Gen V’s Release Date Announcement Is A Low-Key Troll

Would we expect anything less?

The upcoming The Boys spinoff Gen V has announced its premiere date – well, sort of.

Is the wait for the highly anticipated show almost over? Maybe. Over the weekend, the official Gen V Twitter account dropped an update about when audiences would finally get their eyes on the show.

The post was a photo of the date “2023” with the caption “Our favorite set of numbers!”

They quickly followed up with two more tweets “Other than The Seven! Other than the Seven,” referring to the council of superheroes known as The Seven from The Boys. The second offered a release “window” of “Premiere will be sometime between now and Dec 31!!!”

While it’s great news that the show is still on track to premiere this year, naturally it was frustrating for some fans hoping to get a real idea of when the show would drop

Others were excited about the news and happy to be gently trolled by the show, something very in keeping with the franchise’s vibe.

According to the official synopsis, “Gen V is set at America’s only college exclusively for superheroes, run by Vought International. Gen V is an 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 show stars Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau, Lizze Broadway as Emma Shaw, Patrick Schwarzenegger as Golden Boy, Sean Patrick Thomas as Polarity, and Marco Pigossi as Doctor Edison Cardosa. Jessie T. Usher aka A-Train is set to guest star. Colby Minifie as Ashley Barrett and P. J. Byrne and Adam Bourke will reprise their The Boys roles as well. Clancy Brown and Jason Ritter also star in as-of-yet-unnamed roles.

Watch the first-look trailer for Gen V below.
