Read more details, below, about the show.
What is Lopez vs Lopez about?
On Lopez vs Lopez, viewers see George and Mayan portray a fictionalized version of their real-life father-daughter relationship. NBC's description of the series reads, "A working-class family comedy about dysfunction, reconnection, and all the pain and joy in between."
Who is in the Lopez vs Lopez cast?
In addition to Lopez and Mayan, Selenis Leyva plays Mayan's mother and George's ex-wife; Mayan's boyfriend, Quinten, is played by Matt Shively; and Brice Gonzalez plays Mayan and Quinten's 5-year-old son, Chance.
Is Lopez vs Lopez a sequel to The George Lopez Show?
No, it's a brand new show. However, The George Lopez Show can be streamed on Peacock if you want your fix.
That said, a December episode of Lopez vs Lopez did feature some familiar faces from The George Lopez Show, including Constance Marie, Valente Rodriguez, Belita Moreno, and Luis Armand Garcia.
On this particular episode, Mayan told TheWrap, "In a way, we were like, ‘We want to pay homage to The George Lopez Show. Also there’s a full circle moment for not only myself but for my dad as well. It was one of the first Latinx shows, with a whole Latin cast, and to think of where it is now — that started over 20 years ago and to where now we’re doing it together.”
She continued, “I think with this show, it was really a no-brainer of if everyone’s available, we got to do this for not only ourselves, but for the fans, the people that have loved this show for so many years and have listened with their families. And that’s also generational, and also being able to introduce a whole new era, a whole new generation to the original show … Being able to have them all together was really beautiful.”
