Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love premiered Part 1 in February of this year.

It starred Paulina Chavez and Jencarlos Canela, with Lopez also having a recurring role.
Just two months after premiering Part 2 in July, it was confirmed on Monday that the series would not be renewed for an additional season. According to Deadline, the series will conclude with a Christmas special, in December. The episode was written and filmed before the coronavirus shutdown began in Hollywood.
All 14 episodes of Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love are available for streaming on Netflix. The Christmas special does not yet have an exact premiere date. Stay tuned to Popculture.com for the latest updates!
