Whereas watching the trailer for “Gen V,” followers of “The Boys” could also be questioning simply how this connects to the primary present, and whether or not Hughie, Butcher, and the opposite Boys may make an look. Nicely, although we do not know all the main points, we all know sufficient about how the spin-off connects to the primary collection.
For one, the trailer reveals a couple of characters from “The Boys,” like A-Practice, Ashley, and Senator Neuman, that means that Vought is closely concerned. Showrunner Eric Kripke informed Deadline final 12 months that “Gen V” takes place through the occasions of “The Boys” season 3, so earlier than the seize of Soldier Boy and Homelander’s broad daylight murder. In accordance with Kripke, occasions from that season will closely impression the story of “Gen V” — notably Soldier Boy, the presidential marketing campaign occurring within the background, and extra.
What’s extra attention-grabbing is that Kripke mentioned a couple of storylines occurring in “Gen V” will then impression season 4 of “The Boys.” On condition that Victoria Neuman is ready to be the large villain of season 4 of the primary present, the truth that she’s within the trailer for “Gen V” might trace in direction of a giant function for the vice presidential candidate — and unhealthy information for everybody else.
