Vida Season 3 Review

Stan’s Vida returns today for its final season, but just what is in store for the much-loved Hernandez sisters?

Picking up where last season ended, Emma (Misehl Prada) and Lyn (Melissa Barrera) decided to leave their old lives behind, keep the buildings and save the bar, and it was a moderate success until Marisol (Chelsea Rendo) and her friends protested. Meanwhile, Eddy (Ser Anzoategui) had discovered that her wife had lied the entire time and that the girls’ father has in fact alive and well.

When we pick up this season, both Lyn and Emma are finally stable as sisters, while their relationships with Rudy (Adrian Gonzalez) and Nico (Roberta Colindrez), respectively, appear to be going well. But Eddy is about to drop the bomb that will see the sisters face their biggest test yet.

Mari also seems to be evolving and finding her voice, but will she continue to protest Vida’s existence?

Without going into too much more detail, creator Tanya Saracho has crafted a final season that firmly cements Vida’s existence as a groundbreaking show. The characters are so well-developed that saying goodbye is tough.

The end may be approaching, but relish in this final chapter.
