The series follows the first generation of young ‘created’ superheroes who must grapple with their physical and moral boundaries – coming to the streamer this November. 

Prime Video shared the official teaser trailer and debut date for the Amazon Original series Gen V, coming to the streamer in 240+ countries and territories worldwide September 29. New episodes will roll out each week, leading to an “epic” November 3 season finale.

The teaser gives audiences a peek into life at Godolkin University, America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International).
