Where was Gen V filmed? The Godolkin University and all the Locations

Posted by

Although the action is set in New York, Gen V was filmed entirely in and around Toronto, Ontario.

The Boys series spin-off takes us back to the dark and cynical world of the corporate-owned and often corrupt superheroes.

Gen V cast

In the new series, we will dive into the halls of Godolkin University, the prestigious superhero-only college where students train to become the next generation of heroes.

The main cast is led by Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau, who can control her own blood; Chance Perdomo as Andre Anderson, who has magnetic powers; and Lizze Broadway as Emma Meyer, alias Little Cricket, who has the ability to shrink.

Here is our guide to all the filming locations of Gen V, listed in chronological order. We will be updating and expanding this spoiler-free report every week as new locations are revealed.

The Godolkin University location

Godolkin University
The Godolkin University's School of Crimefighting is one of the newest buildings at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

Opened in 2018, the Maanjiwe nendamowinan (abbreviated MN) is a building that is as modern, green, and sustainable as it is ugly.

School of Crimefighting
Looking at these superhero stained glass windows and paintings, the office of Indira Shetty (the dean of the university, played by Shelley Conn) seems like a set built in the studios.

Godolkin Stadium
The Godolkin Stadium, where Marie and Emma go to watch Golden Boy's workouts in the first episode, "God U.", is the Sobeys Stadium in Toronto.

The octagonal tennis stadium at York University's Keele Campus, completed in 2004, is named after a supermarket chain.

I'm almost positive that the scenes filmed in the basement/side door of the house are a location on Indian Valley Trail and Glenwood. They've used it for a lot of stuff over the years, friends of mine have lived there, and I'm convinced it looks too familiar.
