The series is created by Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez, the duo behind Sundance darling Gente-fied: The Digital Series, and Macro. “Gentefied” will be coming back for eight more episodes, which will be two fewer episodes than its freshman outing.
Season 1 of “Gentefied” premiered in Feb 2020, and the series was picked for season 2 in May 2020 after it received a lot of positive feedback and reviews for its debut season, and across the critics, it was praised and especially the performance of Joaquín Cosio in particular.
Created by Chicano first-gen writers Lemus and Chávez, Gentefied is a half-hour dramatic comedy adapted from the 2017 Sundance digital series of the same name. Described as a badass bilingual series about family, community, brown love, and the displacement that disrupts it all, Gentefied follows three Mexican-American cousins who struggle to chase the American Dream, even while that same dream threatens the things they hold most dear: their neighborhood, their immigrant grandfather, and the family taco shop. Set in a rapidly changing Los Angeles, the Spanglish dramedy navigates important themes like identity, class, and balancing insta-fame with translating memes for their parents. But most importantly, Gentefied settles once and for all how to pronounce Latinx.
It stars stars Karrie Martin, JJ Soria, Carlos Santos, Annie Gonzalez, Julissa Calderon, Bianca Melgar, Alejandro Patiño and Joaquín Cosio.
“Gentefied” season 2 will return in early 2022. Season 1 is currently streaming @ https://www.netflix.com/title/80198208
