“Expanding the universe of The Boys with a series as bold as Gen Vhas been an incredible journey for us and our wonderful partners at Sony. From our first conversation with showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, along with Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen, we knew Gen V would push the boundaries,” said Amazon MGM Studios’s head of television Vernon Sanders. “Their unapologetic approach is exactly what audiences love, and it has helped Gen Vbecome the No. 1 series on Prime Video in over 130 countries.
