Netflix has renewed the half-hour comedy drama series “Gentefied” for season 2, from 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.
In addition, Gentefied‘s cast and creators will reunite for a live virtual table read, hosted by George Lopez, on Wednesday, May 20 on Netflix is a Joke YouTube channel. They’ll be raising awareness for Proyecto Pastoral, a nonprofit in Boyle Heights that is addressing the impacts of COVID-19 on the low income families and residents they serve in the neighborhood.
“Gentefied” has received a lot of positive feedback and reviews for its season 1 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, and Joaquín Cosio.
“Gentefied” season 1 is streaming @ https://www.netflix.com/title/80198208
