School will soon be in session. The Boys college-based spin-off series Gen V has locked in a release window, and is set to grace Prime Video sometime this September. While its targeted fall premiere was public knowledge, it’s now official that it will roll out just in time for the back-to-school season.
The news comes after Prime Video shared a sneak peek of its upcoming slate comprising the likes of Jack Ryan Season 4, the second seasons of Good Omens, The Wheel of Time, and Reacher, as well as Gen V. Described as “part college show, part Hunger Games“, the highly-anticipated spin-off centres on “the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the school’s top ranking.”
It stars Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau, Lizze Broadway as Emma Shaw, and Sean Patrick Thomas as Polarity alongside Chance Perdomo, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Marco Pigossi. Additionally, fans can expect guest appearances from the cast of The Boys, including Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy, Colby Minifie’s Ashley Barrett, and Jessie T. Usher’s A-Train.
As Godolkin University prepares to open its doors in September, updates regarding the fourth season of The Boys are currently put on hold. Filming wrapped on 12 April, with showrunner Eric Kripke tweeting earlier that a release date depends on when the Hollywood writers’ strike will end. When things pick back up, there will be plenty of content to expect, such as new superheroes Sister Stage and Firecracker and the “most disgusting thing ever” on TV.
