Season 2 of the Rooster Teeth anime, Gen: LOCK, is here, and we'll tell you all you need to know, including the plot. Gen: LOCK, a sci-fi mecha anime series created by Gray Haddock, premiered its first season in 2019 to critical acclaim.
This is a dystopian future in which a worldwide culture war has broken out between two political factions: the totalitarian Union, which strives to construct a collective monoculture, and the Polity, a coalition that advocates civic liberty and freedom of speech.
An experimental technological program (the titular gen: LOCK) permits the minds of Polity recruits to be transferred to enormous mecha known as Holons so that they can defeat the Union. Along with David Tennant as the show's inventor Dr. Rufus Weller, and Dakota Fanning as Chase's previous lover Miranda Worth, the cast of gen: LOCK also includes actors Dakota Fanning and David Tennant.
Michael B. Jordan plays veteran pilot Julian Chase, Maisie Williams plays Scottish hacker Cammie MacCloud, and Kichi Yamadera plays ex-military sergeant Kazu Iida in the gen: LOCK cast.
When the second season of gen: LOCK was announced for release in 2020, it had already been extended for a third season in 2019. When season 2 premiered in November 2021, spoilers were kept to a minimum for those who haven't seen it yet.

Official Trailer Reveal For Gen: Lock Season 2
The first official trailer for Season 2 of Gen: Lock has been published. The final battle against Union in LA looks at risk for the Polity group. Because of the Union, Julian Chase (Michael B. Jordan) is on the point of mental breakdown.
The Unity's military chief, Col. Raquel Marin (Monica Rial), believes that the gen: LOCK technology may be outmoded and that the Unity would need a new, possibly fatal weapon to win the war. Here's a direct link to the movie trailer.
The Storyline of Gen: LOCK Season 2
Season 2 of gen: LOCK was written by a diverse and inclusive crew that included Daniel Dominguez, Maasai Singleton, Evan Narcisse, Kristle Peluso, and Gavin Hignight, according to a Variety exclusive.
With the help of Michael B. Jordan and his production firm Outlier Society (who also created gen: LOCK), a campaign called #changehollywood was started to increase the representation of minorities in the entertainment industry.
It was revealed in the same exclusive that gen: LOCK season 2 would feature more savage fights between the Polity and Union, new character introductions, and surprising story twists. Gen: official LOCK's season 2 summary may be found below:
There are now two radically divergent ideas for the future of humanity on a dying Earth: The Polity and the Union. The Polity and the Union were involved in a vicious and cruel conflict on opposite sides of this fundamental dispute. If humankind is to have a lot, it will have to be mechanized or digitalized.
Despite the brave efforts of the Gen: Lock team — Chase, Cammie, Yaz, Kazu, and Val – who continue to upload their thoughts to their Holon units and fight for their vision of a better future on the front,, lines, the Polity is losing this battle.
Seeing Brother Tate in action and the folks for whom he sheds Polity blood will provide light on the essence of the battle between the two sides. After digging more into the war and seeing that “nothing he thought is what it appears to be,” Chase is forced to question his commitment to Polity.
