The new drama will return for Season 2.
June 12, 2018
Starz announced today that Vida has been picked up for a second season. The drama just recently concluded its six-episode freshman run that, while short, garnered a healthy amount of critical acclaim.
Since its premiere on May 6, the series has gone on to earn the year's largest Hispanic audience composition for a premium series. It was also an Audience Award winner at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival, with viewers impressed by its intriguing storytelling and strong cast.
Vida follows Lyn and Emma, two Mexican-American sisters from the East side of Los Angeles who are nothing like each other. Though while their differences have caused them to become estranged, circumstances arise that force them to return to their old neighborhood and confront the past.
Look for Season 2 of Vida in 2019.

My biggest beef with this show is Marisol. She is "wasted space" on the show. I can tolerate "Sweetbitter", but I DVR both shows now so I can fast forward through parts I think are uninteresting.

My biggest beef with the series is that the Spanish speaking parts have Spanish language subtitles even if I choose English subtitles. Like they're not even trying to include non-spanish-speaking audiences. Will still watch season 2, though. Not for its politics, but because it's an interesting story, and I like the leads.
I'd be nihilistic if it mattered

Little to no substance here... just presented in "Spanglish" to be ethno-popular. Storylines are muddles, convoluted, and largely uninteresting and non-extraordinary. There's nothing really here.... except that it's a show based around Latinas, which is not the norm. Of course, Starz also aired "Sweetbitter" which is the same muddled, convoluted, largely uninteresting and non-extraordinary story about an Ohio white girl. So... why renew either?
