Romantic comedy, With Love, has been officially renewed for an upcoming second season premiering on Amazon Prime. The new season will last 6 episodes due a remarkable 100 percent rating from Rotten Tomatoes. Series creator Calderon Kellett states “when you’re marginalized in any capacity, and you just never see yourself at the center of the story, you don’t get all those layers." Simply put, Calderon feels like she really does get to write history as she goes on to say "I get to show an Afro-Latino man and a Latina woman fall in love in a two-minute short film… to an Afro-Cuban song! The fact that I got to make this show is still crazy to me.”
