Yahoo reported I Love Jenni was to return, and The Wrap adds that many of Jenni Rivera’s loved ones will be back on the show as it returns to air:

“The season will feature the final footage of Rivera in the month prior to the “La Gran Senora” singer’s death, along with new episodes that will chronicle her family’s efforts to preserve Rivera’s legacy …In addition to Rivera, the series stars her children Chiquis, Jacqui, Michael, Jenicka and Johnny, as well as her sister Rosie.”

Fans of I Love Jenni can expect the show to return on April 24 at 9 PM, mun2, the network confirmed.
