The creators have set the Gen V release date as 29th September 2023. The first three episodes will premiere together with the fourth one releasing on 6th October 2023. Gen V will conclude its first season with the eighth episode on 3rd November 2023.
Gen V Plot
Gen V is set in the same universe as The Boys and will also feature characters from it. This web show will follow a group of teenagers with special abilities enrolling at the Godolkin University School of Crimefighting which is being run by the infamous Vought International. This is the same organization that the superheroes in The Boys work for.
The students at the school are quite competitive with each other and it seems Vought International and the school’s founder John Godolkin, are merely in the education sphere for business profit. The first teaser of Gen V has already shown us a few bloody and gory scenes, and it shows us how powerful these young adults are.
The plot will show us a competition between the students at the school as they fight for the first rank. Amidst it, they will be faced with grave choices and choose which side they want to be on. It also seems that the Godolkin University School of Crimefighting is not what it seems on the outside and harbors a lot of secrets.
