Who could ever forget the debauchery that the series The Boys gave its fans? With three seasons, the show made fans fall in love with the storyline filled with not the usual type of superheroes and has a fourth one on the way. But while fans are waiting for the next season, the creator of the show, Eric Kripke, has given fans a spinoff of the series, Gen V, which features Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s son Patrick Schwarzenegger.

Just days after the first three episodes of the season of the superhero series made its way to Amazon Prime, it stole the hearts of its newfound fans. So much so that fans immediately took to social media to ask the creators of the show to give some of their favorite characters more screen time. But with The Terminator‘s son in the lead role as Luke Riordan, it was no surprise that the internet has now been swooning over the actor’s skillset and talent.

While most users could not help but appreciate the 30-year-old’s acting, some were more focused on things that did not seem to matter as much.
