The Starz original series Vida has been greenlit for a second season from showrunner and executive producer Tanya Saracho (How to Get Away with Murder, Looking, Girls).

Vida centers on two Mexican-American sisters from the Eastside of Los Angeles who couldn’t be more different or distanced from each other. Circumstances force them to return to their old neighborhood, where they are confronted by the past and surprising truth about their mother’s identity.

Starz, which produces the series, retains all domestic multiplatform pay-TV and SVOD rights to the series. Lionsgate retains all international and domestic distribution and home entertainment rights.

Vida has delivered on its promise of attracting a young, new Latinx audience to the Starz platform, as we had hoped it would, and we are pleased to be able to announce a second season of the series,” said Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht. “With these new episodes, Tanya and her team now have the opportunity to take audiences even deeper into the lives and community of the Hernandez sisters, and we look forward to bringing the next chapter of their story to life.”
