Jenni Rivera reality series ‘I Love Jenni’ will still air despite singer’s death

By Daniel S Levine,

Jenni Rivera will be back on TV, four months after the Latin pop star’s tragic death in a plane crash.

NBCUniversal’s mun2 announced today that the third season of I Love Jenni will begin on April 14 at 9 p.m. The episode will also be streamed the next day online.

Rivera died in a plane crash in December, following a performance in Monterey, Mexico. I Love Jenni’s third season will start off with the last footage of the singer, filmed a month before her death. She was 43-years-old.

Her children - Chiquis, Jacqui, Michael, Jenicka and Johnny - and her sister Rosie will also appear in the series. The show will take a new focus after the initial episodes, with Rivera’s family trying to preserve her memory.

Mun2 has also scheduled a special called We Love Jenni that will air on April 7 at 9 p.m. That show will feature a slew of celebrity interviews with Snoop Lion, Extra host Mario Lopez, Mexican stars Tucanes de Tijuana, The Voice’s Carson Daly and more.

Rivera was already one of the most popular Latin American singers at the time of her death. Her album sales skyrocketed just days after her death. Just last week, Billboard announced that she received 11 nominations for the Billboard Latin Music Awards, the most of any female artist. Among the nominations is album of the year for Joyas Prestadas: Pop.
