The boys college spin-off series Generation V released its first dramatic trailer, and it looks just as thrilling and gruesome as the original.
Starring Jaz Sinclair, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Chance Perdomo, London Thor, Asa Germann, Maddie Phillips and Derek Luh as college students for Supes, Generation V has been described as “part college show, part hunger games“.
“Welcome to Godolkin University, a safe space for you to thrive,” a voiceover says as the trailer opens showing a golden statue of Homelander on University grounds.

As we see in the trailer, Jaz Sinclair’s character superpower seems to come from her hands in the form of two flailing, silent, bloody appendages – think Spider-Man’s web shooters, but far more grotesque.
Also featured in the trailer are actors Sean Patrick Thomas, Marco Pigossi, Clancy Brown, Alexander Calvert, and Jason Ritter who appears alongside a puppet who will later be beheaded.
Resuming their roles as The boysJessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, and PJ Byrne all make appearances in the trailer.

By the official summary: “Generation V takes place at America’s only college exclusively for superheroes, run by Vought International. Generation V is an irreverent R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonally competitive Supes as they test their physical, sexual and moral limits, competing for the best contracts in the best cities.
“It’s partly a college show, partly hunger games – with all the heart, satire and raunch of The boys.”
The boys showrunner Eric Kripke previously said from the spin-off series: “We really got into, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if we could take superheroes and do one of the most realistic college shows ever?’ Because they’re not made very often.”
Generation V will be presented in 2023. The boys seasons 1-3 are streaming on First videowhile sseason 4 is in production.
