Has Gen V been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The latest spin-off series for The Boys is here, aptly titled Gen V, and it’s just as explosive, action-packed and satirical as the original show it’s spawned from.

With the season now over, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:


What is Gen V about?

Gen V explores the first generation of superheroes to know that their super powers are from Compound V. These heroes put their physical and moral boundaries to the test as they compete for the school’s top ranking.

However, beyond the typical college chaos of partying and finding your own identity, these kids find themselves facing explosive situations… quite literally!


Has Gen V been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Amazon Prime Video have not renewed Gen V for a second season, although it’ll be interesting to see if this one does get the green-light, given there are rumours that the writing team would like to continue the story laid out here.

Generally Amazon Prime, like other streaming platforms, gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton etc.) Other times, it can take months before a decision is made over a show’s future.

Gen V has had a pretty positive reaction so far from fans and critics alike, with lots liking the drama but others feeling like this is somewhat of an unnecessary sequel, all things considered.

However, The Boys is an incredibly popular IP and the chances are this spin-off will get a good number of eyeballs on it. Given what we know thus far, we predict that this will be renewed for a follow-up season, although we will update this section when we learn more!


What we know about season 2 so far:

Not much is known about season 2 at the time of writing, given Amazon Prime have not officially renewed this one yet. Should the streamers decide to greenlight this one then of course we’ll see all our familiar characters return, with plenty more action and drama to boot! As highlighted above, we think this is going to be renewed and hopefully we get an answer sooner rather than later!
