Rooster Teeth’s animated series gen:LOCK is set to return for a second season thanks to the upcoming Warner streaming service HBO Max.
Set fifty years in the future in a dystopian Earth undergoing a new, technologically-driven war, gen:LOCK tells the story of an oppressive authoritarian force that threatens to conquer the world. A daring team is recruited to pilot a new form of devastating mecha, but they must be willing to sacrifice everything to save the world.
“We’re beyond excited to be producing a second season of gen:LOCK for HBO Max,” said Matt Hullum, co-founder and Chief Content Officer at Rooster Teeth. “Billy Wee and the team at HBO Max have been incredibly supportive in the development process, and we’re thrilled to be working closely with them on this project. We were blown away by the response to the first season of this show, both by the Rooster Teeth community and the Adult Swim audience, and cannot wait to bring it to more fans of action, sci-fi, and mecha animation.”
“We are proud to bring gen:LOCK’s bold vision, inventive style, and extraordinary cast to HBO Max, and to build on the success that our partners at Rooster Teeth and Outlier Society have crafted so skillfully,” said Billy Wee, senior vice president original animation, HBO Max.
Season two of gen:LOCK will feature the return of voice actors Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther), Dakota Fanning (The Alienist), Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), Golshifteh Farahani (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales), and David Tennant (Jessica Jones). It is set to air on HBO Max, and will be available 90 days later on Rooster Teeth for FIRST members.
