Gen V season 2 is yet to be greenlit but already in development, confirms showrunner Michele Fazekas

The debut season of Gen V is set in the same timeline as The Boys, season 4. Season 4 of the latter was confirmed on June 2022, and will hopefully receive a release date soon.

Showrunner, Michele Fazekas, and executive producer, Eric Kripke, recently spoke to TheWarp. In the interview, they confirmed that since the series has been showered with a ton of love from both fans and critics, there is a high possibility for the streamer to green-light season 2.

The team is completely prepared as the work on the upcoming season has already started.

Michele Fazekas said,

"We do not have an official season to order yet. We’ve gotten the writers together to talk about what’s possible. So we’re hopeful."

Kripke added,

"We need to see how the show performs, and we need to see if people are watching it, and if Amazon’s happy. There is a second season writers room for ‘Gen V.’ Yes. I mean, look, the fact that Amazon has paid for Michele to have a second season [writers] room is a good sign. So, you know, fingers crossed."

Fazekas even confirmed that the team behind the show has thought way ahead in the future. However, instead of focusing on the seasons, they are working on the story and the characters.
