A Second Season Of Gen:LOCK Is Coming

What started on Rooster Teeth is about to go to the max. HBO Max, to be exact.

gen:LOCK, the Warner Bros. streaming service, HBO Max. The episodes will find their way to Rooster Teeth 90 days later.

“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,” Billy Wee, senior vice president original animation for HBO Max, said in a press release.

Featuring the voices of Jordan, David Tennant, Maisie Williams, and Dakota Fanning, 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.”

In a world where streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon are, or will soon be, facing competition from CBS All Access, Apple TV+, Disney+, Peacock, and so many others, HBO Max is doing its best to make itself a must-have. gen:LOCK may be one small example, but with the recent acquisitions of Adventure Time, The Boondocks, Sesame Street as well as the Studio Ghibli library, it’s carving out a nice niche for itself, especially in animation and family programming.

No release date was announced for gen:LOCK season two. HBO Max is unlikely to launch in Australia, so look to Rooster Teeth after release for your gen:LOCK hit.
