The Boys Spinoff Series 'Gen V' Is 'Part College Show, Part Hunger Games'

More supes are headed to Prime Video, as the streamer announced the name of its upcoming “The Boys” spinoff: “Gen V.”

The title, of course, is a play on Gen Z and is a reference to Compound V, the serum that gives those who take it special powers.

A press release announcing the name also came with a new logline for the series, which will take place at “America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International).” The show is described as “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities.”

“It’s part college show, part ‘Hunger Games’ — with all the heart, satire, and raunch of ‘The Boys,'” promises the release.

The show stars Patrick Schwarzenegger, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” alums Jaz Sinclair and Chance Perdomo, Sean Patrick Thomas, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann and Marco Pigossi — many of whom participated in an announcement video for the series on Friday.

“I am super excited to be a part of Gen V,” said Luh, as Sinclair echoed his sentiments, adding, “and I’m so excited for you to watch it.”

“It’s got everything ‘The Boys’ has, the intensity, the grit, the humor,” added German, before Broadway teased, “it’s gonna be a roller coaster … filled with blood, guts and everything else.”

“It’s f—ed up, you’re gonna like it,” added Perdomo. Promised Schwarzenegger: “This will rock your socks off.”

The show is currently in production.
