Not too many shows have the ability to influence pop culture and have the staying power to last for multiple seasons. And while we’ve seen multiple shows come and go over the years, one that still serves up nostalgia vibes is George Lopez.
After making its debut in 2002, George Lopez gave audiences a fictionalized look at the life of comedian George Lopez. Also starring Constance Marie, Masiela Lusha, and Luis Armand Garcia, the show gave us hearty laughs and the opportunity to learn valuable lessons.
Since the show came to an end in 2007, many fans want to know what the cast has been up to. The good news is that most of the cast still keeps in touch, and are planning on working together again.
"It was that time we all went to George Lopez's house to work on a top-secret mission," Constance captioned a selfie with her former co-stars on Instagram. "Love them all!!"

Luis Armand Garcia (Max Lopez)
While other cast members have continued to thrive in their acting careers, Luis had decided to take a back seat to Hollywood. It appears that he has moved on from life in the spotlight since he hasn't appeared in any TV shows or films since the end of George Lopez.
