The upcoming season of the coming-of-age comedy series “Gordita Chronicles” has eventually been cancelled by HBO Max.
The lead characters in the American comedy series, which is set in the 1980s, include Diana-Maria Riva, Juan Javier Cardenas, Olivia Goncalves, Savannah Nicole Ruiz, and Noah Rico.
Just over a month after the 10-episode series’ June 23 premiere, it has been stated that the news is the result of a shift in Warner Bros. Discovery’s objectives.
“Live-action kids and family programming will not be part of our programming focus in the immediate future, and as a result, we’ve had to make the very difficult decision to end ‘Gordita Chronicles’ at HBO Max. The series earned critical acclaim and a loyal following, and we are proud to have worked with creator Claudia Forestieri and our two powerhouse executive producers, Eva Longoria and Zoe Saldana, to bring Cucu’s journey to the screen. We thank them and the talented cast and crew for creating such a heartfelt, groundbreaking show that connected deeply with a very important demographic.” a spokesperson for HBO Max told.
In “Gordita Chronicles,” a girl and her family relocate from Santo Domingo to Miami, leaving all of their friends behind, and the hardships they encounter as they adjust to their new environment.
The show, which debuted on June 23, 2022, received a tonne of positive feedback online.
The creators said, “We are devastated by the bigger programming changes at HBO Max that will prevent our particular show, “Gordita Chronicles,” which is hosted by Latinx comic powerhouse Brigitte Munoz-Liebowitz, from having a second season at its current location.
They further added, “As producers and storytellers who are continually seeking out the authentic and original stories that highlight our community’s joy and talent, we are so proud to have worked on this piece of magic. We continue to be blown away by the overwhelmingly positive critical response coupled with our growing audience numbers, which prove that viewers recognize the importance of this show’s existence and the crucial space it is filling for LatinX content in the media landscape.”, reported.
