“I’m incredibly proud of Red Table Talk, and thrilled to build upon this franchise with my family and with Gloria, Emily and Lili,” the actress told the publication. “Red Table Talk has created a space to have open, honest and healing conversations around social and topical issues, and what’s most powerful for me is hearing people’s stories and engaging with our fans in such a tangible way on the Facebook Watch platform. I’m excited to see the Estefans put their spin on the franchise and take it to new places.”

'Red Table Talk' has been a huge success for Facebook.

The show is beloved by fans and is one of Facebook Watch's biggest successes, so it makes sense why the social media giant wants to expand that brand. The show's first episode garnered more than 27 million views when it premiered in 2018. It also received a Daytime Emmy Award nomination in 2019 in the talk show category.
