Justice Smith Is Slamming Comparisons Between His New Show 'Genera+ion' & 'Euphoria'

Justice Smith is not here for those comparing his new HBO Max series Genera+ion to Euphoria.

The 25-year-old actor stars as Chester in the show, which just premiered it’s first three episodes on the streaming platform.

While speaking with E! News, Justice shared that she is “its own beast” and the only way it is “similar to Euphoria in that there are teenagers on the show.”

“It’s this crazy double standard that we do as a society where we view all content that has high schoolers or teenagers in it as being a part of the same monolith,” he added about the comparisons. “But then, we don’t do that with any other generation. We don’t say that shows about people in their 30s are all alike, you know, but for some reason when it’s high schoolers these are all the same. And they’re not.”

“When you’re showcasing shows about modern times it’s like, everyone exists within the same cultural zeitgeist,” Justice continued. “So, of course, there’s gonna be like, cell phones are gonna be a thing or TikTok is gonna be a thing or makeup is gonna be a thing ’cause this is just what kids are doing nowadays.”

He also added that Genera+ion is “gay as f–k” and that they are “trying to highlight queerness and how predominate it is in generation Z.”

You can check out the trailer for the series HERE. The first three eps are out now, with the next two on March 18th, two on March 25th and one more on April 1st. Eight more episodes will comprise the second half of the season, premiering later this year.
