The coming-of-age comedy Gordita Chronicles has been cancelled by HBO Max after one season, according to Deadline. On the platform, the first season debuted more than a month ago.
In Gordita Chronicles, Latina reporter Cucu "Gordita" Castelli tells the tale of her childhood in the 1980s in the Dominican Republic, when she and her family moved to Miami, Florida, since her father had to migrate for work.
The show examines what it's like for a Dominican immigrant to live in the United States, and it also addresses themes of opportunity, love, and resilience as Gordita's unconventional family defies convention to pursue the "American Dream" on their own terms.
It was well-received by both the critics and the public.
Claudia Forestieri, who wrote the pilot and acted as executive producer, developed the show.
Josh Berman, Chris King, and Jennifer Robinson from Osprey Productions, located in SPT, also acted as executive producers.
Bons Mots Emporium's executive producer and showrunner was Brigitte Munoz-Liebowitz.
The pilot was directed by Longoria, who also acted as UnbeliEVAble Entertainment's executive producer.
For Cinestar Pictures, Salda, Mariel Saldana, and Cisely Salda worked as executive producers.
Gordita Chronicles featured the acting talents of Olivia Goncalves as Cucu Castelli; Cosette Hauer as Ashley Bell; Juan Javier Cardenas as Victor Castelli; Savannah Nicole Ruiz as Emilia; Diana-Maria Riva as Adela Castelli; and more.
