Amazon Announces Premiere Date for 'The Boys' Spinoff 'Gen V' Starring Jaz Sinclair

Amazon has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original drama series Gen V - a spinoff of the hit drama The Boys.

The 8-episode first season will launch on Friday, September 29 with its first three episodes. New episodes will then be released weekly every Friday until the season finale on November 3.

The drama 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.

The drama stars Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas and Marco Pigossi.

Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie and P.J. Byrne will reprise their roles from The Boys as guest stars in the spinoff's first season. Additional guest stars include Clancy Brown, Alexander Calvert and Jason Ritter.

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters developed the drama. They executive produce with Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Pavun Shetty, Ken Levin, Jason Netter, Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson and Michaela Starr. Amazon Studios, Sony Pictures Television, Kripke Enterprises, Point Grey Pictures and Original Film produce.
