If you’re looking for more from the students of Godolkin University, you’re in luck.
Prime Video announced today that it’s renewed The Boys spinoff Gen V for a second season. The news comes as its eight-episode first season continues to roll out, with the finale on Nov. 3.
Gen V expands the world of Prime Video’s hit superhero satire The Boys by introducing the Godolkin University, which aims to train the next generation of heroes – but this is the universe of The Boys, of course, so there’s still wild powers, corporate conspiracies, and gore galore.
The 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, but the first season also had several The Boys stars return to reprise their roles. Jessie T. Usher (A-Train), Colby Minifie (Ashley Barrett), Claudia Doumit (Victoria Neuman), and P.J. Byrne (Adam Bourke) all returned, and Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy is set to make an appearance in Gen V Season 1 as well.
Gen V debuted on Prime Video on Sept. 29, with IGN giving the first three episodes a 9/10: “Gen V exists at the crossroads of contemporary teen sex comedies, ruthless The Boys tomfoolery, and ambitious shock-and-awe excellence that fans deserve,” Matt Donato wrote for IGN at the time.
Today’s good news about Gen V comes as fans await more updates on The Boys Season 4. It was renewed shortly after the premiere of Season 3 back in June 2022, but the last we heard, showrunner Eric Kripke said this past June on X that “when #Season4 drops depends on how long the #WGA Strike goes.” The writers’ strike ended last month (while SAG-AFTRA remains on the picket lines), but we haven’t heard an update on that series yet.
