Prime Video Renews Gen V For Season 2

Good news for fans of The Boys as Amazon Prime Video confirms the renewal of Gen V for Season 2.

While Amazon hasn’t revealed any viewership data and ratings won’t hit Nielsen for a few weeks, you have to think Gen V is getting decent numbers with the quick renewal announcement which comes after the first five episodes. Check out the tweets below.

The Boys happens to be in the top five of Prime Video’s most-watched shows so likely the audience has carried over.

Episode 6, titled “Jumanji,” gets released this Friday and is set to feature Soldier Boy played by Jensen Ackles from the main series.

I like Gen V a lot and if you like The Boys, another great show, and haven’t checked it out, it’s really similar.

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.
