Here’s the official synopsis for the boundary-pushing The Boys spinoff that left executive producer Seth Rogen asking, “Dear God, what are they doing over there?”:
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.
Gen V premieres September 29 on Amazon Prime Video.
