‘Gentefied’ is an American comedy-drama series that follows the lives of the Morales cousins Erik, Ana, and Chris as they deal with the everyday problems of working at their family taco shop, Mama Fina’s, while caring for Pop, the shop-owner and their grandfather. Each member of the family harbors their own dreams, and the show focuses on the challenges they face to achieve these dreams in a rapidly gentrifying Los Angeles neighborhood.
Created by Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez, the series first premiered in February 2020 on Netflix. The first season of the series received a positive reception from critics and has charmed its way into the hearts of audiences with its witty dialogues, relevant themes, and relatable characters. As the first season ends on a cliffhanger, fans are eager to find out what lies ahead for the lovable Mexican family. If you are curious about what’s in store, we’ve got you covered.

The final moments of the season finale reveal the ICE taking Pop into custody because of an outstanding fine for vandalism. Erik and Lidia are contemplating a move to Palo Alto, California. Chris is offered a chance to go to a culinary school by his father.
