Despite the absence of an official renewal for Gen V’s next season, the creative minds behind the series are displaying remarkable optimism. Showrunner Michele Fazekas confirmed that the wheels are already in motion for Season 2, with the establishment of a dedicated writers’ room.
“We do not have an official season to order yet,” she conveyed to The Wrap. “We’ve gotten the writers together to talk about what’s possible. So we’re hopeful.”
This proactive stance is indicative of the team’s determination to extend the Gen V storyline, even in the face of uncertainties about its future.
A Waiting Game with Amazon Studios
Eric Kripke, the creator of “The Boys,” offered insights into the situation, highlighting that Amazon Studios is closely monitoring Gen V’s performance. “We need to see how the show performs, and we need to see if people are watching it, and if Amazon’s happy,” he explained. The fact that Amazon has allocated resources for Michele Fazekas to convene a second season’s writers’ room is indeed a promising sign.
Gen V, for those unacquainted, delves into the lives of a group of college-age Supes as they navigate the tumultuous waters of university, grapple with their burgeoning superpowers, and compete for coveted spots in “The Seven.” Simultaneously, Vought, the omnipotent corporation, appears to be harboring a profound conspiracy beneath the veneer of Godolkin University, setting the stage for significant repercussions in the upcoming narrative.
