Gen V Season 2 Cast Adds Hamish Linklater, Character Revealed

The cast of Amazon’s The Boys spin-off Gen V continues to grow for its second season, with Hamish Linklater joining the upcoming new season of the series.

Who is Hamish Linklater playing in the Gen V Season 2 cast?

Linklater will play the character of Cipher in Gen V Season 2. According to a report from Variety, Cipher is described as “the charismatic and charming newly-appointed Dean of Godolkin University. Trained as a scientist, he’s politically brilliant, and has the trust and admiration of officials at the highest level.”

Linklater joins a cast that already features a large ensemble, including Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Sean Patrick Thomas, and more.

Linklater is known for his starring role in the CBS sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine, as well as roles in The Crazy Ones, Legion, and the Netflix horror series Midnight Mass.

“Set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes (run by Vought International), Gen V is an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities,” reads the synopsis. “It’s part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.”
