Quality is more important than quantity

Despite the positive reactions from viewers and critics, squeezing as much money as possible out of this lemon of ideas offered by "The Boys" world, additional spin-offs are not the most important for the creators. In an interview given to ComicBook.com, producer Pavun Shetty explained his perspective on the potential next chapters of the universe:

- We are lucky that fans have loved this series so much and are eagerly awaiting "Generation V", and also that it has many characters that new stories can be built on. [...] But I think the most important thing for us is that we are really diligent and have thought about what we will do next.

He emphasized that the most important thing is the story that the creators want to share:

- We would like to create many series, but I think viewers [...] understand when a series appears for the right reasons, because it has a real story to tell and it seems like it's the same world, but different.

Shetty assured that the possibility of creating more spin-offs is real:

- We really think about what the next series could be, how it could fit into the universe and give the impression that it is a piece of the puzzle that fits with all the others, but is not just a series for the sake of the series.

The series "Generation V" is currently available on Amazon Prime Video. The next episode is on Friday, October 13th (Eastern Time) The popular title amongst fans fills the gap as they wait for the next season of "The Boys", which has not begun filming due to a actors' strike in Hollywood.
