Gen V: the Plot
“Gen V is set at America’s only college exclusively for superheroes, run by Vought International. 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 school will be called Godolkin University School of Crimefighting. It is likely to be named after John Godolkin, a character from The Boys comics who is a very dark version of Professor Xavier from the X-Men series.
The Boys' Showrunner Eric Kripke Says,
“Just like Mork & Mindy separated from Happy Days — which is an insane and true fact – our spinoff will exist in the Vought Cinematic Universe yet have its very own tone and style. It’s our bid for a college show with an ensemble of fascinating, complicated, and at times deadly Young Supes. Michele and Tara are rocking geniuses, we’re happy to have them steer this ship and grateful to Sony and Amazon for the opportunity. We love this show and can not wait to see it. Also, Baywatch Nights separated from Baywatch, and it had vampires. Vampires! “

Kripke Goes on to Tease:
“There’s definitely crossover, and we’re doing our best to design a universe that sees some of the issues and storylines in Season 3 handoff to the first season in Varsity. Like there’s a presidential campaign happening in the background of that season, and there are certain things that are happening at that school that are both in reaction to Season 3 of The Boys. There’s Soldier Boy, etcetera, but also some new storylines that are happening in that season of the spinoff that we have to pick up and take into Season 4 of the show.”
