If you are an avid Kodi user, you must’ve used the Genesis back in the day as it was one of the best Kodi addons. Unfortunately, Genesis along with Exodus, Elysium and a bunch of other unofficial ones was shut down. But, just because Genesis was shut down, that doesn’t mean you can’t install it anymore. The new updated version of Genesis is now available as Genesis Reborn. You can follow the steps given in this guide to install Genesis Reborn on Kodi 17.6 Krypton as well as Kodi Jarvis. For your convenience, I’ve tested this particular Addon on PC, Mac, Android, Amazon FireStick, and Raspberry Pi. It is currently working without any issues. If you find any problems while installing or streaming, report in comments below.
Update: Genesis Reborn is no longer functional. You may look at other working addons for movies and shows on our Best Kodi Addons list.
Note: Kodi Add-ons are like search engines and finds the content you are looking for. These should not be used to stream copyright content which is unlawful. If found streaming illegal content, you could get into serious legal troubles.

Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Kodi users are strongly advised to connect a VPN while streaming. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
