Critics Consensus

Genera+ion's salacious flourishes can feel more try-hard than authentic, but this inclusive portrayal of Gen Z shines when it identifies the universal pains of being a teenager.

    It was funny, amazing I liked how it had different point of views amazing!
  • Dec 19, 2021
    literally amazing. Generation is a show that teenagers should be watching (I'm a teen) There is so much diversity with these characters. This has to be easily the queerest show on Tv and I'm here for it. So colourful, lighthearted and funny. The drama and how messy these characters are is great too.. I loved most of the characters tbh. Everything about this show is amazing and it's a shame HBO cancelled this show. At least we got 16 episodes and not just another 6-8 episodes season like we always get with these teen drama shows. I highly recommend watching.

    the best show i've ever seen i'm not even joking
  • Aug 24, 2021
    this is the most refreshing tv series i have ever watched. it really mirrors how queer teenagers are experiencing and i liked how everyone got their own POVs. its doesn't only focus on few characters, the creators of this show made the delivery of every character's story very smooth. i am hoping that this show will be renewed for another season. everything about the characters are very relatable it HURTS!! i hope that riley and greta end up together because they deserve it, i hope that they will work it out. it is really a show for teenagers, especially queer people, everything about it seems relatable and real. the actors are all great and i think they really really deserve another season so pls HBO i beg of u. i also loved how they portrayed their own characters and how they gave life to it. also the queer representations were great 100%. anyways, watch it if you haven't you won't regret it. #RENEWGENERATION

  • Aug 12, 2021
    Me parece una serie muyyyyy buena, mucha representacim lgbt, problematicas que pueden llegar a tocar a algunos adolescentes, muy entretenida y divertida, se necesita otra temporada.
  • Jul 31, 2021
    série incrível, abordada de formas intensas e ao mesmo tempo simples, impossivel não se apaixonar por cada personagem, todos tem uma papel fundamental e importante, super ansioso para a próxima temporada
