Here's everything you need to know about "Gentefied" season 2:
Gentefied Season 2 Release Date And Where To Watch It
The second season of "Gentefied" arrives to Netflix on November 10, 2021. The series returns with another 10-episode season, each episode a half hour of drama, laughter and typical family insanity.
What Is Gentefied?
If the name "Gentefied" rings a bell, it's because this dramedy series is based on another. The original show was a seven-episode webseries, which made its debut at Sundance in 2016. It was a love-letter to Boyle Heights, a downtown Los Angeles neighborhood and an epicenter of Mexican-American culture. The original "Genetefied" set out to put a human face to gentrification, as characters adapted to drastic changes in their neighborhood.The series was created by Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez, executive produced by America Ferrrera and eventually caught Netflix's eye to be turned into a full series. While the webseries centered a new character in each episode, Netflix's "Gentefied" follows the Morales family, three Mexican-American cousins as they struggle to chase the American Dream. For them, this involves helping their immigrant grandfather keep the family taco shop afloat.
The title "Gentefied" is a play on the word "gentrified" but uses the spanish word gente, meaning "our people."
