Chance Perdomo Gen V Andre Anderson

The producers behind The Boys spin-off Gen V released a statement on Sunday via social media saying they will not be recasting the role of Andre Anderson, portrayed by the late Chase Perdomo. They intend to pay tribute to the actor and have adjusted the show’s storylines in light of his passing at the age of 27 in a tragic motorcycle accident on March 30.

“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,” the Gen V producers said in a statement.

“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 Season 2 storylines as we begin production in May,” the producers wrote.

The statement ends with the following: “We will honor Chance and his legacy this season.”

In the wake of this tragic event, Perdomo’s family and representatives previously released a statement expressing the profound impact he had on those around him. “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 who 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,” the note reads.

Several cast members of the show paid tribute to Perdomo in their own heartfelt ways.

Patrick Schwarzenegger, known for his role as Golden Boy/Luke, expressed his grief, saying, “This hurts. A lot. What a young, talented actor and a great friend — gone way too soon. Was a pleasure to work with him in ‘Gen V.’ RIP Chance.”

Lizze Broadway, who portrays Emma, shared a touching handwritten note online, remembering Perdomo as a dear friend and an essential part of her personal growth.

Sean Patrick Thomas, who portrayed Andre’s father, and Shelley Conn, who played Dean Shetty, also shared their sadness and memories of Perdomo.
