Vida season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer, news and everything else about the trailblazing Starz series
The good news of 'Vida' getting renewed for season 2 dropped last June and expectations over Starz's beloved show is soaring as the "Desmadre" returns.
Given the buzz the Starz series created, especially among the Latinx community, the highly-anticipated second season is going to be even more explosive, thanks to the baffling cliffhangers which by default called for a season 2.
While a lot of questions await answers in the new season, the show will continue to tackle social issues affecting Latinx communities, such as LGBTQ issues, gentrification, racial prejudice, and discrimination.
The impact of the show was noted as Hispanic-household viewing of 'Vida' nearly tripled since its premiere on May 6, 2018, growing by 171 percent to earn the series the largest Hispanic audience composition for premium series in 2018.
The second season of 'Vida' will premiere on Thursday, May 23, 2019. Its linear premiere is on STARZ on Sunday, May 26 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, airing each episode week-to-week.
The official synopsis reads, "In the second season of 'Vida,' Lyn and Emma begin the monumental task of rebuilding their mother's business while navigating financial constraints, competing developers, and the growing anti-gentrification movement. Lyn and Emma must contemplate the relationships in their lives, including their own, and are forced to dig deep to unearth what their mother’s legacy means to them."
'Vida' 2 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 recently announced — Roberta Colindrez ('I Love Dick') as Nico. Raúl Castillo ('Looking') and Adrian Gonzalez ('Superstore') join as guest stars this season.
The series is a joint creation by Mexican-American actress, playwright and screenwriter Tanya Saracho and the starring cast of Melissa Barrera, Mishel Prada, Ser Anzoategui, Chelsea Rendon, Carlos Miranda, Maria Elena, and Roberta Colindrez.
'Vida' has been nominated for GLAAD awards for 'Outstanding Comedy Series.'
