How many episodes are in Gen V? When The Boys first premiered in 2019, it took audiences by storm with its unwavering violence and vicious take on the superhero genre. Introducing us to The Seven and the anti-Supe vigilante group known as The Boys, the series made us rethink what could happen if superheroes really walked the Earth.
It should be no surprise that a handful of spin-off series for The Boys were quickly put into development, and the latest one is almost here in the form of Gen V. Once again taking a satirical look at the best superhero movies, the new thriller series is set in Godolkin University, a college run by Vought International designed to house young up-and-coming heroes.
Honestly, a group of teens struggling to cope with their powers while battling each other for the most illustrious superhero contracts sounds like it could make for one of the best TV series of the year. (And we’re looking forward to seeing plenty of cameos from The Boys cast!) So, how many episodes are in Gen V, and when do they come out? Read ahead to find out.
