‘Gen V’ Season 2 Production on Hold Following Perdomo’s Death

'Gen V' Season 2 Production on Hold Following Perdomo's Death

We have recently written that the production of the second season of Gen V was to start soon, but things have changed as of Saturday. Namely, as we have reported, Chance Perdomo (27), one of the series’ main actors, tragically died in a motorcycle accident on Saturday, which means that Gen V has lost one of its main stars. This means that the production of Gen V has been halted indefinitely, and as of this moment, it is unknown what is going to happen with the series.

Amazon and the people involved with the series first have to mourn Perdomo’s death, as the loss is certainly going to hit all those involved very hard. After that, they have another complex task, as they have to figure out what to do with Andre Anderson, who was one of the most important characters in the series.

It remains to be seen whether Perdomo’s character will be replaced by a new actor following the actor’s death, which would mean that the writers wouldn’t have to change much, or whether Anderson is going to be written out of the series, which means that the writers are going to have to work a lot, regardless of whether they decide to simply write him out or replace him with a new character. But, all of this is of lesser importance, as everybody involved is mourning over the tragedy.

Amazon Studios has released an official reaction to the tragedy: “The entire Gen V family is devastated by the sudden passing of Chance Perdomo. Amazon MGM Studios and Sony Pictures Television extend our heartfelt thoughts and support to Chance’s family and all who loved him at this difficult time.”

The series’ producer also reacted via an official statement:

“It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of Chance Perdomo’s untimely passing as a result of a motorcycle accident. Authorities have advised that no other individuals were involved. His passion for the arts and insatiable appetite for life was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth will carry on in those whom he loved dearest. We ask you to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their beloved son and brother.”
