Season 2 of the animated series gen:LOCK starring Michael B. Jordan will now air on HBO’s new streaming service — HBO Max.
Rooster Teeth aired season 1 of the new animated science fiction show gen:LOCK earlier this year. The series takes place in a world where humanoid mechas are used as weapons.
The story follows Vanguard pilot Julian Chase (Michael B. Jordan) on a mission to protect his people from an oppressive authoritarian force threatening to conquer the world. Dakota Fanning, Maisie Williams, Asia Kate Dillon, Golshifteh Farahani, and David Tennant also star in this western anime.
Variety reports that Season 2 of gen:LOCK will premiere on HBO Max and have an exclusive 90-day run on the service (the company didn’t announce a release date). After the 90-day window on HBO Max, the series will be available on Rooster Teeth’s First subscription-streaming service.
This series will add to HBO Max’s roster of animated series including the fan-favorite, Adventure Time.
HBO Max will be free to HBO and AT&T customers. The streaming service is set to launch in Spring of 2020.
