Tv Season Info

Season 2 of the comedy series tackles issues that are at the forefront of present-day America. Alex (Marcel Ruiz) is taunted at school with "build the wall"; Lydia (Rita Moreno) has to take her citizenship test, which she finds very difficult and might result in her being deported; Penelope (Justina Machado) recalls how 9/11 changed her life and forced her to make decisions that ultimately caused her struggles with mental illness. However, not everything is dark and gloomy: This season also deals with Elena's (Isabella Gomez) love life, Dwayne's (Todd Grinnell) unwavering support of the family, and a new boyfriend for Penelope.

The cast is divine, the show feels contemporary and smart (its explorations of sexual and gender identity feel particularly profoundly needed), and Rita Moreno can still crack your heart right open.
