Developed by Craig Rosenberg, Gen V is a superhero fiction, dark comedy, adventure series that debuted on Prime Video on September 29, 2023. The show, which is set in the same universe as The Boys, centers on a group of college students who attend Godolkin University School, an institution created especially for superheroes.
With the first season already on the air, here’s everything you need to know about Gen V season 2, including its release date, cast, and other updates!
“We are happy to be producing a second season of Gen V. We have grown to adore these stories and characters, so we are overjoyed to hear that others feel the same way!” executive producers Eric Kripke and Fazekas said on Gen V season 2 renewal!
Gen V season 2 has officially been renewed! The second season of Gen V, a popular series on Prime Video that is a spin-off of the popular show The Boys, has been renewed. The first season of the show began airing on September 29 and runs for eight episodes.
“With our fantastic collaborators at Sony, it has been an amazing journey to expand the universe of The Boys with a series as radical as Gen V. We knew Gen V would push the envelope from the moment we spoke with showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, as well as Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen. Audiences adore their outspoken style, according to Vernon Sanders, chief of television at Amazon MGM Studios.
“We are happy to be producing a second season of Gen V. We have grown to adore these stories and characters, so we are overjoyed to hear that others feel the same way! The sophomore year is going to be wild, with all the twists, emotion, satire, and exploding genitalia you’ve come to expect from the show, according to executive producers Eric Kripke and Fazekas. The writers are already hard at work on the upcoming season.
“Gen V expands the universe to Godolkin University, the esteemed superhero-only college where students prepare to be the next generation of heroes—preferably with rich endorsements—in the devious world of The Boys. It’s no secret what happens when superheroes turn evil, although not all of them are corrupt at first. According to the narrative synopsis, “These kids are facing explosive situations… literally, beyond the typical college chaos of finding oneself and partying.”
Prime’s Gen V Season Two Cast
All of our Gen V friends—Jaz Sinclair (as Marie), Lizze Broadway (as Emma), Chance Perdomo (as Andre), London Thor and Derek Luh (as Jordan), Maddie Phillips (as Cate), and Asa Germann (as Sam)—should return for the new season. Additionally, we should anticipate seeing more of Patrick Schwarzenegger (as Luke/Golden Boy) frequently in dream sequences and flashbacks.
Additionally, we would anticipate more of the cameos from The Boys that maintain the strong connections between the two worlds; Season 1 featured appearances from Antony Starr (Homelander), Karl Urban (Butcher), Jensen Ackles (Soldier Boy), Claudia Doumit (Victoria Neuman), and Colby Minifie (Ashley), among others; maybe in Season 2, we’ll see even more of these friends.
Prime’s Gen V Season 2 Plot: What can we expect?
The plot of Gen V probably depends on how things work out in The Boys Season 4. However, it appears that the plot of Gen V Season 2 will probably follow up with the revelation that Godolkin University was always a covert, exalted research lab designed to exploit its pupils rather than being a place for education at all.
Naturally, there will also be the fallout from the imprisonment of four heroes and the public acclaim of two antagonists as heroes. Due to a lack of information at the moment, we cannot fully anticipate the plot. If the makers make any formal revelations, we will update this space—do watch out!
Prime’s Gen V Season 2 Release Date
Variety reports that Gen V has received an official two-season renewal.

However, the release date for season 2 of Gen V hasn’t been scheduled. Once it’s made available officially, we shall update this space—please stay connected with us until then!
