Two months after the death of Latin music star Jenni Rivera, an April 14 premiere date was announced for the final season of her Mun2 reality show “I Love Jenni.”

The third and final season, filmed just before Rivera’s Dec. 9 plane crash in Mexico, will include final footage of Rivera and current footage of her family as they rebuild their lives.

Before the new season rolls out, the network -- part of NBC cable networks and a division of Telemundo -- will present an hourlong special, “We Love Jenni,” which will air April 7 and feature interviews from Mexican singer Thalia, rapper Snoop Lion (aka Snoop Dogg), regional Mexican stars Ticanes de Tijuana, and others.

The queen of banda had been a significant presence on the network. She served as an executive producer of “Jenni Rivera Presents: Chiquis & Raq-C,” a reality show that centered on eldest daughter Janney “Chiquis” Marin, and her friend, Latina radio personality Raquel “Raq-C” Cordova. It would lead to spinoffs, including one that put Jenni at the center.

“I Love Jenni,” which Rivera also executive produced, premiered in March 2011 and gave viewers a glimpse into Rivera’s chaotic lifestyle as a mother of five and a full-charge music star. It would become the highest-rated original reality series for the network.
