The Boys has received consistently high reviews since it premiered in 2019 with critics highlighting the show's satirical approach to superhero lore, its dark humour and action sequences.

A spino-off the show called Gen V is expected to premiere on Prime Video later this year and will follow young superheroes as they are tested in battle royale challenges at university.

The series is based on a comic book of the same name from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson which finished publishing in 2012.
