Will the Colombian romantic comedy series return on Netflix?
Always A Witch is a Colombian romantic-comedy series on Netflix that follows a 17th-century slave who also happens to be a witch.
After accepting a deal that would save her from getting burned in the stake, the young witch time-traveled to modern Colombia.
Although she vowed never to use her powers again, circumstances arise that will force her to break the deal, for once a witch, 'always a witch.'
After releasing two seasons, let's find out what's next for the series.
'Always A Witch' is yet to get renewed for season 3 as of this writing. The show currently has a total of 18 episodes spanning two seasons on Netflix.
Season 2 dropped on the streaming platform in February this year, but Netflix has remained quiet since then regarding its renewal status.
The show's renewal is still pending, so it's unlikely for the series to be able to release new episodes in February next year.
Season 1 and Season 2 were both released on the platform in February. Season 1 premiered on 19 February 2019 with 10 episodes, while season 2 was released on 28 February 2020 with 8 episodes.
'Always A Witch' follows Carmen Eguilez, a 17th Century slave and witch who fell in love with the slave owner's son, Cristobal.
During that period, a relationship between a black slave and a white man is unaccepted by society. When Cristobal's mother, Isabel, found out about their relationship, she accused Carmen of witchcraft, and the latter was sentenced to burn at the stake.
Before the execution, the powerful wizard Aldemar offered Carmen an escape.
Her option is to travel in time when people do not believe in witches.
However, there's a catch, she must promise never to use her powers again.
Desperate for her life, Carmen agreed, and she was transported to present-day Colombia.
No longer bound by the shackles of slavery, Carmen was able to start a new life and even managed to get into college.
Unfortunately, her true nature is bound to come out no matter how much she tries to hide it.
In season 2, we saw Carmen trying to improve her powers to travel back in time and save her mother.
As the season progresses, we saw how Carmen managed to control and hone her powers.
If the show gets renewed for season 3, we're likely to see a more powerful Carmen embark on a different adventure, more compelling than the previous seasons.
The show is yet to secure a renewal, so there's no official cast list yet. Albeit, the following main cast will most likely reprise their roles should the show get renewed for season 3.
The main cast includes Angely Gaviria as Carmen Eguiluz, Lenard Vanderaa as Cristobal De Aranoa, Carlos Quintero as León, Sebastián Eslava as Esteban, Cristina Warner as Isabel de Aranoa, Sofia Bernal Araujo as Alicia, Valeria Henríquez as Mayte, and Dylan Fuentes as Johnny Ki among others.
Since we are still waiting for Always A Witch's season 3 renewal, here's season 2's official trailer for the meantime.
Always A Witch is available on Netflix.
