Next generation or next gen is a fanfiction trope that focuses on the children (or other descendants) of canon characters. These may appear in canon or be invented original characters. It is a subset of futurefic and is often a form of kidfic, although the next generation characters can be depicted as adults. Next generation stories are particularly common in fandoms where published canon ends with a heterosexual couple getting together, for example Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and Harry Potter, where the Deathly Hallows epilogue gives fans plenty of blank canvases to paint.

Stories often focus on the child finding out his/her parents' history or dealing with the problems of being the offspring of famous parents.
