The announcement came today, building on the success of the series, which premiered its eight-episode first season on September 29 and is set to conclude with a gripping season finale on November 3.
Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios said amid the news: “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. 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,” he added.
Showrunner Michele Fazekas and executive producer Eric Kripke added, “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.”
“We couldn’t be happier to make a second season of Gen V. 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.”
If you haven’t yet caught the series — the show takes place in the world of The Boys but expands the universe to Godolkin University, a prestigious superhero-only college where students are groomed to become the next generation of heroes.
