The show starring late Mexican pop star Jenni Rivera will go on, as “I Love Jenni” is set to debut new episodes, four months after the singer was tragically killed in a plane crash.
The third season of “I Love Jenni” will premiere April 14 at 9/8c on mun2, NBCUniversal’s cable channel that focuses on Latino programming.
The new episodes will feature footage shot the month before Rivera died at age 43, just as she was set to breakout in America after signing a deal to star in an ABC sitcom. The episodes will also include new footage featuring Rivera’s family, including her five children and her sister, as they cope with her shocking death in the December plane crash in Northern Mexico that took the lives of seven people.
The network also announced Tuesday its plans to air a one-hour tribute special called “We Love Jenni” on April 7, featuring appearances by Carson Daly, host of “The Voice“, singer Thalia, and “Extra’s” Mario Lopez.
