The series will be focused on a college exclusively for America’s young superheroes. Of course, it will be run by Vought International. The show will follow the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test while competing for the school’s top ranking.

The official synopsis via Amazon Studios:

"Set in the diabolical world of The Boys, Gen V expands the universe to Godolkin University, the prestigious superhero-only college where students train to be the next generation of heroes—preferably with lucrative endorsements. You know what happens when supes go bad, but not all superheroes start out corrupt. Beyond the typical college chaos of finding oneself and partying, these kids are facing explosive situations … literally. As the students vie for popularity and good grades, it’s clear that the stakes are much higher when super powers are involved. When the group of young supes discover that something bigger and sinister is going on at school, they’re put to the test: Will they be the heroes or the villains of their stories?"
