HBO Cancels Another Latinx Series, 'Gordita Chronicles'

Since HBO Max no longer prioritizes children's programming, the Latinx comedy Gordita Chronicles, set in the 1980s, has been canceled. 

A representative for the streaming service said in a statement, "Live-action kids and family programming will not be part of our programming focus in the immediate future," explaining why the network had to make the "very difficult decision" to cancel Gordita Chronicles. 

Gordita Chronicles followed the life of 12-year-old Dominican girl Cucu Castelli (Olivia Goncalves) as she came of age in Miami. 

It was inspired by creator Claudia Forestieri's upbringing in a Hispanic family in the United States. On June 23, all 10 of the comedy's episodes became available. 

Noah Rico, Savannah Nicole Ruiz, Juan Javier Cardenas, and Diana Maria Riva also appeared in the show. 

The series earned critical acclaim and a loyal following, and we are proud to have worked with creator Claudia Forestieri and our two powerhouse executive producer 

We thank them and the talented cast and crew for creating such a heartfelt, groundbreaking show that connected deeply with a very important demographic
