As The Boys continues to become a huge success after wrapping its third season last summer, the team behind the hit series has also been working on a college-set spinoff series titled Gen V which will center on a younger ensemble within The Boys universe. Now, we have a major update on the progress of the highly-anticipated spinoff.
Last Friday, the official Twitter account of The Boys announced that production for Gen V has finally wrapped. "Yea, we’re wrappin GEN V production. No, we ain’t tellin ya when it’s coming out yet," they wrote in the caption along with the photos of the cast doing different poses and celebrating the end of filming.
Set in a Vought International-owned college exclusively for young superheroes, Gen V 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."
The cast includes Jaz Sinclair, Lizzie Broadway, Chance Perdomo, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Shelley Conn, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi. Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters serve as the showrunners while Eric Kripke (the showrunner of the main series) is involved as one of the executive producers.
It is exciting to hear that production for the spinoff series has ended as it is an indication that they have one step left before it airs next year. This update also comes as filming for the fourth season of the parent series recently started. We should be hearing more news about this spinoff in the coming months.
Gen V is slated to premiere sometime in 2023 on Prime Video. You can check the details about the fourth season of The Boys here.
