Here are the main characters and actors in the Gen V cast.

Bloody Supes. Through three seasons of the mainline series and a brief animated spinoff alongside it, we’ve met all sorts of wild and zany figures in The Boys.

From the unmistakable presence of Anthony Starr’s Homelander to the brief yet captivating Shawn Ashmore as Lamplighter, we’ve seen all sorts of troubled heroes and villains. A new batch of faces has joined the mix, thanks to Gen V.

So as we look forward to Gen V Season 2, here are the most prominent figures.

Sam Riordan: Asa Germann

Indira Shetty: Shelley Conn

Professor Rich Brinkerhoff: Clancy Brown
