Since Vought International is probably behind the supes school at the center of The Boys spinoff Gen V, it should come as no surprise that sinister things are happening behind the scenes of the institution in a newly released trailer for the series.
While one character warns of evil people at the school, the students band together and show off their powers, even as they struggle with the fact that they’re “all f–ked up.”

As previously announced, The Boys stars Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit and P.J. Byrne will be reprising their roles in the spinoff, and several of them are most likely up to no good in the trailer.
And then there’s all the puppet sheninigans featured in the above preview. (We can’t be the only ones who Googled to see if Ben Edlund was a writer on Gen V, right?)
The college-set offshoot “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,” according to the official synopsis. “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,” the logline continues. “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 cast includes Jaz Sinclair (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Chance Perdomo (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Lizze Broadway (Here and Now), Shelley Conn (Bridgerton), Maddie Phillips (Teenage Bounty Hunters), London Thor (Shameless), Derek Luh (Shining Vale), Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger (The Staircase), Sean Patrick Thomas (For All Mankind) and Marco Pigossi (Brazil’s Invisible City).
