The final episode of the first season of 'Gentefied' ended on quite a cliffhanger. What is going to happen to Pop? This is apart from all the other cliffhangers the series had concluded its first season. And now, it looks like we might get some answers. Netflix has renewed the half-hour dramedy for Season 2, which will have eight episodes this time compared to its 10-episode first season.

Set in a rapidly changing Los Angeles, the Spanglish dramedy hardly took any time to become a fan-favorite. Interesting, eccentric characters navigate important themes like identity, class and balancing insta-fame, each struggle found relatable by different sections of the audience. 

There are characters who are also struggling to chase their own American Dream, even when their dreams threaten things dear to them: Their neighborhood, their immigrant grandfather and the family taco shop. We're keen to know what's in store next for the Morales family of Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. And even though season 2 for 'Gentefied' is a long while away, here is everything you need to know about it. 

Release date

The official release date for Season 2 of 'Gentefied' is not revealed yet. Stay tuned for updates. 

Plot

'Gentefied' centers around three Mexican-American cousins, who live in the Latino neighborhood of Boyle Heights in Los Angeles. As they try to figure out their intricately intertwined lives, they struggle to keep the business afloat as rents increase and the neighborhood slowly gentrifies.

"The world is now seeing what we see at home," Honduran-American actress Karrie Martin said about playing a character in the bilingual and bicultural show, a character that is similar to how she grew up in her household.
