More Gen V Red Band Trailer Teases Boys Spinoff Series. A new sort of school is about to start, filled with carnage, ruthless brutality, and superhuman insanity. 

In the forthcoming The Boys spinoff, Gen V, a group of young adult ‘supes’ are put together and must fight for supremacy in a battle royal-style event, as seen in a new trailer.

Like its predecessor, Gen V will be available on Amazon Prime Video, with the first season premiering later this month.

Gen V | Official Trailer

Like The Boys, Gen V takes place in a universe where superheroes exist, but many have bad traits.

Furthermore, these superheroes did not develop their powers naturally; instead, they were treated to the enigmatic Compound V, a tightly sealed compound created by the Vought Corporation that also serves as the origin for the show’s title.

The teaser claims that, while Gen V is about teens, it will not soften the R-rated mix of gore, sex, and gallows humor developed by the parent series. 

The show’s red band trailer provides an in-depth look at a whole new universe of supes, expanding on previously released clips that included Godolkin University and blasting genitals.

It shines attention on some of these strengthened individuals, such as one with the bizarre ability to use her blood as a weapon, a human Torch-like supe, a person with a laser sight, as well as another with shrinking capabilities, as introduced by Clancy Brown as Professor Rich “Brink” Brinkerhoff, who taught several big names within the Seven.

The show will undoubtedly be crazy, as is evident when Derek Wilson joins the cast. The Future Man star makes a brief appearance in the new teaser and is rumored to be portraying Tek-Knight, a character from the comic book The Boys who has yet to make his live-action debut.
