The maker of 'Money Heist' takes the world by storm again with another glitzy thriller following three prostitutes on the run. After a cliff-hanging first season, will there be 'Sky Rojo' season 2?
Netflix finally dropped 'Sky Rojo,' the anticipated crime drama series from the maker of 'Money Heist,' and needless to say, it didn't fall short of expectations.
The pulpy thriller is now making waves, with mostly favorable reviews. Several critics have compared the series' cinematography with the films of Quentin Tarantino.
The series is still very fresh out of premiere as of this writing. However, some fans can't help but ask if another season is already on the way.
Let's find out.
Renewal Status: Renewed
'Sky Rojo' was already renewed for season 2, long before the pandemic disrupted the film and television industry. Netflix pre-ordered two seasons of the Spanish series in 2019, and filming wrapped up in October 2020. A total of 16 episodes were initially ordered. The first eight episodes premiered on March 19, 2021. Naturally, the eighth episode ended in a cliffhanger because more episodes are already on the way.
Talking about their creative approach on the show, creator Alex Pina and series co-creator Esther Martínez Lobato said via Slanted:
"We wanted Sky Rojo to have the same frenetic action as always, but to use that 25-minute runtime to underline the dynamic nature of the plot: the getaway, the race for survival. The third act of a movie or an episode is where all the energy converges to produce the most vibrant explosion of all the conflicts that are being narrated. What we set out to do was to make a constant third act, to funnel our entire story through that frenzied energy."
We don't have the release date information for season 2 yet, but assuming that filming for 'Sky Rojo' season 2 is already done, the new episodes could release by the end of 2021, or a year after season 1 premiered (March 2022).
The streaming giant often releases one season per year for their shows, although there are some exceptions to other titles. 'Money Heist' (Pina's most popular series on Netflix) only had 9 months gap between season 3 and season 4 releases due to its popularity. Without the pandemic, we would've expected season 5 to drop sooner too.
We will continue to monitor for more updates from the streaming giant.
The heist plan went incredibly awry in the final episode of season 1. Wendy is wounded after getting shot by the henchman Moisés. Coral unexpectedly revives Romeo, who had an overdose at Las Novias Club.
If you think that a lot of things had already happened in season 1, Coral teases "the game has only just begun" right before the season ended.
There are still plenty of dangers looming around for the three girls. For the upcoming season, it looks like Coral will have to form a fake alliance with Romeo while thinking of the best ways to rob him so she, Wendy, and Gina can run away. Coral might have to map out more strategic plans while staying in the Las Novias Club while Wendy and Gina will have to work together outside.
The rest of the characters also had their troubles to attend to for the upcoming season. Moisés will have to save himself from getting buried alive in his vehicle. He may have to face some repercussions after revealing to his brother Christian that he killed their abusive father with Romeo's assistance.
We are expecting to see our main cast members return to season 2 to pick up where the last season has ended.
Coral (Verónica Sánchez), Wendy (Lali Espósito), and Gina (Yany Prado) are coming back to exact revenge on their pimp Romeo (Asier Etxeandia).
We are also expecting to see Christian (Enric Auquer), and Moisés (Miguel Ángel Silvestre).
Expect the official trailer for 'Sky Rojo' Season 2 to drop a few months from now. In the meantime, we will leave you with the season 1 trailer to enjoy.
We always update our articles, so you can rest assured we will drop the season 2 trailer here once it gets released.
