Does Gentefied need a second season?
Definitely. While the Morales family was busy celebrating the birth of Erik's newborn daughter, Delfina, named after Erik's grandmother, Pop was in trouble, being arrested for a fine pending on a vandalism charge six months ago. In the first episode of the series, Pop was arrested for urinating in public and breaking a window, and after his bail we never saw him return to court or pay a fine for his actions. In the final moments, Erik realized that Pop was not there, just to witness the family patriarch being taken by ICE.
Without Pop's knowledge being taken by ICE, the Morales family will be desperate to find him. They may be lucky and discover the charges pending on Pop's behalf, but he may still be deported from the country. Despite being a business owner, Pop is an undocumented immigrant. The future of Erik and Lidia's dreams of moving to Palo Alto, California, may have to be suspended until Pop is brought home and Mama Fina's future is secure.
Chris finally decided to dedicate his cooking skills to Mama Fina, but his father dropped a huge bomb, offering Chris the chance to attend cooking school. With continued chaos and uncertainty with the Morales, Chris may not be going to school anytime soon.
After a disagreement between the couple separating from Ana and Yessika, will the pair be reunited in the second season? Yessika believed that participating in a culinary festival would have served gentrifiers, but Ana was more concerned with keeping mother Fina alive.
Finally, Mama Fina's future is in great danger after it was revealed that Vivian, an art expert, plans to turn Mama Fina into a “themed pop-up dining experience”.

Here's the deal: this isn't just a “Latinx show”, it's a human story full of heart and humor. But it is also true that if we want more Latinx content, we have to prove that there is an audience for it. Give them a watch! I have 2 episodes in love with this show and cast @gentefied ❤️ https://t.co/FPnlfyBwXC

When is the Netflix release date for Gentefied second season?
Now that the series has been renewed, we can speculate on the possible release date. If it weren't for the coronavirus pandemic, we would be more inclined to say that the series could have returned early next year.
Unfortunately, with all the uncertainty around when the blocking measures will be removed and when production continues, it may be a while before we see Gentefied second season on Netflix.
At this point, our forecast is that Gentefied will return to Netflix in the summer of 2021 or fall 2021.
