Voice actress G.K. Bowes announced today that she is set to return as the character Driana Chase in gen:LOCK Season 2. Driana Chase is the sister of Michael B. Jordan’s Julian Chase character, whose current whereabouts are unknown at the close of Season 1. G.K Bowes made the announcement from the “I am Woman, Hear Me Perform!” voice acting panel at Rooster Teeth’s virtual event, RTX at Home, stating: “I play the main character’s little sister, Driana Chase, and she’s going to be showing up in a big way in Season 2!”
gen:LOCK is executive produced by and stars Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Black Panther), and his production company Outlier Society is co-producing the series alongside WarnerMedia company Rooster Teeth. gen:LOCK takes place fifty years in the future and tells the story of an oppressive authoritarian force that threatens to conquer the world.
The current synopsis of season 2 from Rooster Teeth is as follows:
“On a dying Earth in the midst of a now unstoppable climate collapse, two utterly distinct visions for the future of the human race have come to dominate: The Polity and the Union. The future of humanity, if it is to have one, rests in some form of mechanization or digitization. On opposing sides of this fundamental debate, the Polity and the Union remained locked in a brutal and unforgiving war…
A war the Polity is losing, despite the heroic efforts of their greatest soldiers, the gen:LOCK team – Chase, Cammie, Yaz, Kazu and Val, who continue to upload their minds to their Holon units and fight for their vision of a better future on the front lines.
As we meet the figurehead of the Union – Brother Tate – and the citizens for whom he spills Polity blood, the nature of the conflict between the two sides will be seen in a whole new light. A light that, for Chase, will test his loyalty to the Polity…as he digs deeper into the nature of the war and realizes nothing he thought is what it seems…”
The voice acting is rounded out with Dakota Fanning (The Alienist, Twilight Saga), Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones, Early Man, New Mutants), Golshifteh Farahani (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales), and David Tennant (Jessica Jones, Dr. Who) are all set to return to the series along with Bowes and Jordan.
gen:LOCK is executive produced by Michael B. Jordan of Outlier Society, along with Rooster Teeth’s Matt Hullum and Ryan P. Hall. The series is produced by Rooster Teeth.
