October 19, 2023
Amazon's Prime Video announced today that Gen V has been picked up for a second season. The renewal is an early one, coming with three episodes still remaining in the show's freshman run. A short video of the cast reacting to the good news was posted on social media.
"We couldn't be happier to make a second season of Gen V," said showrunner Michele Fazekas and executive producer Eric Kripke 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."
A spinoff of 'The Boys,' the series follows a group of competitive young heroes attending the Godolkin University School of Crimefighting. They are the first generation to know about Compound V, and that their powers come from an injection rather than being God-given. These superheroes put their physical and moral boundaries to the test as they vie for the school's highly-coveted top ranking. But when the university's dark secrets come to light, they'll learn that the difference between right and wrong isn't always clear, forcing them to come to terms with the type of heroes want to become.

I mean… If you think about it, the fact that Jordan can physically morph between boy and girl is pretty much the opposite of "gender is just a made-up construct".
And the invisible kid says "gender is just a made up construct".
The "Boys" has been crazy shocking and entertaining on bizarre levels. It just seems too soon to show a generic xavier school of the gifted with teen angst.
And plot-lines, I hope they generally stay separate. It is pandering to our attention spans to entice us to watch a whole new series for small story-line tie-ins.
That approach was covered by the 20 marvel movies and the red machette webisodes.
Teen angst. Puberty powers on overdrive. Roger Murtaugh is getting too old for that shi.
