  1. Gen V: Final Trailer

The final trailer for Gen V has been released by Prime Video as the series will debut later this month.

Release Date: Streaming on Prime Video on September 29, 2023

Synopsis: 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 superheros 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?

While spending his first night on the job, he realizes the night shift at Freddy’s won’t be so easy to make it through.
