The team behind Gen V is still grappling with the tragic loss of Chance Perdomo.

The actor, who played student Andre Anderson on the spinoff series of The Boys, died in March at the age of 27 after a motorcycle accident, his rep confirmed to PEOPLE at the time, and the Prime Video series has addressed how his absence will affect the forthcoming second season.

Gen V’s producers wrote in a statement shared on X (formerly Twitter) on May 5, “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.”

“We won’t be recasting the role, because no one can replace Chance,” the statement continued. “Instead, we have been taking the time and space to recraft our Season 2 storylines as we begin production in May.”

The producers added that the show will “honor Chance and his legacy” in its upcoming season.

Following Perdomo’s death at the end of March, Deadline reported that Gen V had delayed filming on season 2, as the cast had been scheduled for their first table read on the day he died.
