We finally have a trailer for The Boys spin-off Gen V - and it looks like the diabolical superhero action is far from over.


The upcoming Prime Video series will focus on a group of super-powered youngsters being put to the test at Godolkin University School of Crimefighting, with a new instalment of superhero action.

While we'll be meeting a new cast, we're also set to be reunited with some old friends (and foes) from The Boys, with the recent trailer confirming the returns of in-universe film director Adam Bourke (PJ Byrne), A-Train (Jessie T Usher), comms worker Ashley (Colby Minifie) and politician Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit).

Prime Video has also confirmed the timeline of the new show. Gen V will actually take place in between season 3 and 4 of The Boys. So, in their words: "the kiddos at God U all saw Homelander laser a guy’s head off to the sound of thunderous applause."

Lovely stuff!

Gen V: Cast of The Boys spin-off

We're going to see a mostly new cast for Gen V, with the series focusing on a group of youngsters we've not met before, taking the focus away from Hughie (Jack Quaid), Butcher (Karl Urban) and co.

However, there will be some familiar faces, in the form of A-Train (Jessie T Usher), Ashley Barrett (Colby Minifie) and Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles).

Here's the full cast:

  • Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau
  • Chance Perdomo as Andre Anderson
  • Lizze Broadway as Emma Shaw
  • Maddie Phillips as Cate Dunlap
  • Derek Luh and London Thor as Jordan
  • Asa Germann as Sam Riordan
  • Shelley Conn
  • Patrick Schwarzenegger as Jason/Golden Boy
  • Sean Patrick Thomas as Polarity
  • Marco Pigossi as Doctor Edison Cardosa
  • Jason Ritter
  • Alexander Calvert
  • Clancy Brown as Richard "Rich Brink" Brinkerhoff
  • Jessie T Usher as Reggie Franklin/A-Train
  • Colby Minifie as Ashley Barrett
  • PJ Byrne as Adam Bourke
  • Jensen Ackles as Ben/BCL RED/Soldier Boy

Some of the new characters' powers sound pretty menacing, with Jaz able to control her own blood, and Cate able to push people to do anything she commands using the touch of her hand.

Meanwhile, Luke is able to set his whole body on fire.

Just how the old characters will fit in with the new remains to be seen, but we're sure there's going to be a whole lot of shockers to keep us going. Just how we like it!

Gen V: What's the plot for The Boys spin-off?

Gen V will follow the new group of youngsters as they're tested in a 'Hunger Games-style' competition and it sounds, as expected, absolutely brutal.

An official synopsis reads: "From the world of The Boys comes Gen V, which 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."

A newly released teaser introduces some of our new heroes, including Jaz Sinclair's Marie Moreau - and the brutal evils they're set to face.
