A second season of Gen V may already be in the works, months before the release of its debut season on Amazon Prime. In a story first reported by Deadline, the streaming platform were reportedly “happy” with the first season and were already assembling a writing team to put together a second follow-up season.
The decision to renew the dark superhero drama at this stage has yet to be green-lit, so we’ll keep our ears to the ground and report back when we know more. It was further reported that a potential second season would be led by executive producer Michele Fazekas, who would serve as showrunner.
Tara Butters, a longtime collaborator with Fazekas, is reportedly taking a break from the series. The two are best known for their work on Law & Order: SVU, Emergence, and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. For the time being, there’s a deliciously violent trailer to give us an idea of what we can expect from Gen V.
Gen V stars Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, Marco Pigossi, and Jason Ritter.
The spin-off is produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and Amazon Studios, alongside Kripke Enterprises, Point Grey Pictures, and Original Film. Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg are among the executive producers on the series.
Gen V is expected to premiere on Prime Video in 2023. For more superhero content from The Boys universe, take a gander at FlickLuster’s Season 3 finale review.
