Netflix on Thursday canceled Gentefied. A day later, America Ferrera, who executive produced the half-hour Latinx dramedy alongside creators Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez, shared her reaction to Netflix’s decision on Instagram.

“So sad that our beloved Gentefied has reached its end,” she wrote. “I have nothing but immense pride for this gorgeous show and the incredibly talented humans who came together to put something new and deeply authentic on our screens.”

Ferrera praised Lemus and Chávez who “valued and loved us enough to write us into the story with humor, complexity and heart.”

Gentefied, hailed for its authentic Latino representation, could not attract big enough audience for Netflix to order another season as Season 2 did not crack the streamer’s Top 10.

But while Gentefied’s run was ultimately cut short, the show went farther than many other series efforts featuring underrepresented voices and stories. Ferrera was grateful that Gentefied, which follows East Los Angeles Latinos on their respective and collective search for the American Dream, made it to the air and thanked “all who helped make it happen.”

“It’s a small miracle and a monumental feat every time one of our stories is birthed into the world,” she said about the continuing dearth of on-screen representation. “Let’s keep figuring out how to nurture and support our storytellers and stories – there’s still so much work ahead.”

America Ferrera is now a COVERGIRL. As a boundary-breaker and role-model, America is best known for her starring role on hit TV shows “Ugly Betty” and “Superstore”. She embodies a simple and fresh-faced approach to beauty and promotes a philosophy of embracing your natural beauty, regardless of social or cultural standards. She is therefore, the perfect fit for COVERGIRL, which has always partnered with talent who are authentic about their individual beauty and have a story to tell.

“Easy and natural makeup has always been my favorite kind of beauty. I like to feel and look like myself. Between traveling, producing, acting and being a mom, I like to keep my routine to simple steps that make me feel naturally beautiful,” shared America. “For me, beauty is about loving and accepting myself first and foremost and as a COVERGIRL, I want to share that message; Your uniqueness is what makes you beautiful and your authentic identity is your superpower. I am an actor, a director, a businesswoman, a mom, a Latina, a first-generation American; and now, I am a COVERGIRL.”

“We have admired America for years and her message about owning your identity as your superpower. She is intelligent, authentic and fearless and always honors herself, which is exactly what the COVERGIRL brand loves about her,” said Stefano Curti, Chief Brands Officer, Consumer Beauty, at Coty, home to the COVERGIRL brand.

“America is a powerful and thought-provoking role model and an advocate for individualism and inclusion, making her a natural COVERGIRL partner, as we continue to make beauty accessible and inclusive, through products and campaigns that speak to all audiences, including the LatinX community,” Curti added.

America will be featured in campaigns that are yet to be announced.
