The students of Godolkin University will get to come back for another year, with Prime Video announcing that Gen V, the spinoff series from The Boys that is currently running on the streaming service, has been renewed for a second season.

The series, which stars Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelly Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi, is set at Godolkin University — a school for aspiring superheroes and celebrities alike, which is (of course) filled with secrets, betrayal, and no shortage of students who should really know better but are endlessly entertaining because they don’t.

“We couldn’t be happier to make a second season of Gen V,” series showrunner Michele Fazekas and executive producer Eric Kripke said in a statement. “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.”

Amazon MGM Studios head of television Vernon Sanders added, “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. 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.”

The second season announcement comes ahead of the show’s first season finale, which will debut on Prime Video November 3.
