HBO Max has decided to cancel its original comedy series Gordita Chronicles after one season. The first and only season was released on June 23, 2022.

HBO Max released the following statement on the cancellation: "Live-action kids and family programming will not be part of our programming focus in the immediate future, and as a result, we've had to make the very difficult decision to end Gordita Chronicles at HBO Max. 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 producers, Eva Longoria (who also masterfully directed the pilot) and Zoe Saldaña, to bring Cucu's journey to the screen. We thank them and the talented cast and crew for creating such a heartfelt, groundbreaking show that connected deeply with a very important demographic."

The comedy starred Olivia Goncalves, Diana Maria Riva, Juan Javier Cardenas, Savannah Nicole Ruiz, Noah Rico, Cosette Hauer and Dascha Polanco.

Claudia Forestieri created the comedy, with Brigitte Munoz-Liebowitz serving as showrunner for the first season. They executive produced with Eva Longoria, Zoe Saldaña, Mariel Saldaña, Cisely Saldaña, Josh Berman, Jennifer Robinson and Chris King. Sony Pictures Television, Osprey Productions, Bons Mots Emporium, UnbeliEVAble Entertainment and Cinestar Pictures produced.
