Over the weekend, the Gen V producers released a moving statement following the news, penning: ‘We can’t quite wrap out heads around this. 

‘For those of us who knew him and worked with him, Chance was always charming and smiling, an enthusiastic force of nature, an incredibly talented performer, and more than anything else, just a very kind, lovely person. 

‘Even writing about him in the past doesn’t make sense. We are so sorry for Chance’s family, and we are grieving the loss of our friend and colleague. Hug your loved ones tonight.’

In the wake of his death, production for the second season of Gen V has been officially delayed.

The cast and producers were scheduled to gather on Saturday afternoon for the shows’ first Season 2 table read, in preparation for filming commencing on April 8 in Toronto, according to Deadline.

The series’ creators are now tasked with deciding to revise the scripts to bid farewell to Chance’s character or seek a replacement actor for the role, per the outlet.

Since news of his death, tributes flooded in for Perdomo including from his co-stars in the Amazon Prime superhero series, Patrick Schwarzenegger, who led the tributes to the star.

The son of Arnold Schwarzenegger, 30, plays Luke Riordan/Golden Boy in The Boys’ spin-off, tweeted: ‘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 GenV. RIP Chance ❤️❤️❤️’
