‘Gen V’ Will Not Recast Chance Perdomo Following Actor’s Death

The producers of Prime Video‘s Gen V announced Sunday they will not recast Chance Perdomo’s role following the actor’s death in March, telling fans they are working to find a way to best honor him.

“As we continue to navigate the tragic loss of Chance Perdomo, everyone at Gen V is determined to find the best way to pay respect to his memory,” a statement published to social media read. “We won’t be recasting the role, because no one can replace Chance. Instead, we have been taking the time and space to recraft our aeason 2 storylines as we begin production in May.”

Perdomo played Andre Anderson in Gen V, Amazon’s spinoff of The Boys. Andre is a popular student at Godolkin University who is capable of magnetically manipulating things.

“We will honor Chance and his legacy this season,” the producers concluded.

Perdomo died in March in a motorcycle accident. He was 27. In addition to Gen V, he was also known for his performance as in Ambrose Spellman in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Ambrose was the cousin of protagonist Sabrina, played by Kiernan Shipka.

Following news of his death, the Gen V producing team wrote that “we can’t quite wrap our heads around this,” adding: “For those of us who knew him and worked with him, Chance was always charming and smiling, an enthusiastic force of nature, an incredibly talented performer, and more than anything else, just a very kind, lovely person. Even writing about him in the past tense doesn’t make sense. We are so sorry for Chance’s family, and we are grieving the loss of our friend and colleague. Hug your loved ones tonight.”
