'Gentefied' Canceled By Netflix After 2 Seasons

Netflix has canceled the Latinx comedy-drama series Gentefied after two seasons.

Deadline exclusively broke the news that Netflix has made the decision to cancel the series. This comes in the wake of the show’s second season premiere on Nov. 10. 

Created by Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chavez, Gentefied followed a group of friends from East Los Angeles as they try to pursue the American Dream. The series' stars included Joaquín Cosío, J.J. Soria, Karrie Martin Lachney, Carlos Santos,, Julissa Calderon, Melinna Bobadilla, Manuel Uriza, Ivana Rojas and Clarissa Thibeaux.

As Deadline reports, across its two seasons, Gentefied never appeared in the Netflix Top 10, which may have factored in its cancellation. 

The official description for season 2: [The] Morales cousins fight alongside Pop on his arduous battle to stay in the country, all while dealing with new love, new babies, estranged fathers, and of course, tracking down Bad Bunny at a Halloween party. They’ll fight to thrive, but along the way will question where they truly belong in a world made up of borders, family separation, and the potential loss of their beloved taco shop, Mama Fina’s. Because what’s life without free tacos?"

The series was executive produced by Lemus, Chávez, Charles D. King and Marta Fernandez of MACRO, America Ferrera of Take Fountain, Aaliyah Williams, Kim Roth and Teri Weinberg of Yellow Brick Road.
