Generation was created by Zelda Barnz and her father, Daniel Barnz, who also directed, and was the first HBO Max pilot to go on series. The first season of 16 episodes premiered on March 11th and ran in two parts, ending on July 8th. The half-hour show follows a group of high school students exploring modern sexuality (devices and everything else) ingrained beliefs about life, love, and the nature of the family in their conservative community.
“We’re not going to move forward with a second season of Genera + ion,” HBO Max said in a statement. “We are very proud to have worked with Zelda and Daniel Barnz to faithfully and authentically represent LGBTQ youth with such a diverse group of characters and multi-layered stories. We thank you and our wonderfully talented cast for all of your hard work and collaboration. “
