Prime Video has officially announced that it has renewed its The Boys spin-off Gen V for a Season 2. Gen V premiered back in late September with the Season 1 finale coming November 3. The show introduced a new class of would-be heroes from Godolkin University and stayed on brand with what fans had expected from its predecessor.
Typical college antics aside, these young supes are up against high stakes and a sinister plot in their school that has them rethinking their budding careers, and if the super-villain lifestyle would be easier. You can check out our review here.
“Expanding the universe of The Boys with a series as bold as Gen V has been an incredible journey for us and our wonderful partners at Sony. From our first conversation with showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, along with Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen, we knew Gen V would push the boundaries,” said Vernon Sanders, head of television, Amazon MGM Studios in a statement. “Gen V is Prime Video’s most acquisitive new Original series of 2023, and we’re excited that our incredible cast and crew are going to continue telling brave and bold stories from Gen V to our customers.”
The Season 1 cast includes Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi. Gen V also features guest stars Clancy Brown and Jason Ritter, as well as appearances from Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and P.J. Byrne, reprising their roles from The Boys, including a cameo from Jensen Ackles as Solider Boy.
“We couldn’t be happier to make a second season of Gen V,” added showrunner Michele Fazekas and executive producer Eric Kripke. “These are characters and stories we’ve grown to love, and we are thrilled to know people feel the same! The writers are already working on the new season–sophomore year is gonna be wild, with all the twists, heart, satire, and exploding genitalia you’ve come to expect from the show.”
