The Riveras were the first Hispanic family in the U.S. to expose their lives on reality TV in the record setting series I love Jenni, which focused on the life of the most successful Regional Mexican singer, Jenni Rivera. Jenni’s legacy continues with her children on The Riveras, and the key to the spin-off’s success has been its relatability.

This new season, fueled with love, drama, madness and lots of life changes, finds Chiquis putting it all on the line for love, but will choosing Lorenzo mean stepping away from her siblings? No matter what, she’s ready to face the rumors and the gossip, even within her own inner circle. Jacqie is still struggling to finalize her divorce but knows it’s time to get busy moving on and that means recording music, chasing her dreams and learning to open her heart to love again, all as a single mom. Mike is literally building a life of his own, having found a home to remodel and a new career. As Chiquis and Lorenzo take time away from the family, Johnny and Jenicka are trying to grow up without the motherly advice of their big sis, but when they turn Chiquis’ house into a dorm for all their friends, can she really turn a blind eye? The Riveras are growing up but they’ll never grow apart!

The Riveras is Executive Produced by Chiquis Rivera, Irune Ariztoy for UNIVERSO, and Edward Paige and Liane Su for Blank Paige Productions the same production house that produced I love Jenni.
