The period of moving from adolescence into adulthood is easily one of the most formative chapters in a person’s life. No matter what path one takes, the lessons learned during this time shape the adult they’ll become. For some, this journey includes furthering their studies in academia which comes with its own set of excitement, hardships, and rites of passage. In Prime Video’s Gen V, the brightest and best up-and-coming superheroes continue their education and training at Godolkin University. While they’re busy taking crime fighting classes and learning what it means to be a hero, they’re also living it up away from their families for the first time in their young lives. In an interview with Prime prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike, Gen V stars Derek Luh and Sean Patrick Thomas shared how the series blends familiar college experiences with the supercharged storyline.
