The first season of The Boys spinoff Gen V isn’t even over yet, but it looks like Amazon Prime Video is ready to see more of the crazy kids from Godolkin University.
Just in, the official Gen V account has announced that a second season for the series has already been greenlit. Watch this:

We don’t know exactly what the show is building to yet, but knowing the Vought brand, we know that there are all kinds of dirty secrets when it comes to superheroes and the real dangers they can pose to regular people.
Not only do we get a cynical look at superheroes, but the show definitely likes to put a lens on the big capitalist franchises as well, and makes audiences watch as the heroes try to fight for fame and have to swallow all kinds of terrible behavior just to keep themselves on top—kind of like what happens to all the other supes we meet in The Boys.
With the next season of The Boys still far off, Gen V does offer something around the same vein. The characters are great, and it does offer a neat expansion of the world that builds on what came before and sets up new things that the original show could pay off.
Set in the diabolical world of The Boys, Gen V expands the universe to Godolkin University, the prestigious superhero-only college where students train to be the next generation of heroes. Beyond the typical college chaos of finding oneself and partying, these kids are facing explosive situations … literally.
