This writer hasn’t watched The Boys, but did grow interested in the spinoff, Gen V, which will also air on Prime Video. Granted, the reason that we cared in the beginning was because of Shane Paul McGhie being cast, but like a few people in the show, he left and here we are.
We’re still interested because we were intrigued, is because of series cast that includes Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi. Gen V also features guest stars Clancy Brown and Jason Ritter, as well as appearances from Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, and P.J. Byrne, reprising their roles from The Boys.
The series, “explores the training of the first generation of superheroes to know about Compound V, and that their powers were injected into them, rather than God-given. These young, competitive heroes put their physical and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the school’s highly coveted top ranking. They quickly come to learn that ambition comes with sacrifice, and the difference between right and wrong is not as clear as they once believed. When the university’s dark secrets come to light, the students must come to grips with what type of heroes they are going to become.”
Prime Video debuted the first look at key art for the series with a poster of Jaz Sinclair and of the Homelander Statue. See both below –
The new series will premiere on September 29th, with its first three episodes.
