Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht announced today that the STARZ Original series 'Vida' has been greenlit for a second season from Showrunner and Executive Producer Tanya Saracho. 

Rotten Tomatoes gave the show a perfect score of 100% and described it as "Certified Fresh". The series also won the Audience Award at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival. If you have not heard about or seen Starz's show 'Vida' yet, let this be a precursor as to how amazing the show is.

It is a thrilling and thoughtful show full of twists and turns as it follows two young American-Mexican estranged sisters, Lynn and Emma who return to their old neighborhood after their mother passes away. Once there, they discover long-buried secrets about their mother's identity. 

In the season 1 finale, Lyn finally realizes the impact she is having on Johnny’s life, and Emma learns the true value of the bar, but is it too late for Eddy? We will definitely find out when the show returns with season 2. 

'Vida' stars Melissa Barrera ('Club de Cuervos') as Lyn, Mishel Prada ('Fear The Walking Dead: Passage') as Emma, Ser Anzoategui ('East Los High') as Eddy, Chelsea Rendon (Bright) as Marisol, Carlos Miranda (The Bling Ring) as Johnny, and Maria Elena Laas (Vital Signs) as Cruz.

The show has been produced by Tanya Saracho alongside Big Beach TV’s Robin Schwartz, Peter Saraf and Marc Turtletaub with Stephanie Langhoff. 

Starz president and CEO, Chris Albrecht shares, "Vida has delivered on its promise of attracting a young, new Latinx audience to the STARZ platform, as we had hoped it would, and we are pleased to be able to announce a second season of the series. With these new episodes, Tanya and her team now have the opportunity to take audiences even deeper into the lives and community of the Hernandez sisters, and we look forward to bringing the next chapter of their story to life."
