"You're f*cked up. I'm f*cked up. The one thing that is really apparent now, is that we're all f*cked up."
Based on what we see in this new red-band trailer for Prime Video's upcoming The Boys spin-off, Gen V, we'd say that is a pretty accurate assessment.
The latest teaser for the series features plenty of new footage, as protagonist Marie Moreau (Jaz Sinclair) and her classmates attempt to adapt to life in the prestigious Godolkin University, which trains young Supes and teaches them to harness/control their abilities.
Unfortunately, the campus seems to be far from the "safe space" it's been sold as.
In addition to some seriously bloody carnage on display (we now know why that chick was covered in blood in the initial announcement spot), the trailer gives us a better idea of what to expect from the plot, as the students seemingly uncover some kind of conspiracy involving mysterious Supe experiments.
Check out the promo below, and keep an eye out for a few familiar faces from The Boys.
Gen V is partially based on the "We Gotta Go Now" story arc from The Boys comic series, written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Darick Robertson. The show takes place at the same time as The Boys season 4, and Jensen Ackles and Jessie T. Usher are expected to reprise their respective roles as Soldier Boy and A-Train, along with cast mates Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and PJ Byrne.
In Gen V, the students at Godolkin will be "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.”
Gen V also stars Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas and Marco Pigossi. The series guest stars Clancy Brown and Jason Ritter, while Jessie T. Usher, Claudia Doumit, Colby Minifie, and P.J. Byrne will reprise their roles from The Boys.
The first three episodes of Gen V arrive on Prime Video on September 29, with the rest of the series releasing weekly every Friday.
