Amazon is developing a live-action spinoff series based on the satirical superhero mayhem of The Boys, and it will center on a superhero university. The Boys' willingness to use crude language and graphic violence suggests that university life is fraught with peril. Especially considering how amped up and disruptive every student is going to be.
Gen V will follow the critically acclaimed third season of The Boys, which introduced the vulgar Captain America parody character Soldier Boy and his connections to the series's main antagonist, Homelander. Gen V's young group of heroes will draw influence from Marvel's X-Men, and the show will incorporate stories from the dramatic conclusion of Season 3.

What's Gen V All About?
Gen V takes place at America's only college just for superheroes. It is run by Vought International, a multibillion-dollar superhero business run by the Homelander.
The official summary on Amazon says that the spinoff is “A rude, R-rated show about how hormone-driven, competitive Supes push their physical, sexual, and moral limits as they compete for the best contracts in the best cities.
It's like a mix of a college show and The Hunger Games, with all of The Boys' heart, satire, and raunch.” Tell us less, Amazon!
