'Theordita Chronicles' on HBO Max has been canceled after one season ...

Gordita Chronicles, a coming-of-age comedy on HBO Max, has been canceled after one season, according to Deadline. The first season launched on the platform a month ago.

Cucu Gordita Castelli, a Latina journalist, tells the story of a chubby Dominican girl of the 80s who moves from Santo Domingo to Miami, Florida, where her father must relocate for his job. Topics such as love, resilience, and opportunity are explored as Gorditas eccentric family braves the status quo to reach the American Dream.

A spokesperson for the streamer spoke with Deadline about the programming change and the regrettable decision to cancel the Gordita Chronicles, saying: "The Gordita Chronicles"

We have had to make the very difficult decision to put the Gordita Chronicles on HBO Max in the immediate future. We are grateful to Eva Longoria (who also brilliantly directed the pilot) and Zoe Saldana for bringing Cucus' journey to the screen.

Eva Longoria and Zoe Saldana, the executive producers of the show, responded to the news and expressed their displeasure with the decision:

We are disappointed by the larger programming changes at HBO Max that will not allow our special show, Gordita Chronicles, created by Latinx comedy legend Brigitte Munoz-Liebowitz, to have a second season at its original location. As producers and storytellers who are continually seeking out the authentic and original stories that highlight our communitiess joy and talent, we are so proud to have worked on this piece of magic.

Claudia Forestieri, who wrote the pilot and served as executive producer, directed the series at Bons Mots Emporium, in which Jennifer Robinson and Chris King worked as executive producers. Longoria served as showrunner and executive producer for UnbeliEVAble Entertainment. Saldana, Mariel Saldana and Cisely Saldana served as executive producers for Cinestar Pictures.

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.

The silver lining of the story is that HBO has stated that live-action children's and family programming would not be part of their immediate programming future, so there is still a possibility that these types of programs may be added to the HBO Max media library again someday.
