Hulu is sending off a drama series with a “finale event.” The streaming service announced plans today to say farewell to its teen series “East Los High,” which debuted in 2013 and has run for four seasons.
Filmed primarily in East Los Angeles, the Latino-focused high school series will go out with a 60-minute episode, “East Los High: Finale Event,” premiering this fall.
“The long-awaited return of ‘East Los High’ arrives with a finale event that bids farewell to the Emmy-nominated Hulu original,” Hulu said in today’s announcement. “Season four of ‘East Los High’ left fans on the edge of their seats with the most shocking cliffhangers in the show’s history. Eight months later — the crew prepare to leave high school behind and maybe even East LA as they begin a journey of self-discovery and learn the true meaning of love, family and friendship in this romantic, sexy and emotional series finale.”
The series is a Wise Entertainment production created by Kathleen Bedoya and Carlos Portugal.
“By featuring underrepresented voices and bringing awareness to issues relevant to the Latino community, the series provides a realistic account of Latino youth culture in the U.S. today,” the announcement notes. “‘East Los High’s Finale Event’ pays tribute to the popular characters fans have followed during the past four seasons, reminding us that their universal stories will continue to grow, prosper and transcend.”
The finale event will be directed by Katie Elmore Mota and Carlos Reza and written by Kathleen Bedoya, Luisa Leschin and Cris Franco. Katie Elmore Mota and Mauricio Mota of Wise Entertainment will executive produce along with creator and executive producer Kathleen Bedoya.
