It looks like internet production company Rooster Teeth is about to get exposed to a much wider audience for the second season of its digital series gen:LOCK, which had its first season drop on the official Rooster Teeth website earlier this year. Six months later, and now a second season is reported to be on the way — this time on Rooster Teeth’s sister company’s streaming platform, HBO Max.
That’s right. Rooster Teeth is headed to HBO Max. This is a move that makes sense, given that gen:LOCK was perhaps their highest-profile web series to date, and it boasted a cast that included Michael B. Jordan, Dakota Fanning, Maisie Williams, and David Tennant. Basically, if there was a project of theirs that would get the extra attention, this would be it.

“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. “[HBO Max senior vp animation] 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.”
This news also comes weeks after a restructuring over at Rooster Teeth led to a substantial layoff. All in all, it looks like the winds of change are blowing at the company, and this is just one small indication of that change.
