The Gordita Chronicles is an American television show which falls under the comedy theme. It features a lot of neon colors, graphic shapes, and crimped hair while being set in 1980s Miami without actually adhering to the theme. Weird times, indeed! It is narrated by the older version of the series’ main protagonist. This program, which focuses on Dominican immigrants (a Dominican is a member of a female religious order founded on similar principles or of the Roman Catholic preaching friar order founded by St. Dominic), was well received by viewers worldwide. The show quickly gained popularity after its initial release due to its hilarity and epic comedy themes. It’s fun to binge-watch this show because it’s so lighthearted. The heart of Gordita Chronicles, however, rather than its social commentary, is what gives it its true power.
The show was created by Claudia Forestieri with Eva Longoria and Zoe Saldaña as its executive producers.
Gordita Chronicles Season 2 Release Date
The show’s producers have not yet decided whether to cancel Gordita Chronicles or renew it for a second season. However, given the show’s popularity, we anticipate hearing some good news soon. Season one released all of its 10 episodes on June 22, 2022, altogether, with each lasting for approximately 20 minutes. The program’s popularity will undoubtedly produce a new season. Even a release sometime in 2024 would not be out of the question.

Gordita Chronicles Season 1 Story
The main character of The Gordita Chronicles is Carlota “Cucu” Castelli, a 12-year-old immigrant from the Dominican Republic who is stubborn but has a good heart. The plot takes place in the hedonistic 1980s when Cucu leaves her home and parochial school in Santo Domingo to live in Miami and pursue her own American Dream. Cucu’s father is a marketing executive for a major airline, and the story is set after his transfer to Miami. With humor, bravado, and a few really bad choices, Cucu tackles the challenges of being an immigrant in a strange new environment.
Although Cucu’s English difficulties are undoubtedly a concern for many recent immigrants, they seem out of place in a show where the Castelli’s only speak flawless English, not Spanish with subtitles, even amongst themselves. This is especially true of season one of the show, which focuses primarily on Cucu’s language difficulties. Things get harder when the family dreams of big things but the paycheck that Cucu’s father receives is small.
