Prime Video has announced it has renewed the ongoing The Boys spin-off Gen V for a Season 2 ahead of the first season‘s conclusion early next month.
Variety confirmed that the raunchy superhero series had been renewed for a second season at Prime Video just weeks after the first season began. Several people involved with the series made statements about the announcement of Gen V Season 2.
“We couldn’t be happier to make a second season of Gen V,” showrunner Michele Fazekas and executive producer Eric Kripke said. “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.”
“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,” Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios stated. “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. Their unapologetic approach is exactly what audiences love, and it has helped Gen V become the No. 1 series on Prime Video in over 130 countries. 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.”
What is Gen V about?
“Set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International), Gen V is an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities,” reads the synopsis. “It’s part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.”
Gen V stars Jaz Sinclair as Marie, Patrick Schwarzenegger as Luke, Chance Perdomo as Andre, Lizze Broadway as Emma, Shelley Conn as Dean Shetty, Maddie Phillips as Cate, London Thor and Derek Luh as Jordan, Asa Germann as Sam, Sean Patrick Thomas as Polarity, Marco Pigossi as Dr. Edison Cardosa, and more. Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles is also set to make an appearance along with other The Boys cast members.
