With 2 episodes left in its debut season, Prime Video has already renewed Gen V (The Boys spinoff series) for a second season. Gen V centers on Godolkin University, the prestigious superhero college where students train to be the next generation of heroes (and maybe villains). The series cast includes Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Marco Pigossi. 

It also features guest stars Clancy Brown and Jason Ritter, as well as appearances from Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and P.J. Byrne, reprising their roles from The Boys.
