Gen V’s Cate Dunlap and Sam Riordan will be returning to The Boys universe.
The two characters, played by Maddie Phillips and Asa Germann respectively, were confirmed to appear in future instalments in a Twitter/X post from Vought International, the viral marketing channels for the series.
“From the ashes of tragedy, a new generation of heroes will rise,” the post reads. “Like, retweet and smash that follow button to thank the new GUARDIANS OF GODOLKIN for their bravery in saving the lives of countless students. Cate Dunlap and Sam Riordan will return!”

The clip, which seems to be the news report Homelander (Antony Starr) watches in the Gen V finale, included some of the moments from the dramatic Godolkin attack. The video hails Cate and Sam as heroes, while spinning the narrative that Marie (Jaz Sinclair), Jordan (London Thor/Derek Luh), Emma (Lizzie Broadway) and Andre (Chance Perdomo) are responsible for the murders.
It hasn’t been confirmed whether Cate and Sam will return to wreak havoc on the fourth season of The Boys or the second instalment of Gen V, but it seems that the fourth chapter of the main series will pick up shortly after the spinoff’s finale.
“The writers are already working on the new season – sophomore year is gonna be wild, with all the twists, heart, satire, and exploding genitalia you’ve come to expect from the show,” showrunner Michele Fazekas and executive producer Eric Kripke said about the already confirmed Gen V season two.
Gen V’s executive producer Seth Rogen previously hyped the spinoff, explaining it would be “more shocking” than its predecessor.
“Gen V has some really crazy shit in it. The fact that they’re in college, they’re a little younger, makes it more shocking maybe,” he said. “In general, if you’re making an R-rated thing, they let you do whatever you want, unless there’s some real legal thing that they think you might be bumping against.”
