New plot items have discovered what would have happened in Generation season 2. The depict, which is stylized as Genera+ ion, premiered on HBO Max on March 11, 2021. It performed Chloe East, Nava Mau, Lukita Maxwell, Haley Sanchez, Uly Schlesinger, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Chase Sui Wonders, Justice Smith, and Martha Plimpton. Although Generation loped for 16 incidents through July 8, HBO Max announced yesterday that they were canceling the line after one season.

Generation followed a group of high school students who experiment with their sexuality in a conservative sphere of Orange County, California. There were numerous attributes and plot lines to juggle on the reveal, and regrettably , not every story was wrapped up neatly before the see was canceled. The first season ended on a cliffhanger where an emotionally distraught Chester( Smith) smiles as he fulfils an unknown person on the ceiling of a signboard.

Speaking with EW, Generation co-creator, Zelda Barnz, rebutted the most frequently asked questions following the cancellation of the show. In addition to providing a coy rebuttal regarding the rooftop situation, Barnz discusses if Riley( Chase Sui Wonders) would have ended up moving and if Mark( Sam Trammell) intention up as the third largest in a polyamorous liaison. Barnz spilled the nuts about the decision-making process behind the scenes of the HBO Max sequence as well. Check out Barnz’s reacts below 😛 TAGEND

Was Mark Patrick and Joe’s third?

No, we( “the authors “) never intended for this to be the consequence, but we always revelled the possibility that Mark( Sam Trammell) was bi-curious, and had simply never had the chance to explore. We discussed countless minds regarding how to move forward with the Stewart family post-finale, and we didn’t settle on anything final, but many of us adored the relevant recommendations of Mark becoming a more present and open-minded dad, even if he didn’t get the chance to explore his virility more in the framework of our show.

Would Delilah, Naomi, and Arianna have been okay?

Eventually, yes. We find the slightest view of this when Arianna( Nathanya Alexander) and Delilah( Lukita Maxwell) reconnect at the end of the finale, and of course the gap between these two and Naomi( Chloe East) is much more extreme, but I belief these are three girls who couldn’t help but come back to each other.

Would Riley have gone to Reno with her father?

No. We could never have gotten rid of Riley( Chase Sui Wonders ), we adore her( and Chase) style too much. Who knows? Maybe Ana( Nava Mau) would’ve borrowed her.

And Riley and Greta’s relationship?

We really wanted to explore the implications of a relationship between one sex and one asexual person, when they each know such strong romantic feelings for each other. I don’t think there is enough asexual illustration in television to begin with, but it’s likewise a question of the kind of asexual representation. I happen to know several ace people who have had dreamy affairs, so why is that so hard to find in the media? So yes, there was certainly a future for Greta( Haley Sanchez) and Riley( but they both need to learn some communication skills ). I’ll admit I’m disappointed that we didn’t get to continue this representation of Greta’s experience with her name — I think it had potential to be a valuable person arc for a lot of ace or questioning children. I’ll likewise admit I’m sad we couldn’t demonstrate Riley her glad ending.

And then there is the unresolved mystery…

Who did Chester assure on the rooftop?

I wish I had a straight answer, and I’m sorry I don’t have any certainty on the matter, but I judge I can answer this question in another way. Now is the concluding scene of Genera+ ion, as it is written 😛 TAGEND


We don’t know how much occasion has passed precisely, but we see light in the sky. Feeling restless, Chester ascents a little more. bends out. It feels a bit reckless, a bit dangerous.

Then he discovers a NOISE from the roof below. He looks down, and is very surprised to see someone. but he smiles, because whoever this is constructs him so incredibly happy.

CHESTERIt’s you.



The cast and crew and writers and producers of Generation all had countless communications about this incident, about who should be the “you” in question. There was also a lot of surmise from supporters. Some thought it should be Riley, some recall Nathan( Uly Schlesinger) after their hectic finale arc. Or Bo( Marwan Salama ), who genuinely loves Chester( Justice Smith ), and wants so much better to figure it out.

Some parties thought it should be Sam( Nathan Stewart-Jarrett ), because of the phone call, and because Sam has received a photo of this orientation before( via email, in the pilot ). Justice once said it could be Chester’s missing father. One farmer thoughts the integrity of the GSA should show up, in a scene emphasizing the concept of chosen family. A supporter formerly asked me if it was the specter of Chester’s mother.

Personally, I always thought it should be J( Sydney Mae Diaz ). Partially for logistical reasons, because no other courage had actually been to that discern before. But also because, in my view , no other character was quite as intuitive. J evidenced Chester’s breakdown over such courses of the light, and he knows how Chester’s mind directs when he’s upset. I don’t review any other character could both pinpoint exactly where Chester would go, and then follow him there. I visualize J depict up would’ve been really cool.

I’m not going to argue academic-essay style why J concludes the most sense to me. Instead, I want to say something about this scene.

I’m very proud to end this prove with a moment of euphorium. Unexplained joy, maybe, but does joy ever compel justification? I don’t think it does. I don’t think it should. What substances about this background is not who shown in( the unresolved mystery is a bit of theater, the “click next” moment that all streaming services ask their novelists to provide ), but that someone shows up. Someone shows up for this unapologetically queer son in a moment of vulnerability. Someone shows up for him where reference is needs them, and he’s able to smile, and he’s able to say “it’s you.” And we know he’s not alone on that rooftop.

So actually, there is no mystery. Maybe it’s Sam or Riley or J or maybe it’s a hallucination or maybe it’s a attribute we haven’t met yet, but it doesn’t genuinely matter in the end. It’s whoever Chester needed most in that moment. There is closure in knowing that person obtained their style to him, whoever they may be.

To any faggot person predict this, whether you watched Generation or not, if your someone hasn’t procured you more, give them time. They’re finding their way.

Though Barnz was forthcoming with answers to most of those questions, the practice the Chester question is thinly sidestepped is certainly intriguing. Although Barnz does declare a predilection, the implication is that there wasn’t an official decision beforehand, which feels the slightest bit fishy. Either the showrunners genuinely didn’t plan who was going to arrive at Chester’s side, or they’re holding off on confirming that in case Generation gets picked up at another studio, which is still possible considering how fresh this cancellation is and how many cult favorite sequence do do picked up elsewhere.

Especially considering how much the show means to its legion of LGBTQ+ fans, a smaller platform may understand potential in resuscitating a show that has such good representation at a comparatively low budget. However, for now, fans of Generation can at least be satisfied with such open honest from one of the creators. Some shows that end on cliffhangers never get any sense of ending at all, and Zelda Barnz has been especially magnanimous with equip asks here.
