What’s left of Godolkin University will surely go haywire in “Gen V” season two. Amazon Prime Video green-lit the gory “The Boys” spinoff — which unravels a sinister plot brewing at a prestigious college training the next generation of Supes — for a second season on Oct. 19. The streamer announced in a press release, “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 . . . We’re excited that our incredible cast and crew are going to continue telling brave and bold stories from ‘Gen V’ to our customers.”
Fazekas and Kripke added in a press statement, “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.”
“Gen V” wrapped up its explosive debut season on Nov. 3 after eight mind-blowing episodes. From the start, viewers had no idea how wild the series would get. But the disturbing Supe experiment gone wrong that killed nearly half of Godolkin’s student body in the finale is just the beginning of a truly insane journey. Never mind what it all means for “The Boys” season four, which will likely arrive before the next installment of “Gen V.” Fans are still trying to process what’s going to happen to the main crew — Marie (Jaz Sinclair), Andre (Chance Perdomo), Cate (Maddie Phillips), Jordan (London Thor/Derek Luh), Sam (Asa Germann), and Emma (Lizze Broadway) — now that battle lines have been drawn.
