EXCLUSIVE | 'Who Killed Sara?' stars Claudia Ramirez and Manolo Cardona hint many secrets will unfold in Season 2
In a conversation with MEAWW, the actors talk about the future of Latin American shows and how 'Who Killed Sara?' Season 2 answers all our pressing questions
If there is anything that has made dealing with this pandemic more bearable, it would have to be binge-watching TV shows. If you are the type who enjoys a gripping crime thriller, then 'Who Killed Sara?' should be on top of your list.
Season 1 of the show did phenomenally well as it went on to become the most popular foreign language show on Netflix. With a talented cast and a nail-biting storyline that will keep you at the edge of your seat, it comes as no surprise that the anticipation and excitement for Season 2 is evergrowing. If Season 1's cliffhanger ending had you craving for more, then gear up for Season 2. MEAWW had a chance to talk to actors Manolo Cardona and Claudia Ramirez prior to the premiere and turns out, they are just as excited as fans.
The show's synopsis states: "Alex Guzman has to face his worst nightmare: his sister Sara's true personality, whom clearly he never knew at all. At the same time, a buried mystery corpse in his own patio becomes a ticking clock that can make him go back to prison at any time. He has no other choice than to become an investigator and put together all the pieces that will portray Sara’s true and terrible story and her relationship with the Lazcano family."
Having a show on Netflix is an impressive feat in itself. However, that is only half the battle. With the endless amount of Netflix titles under each genre, it's not hard to get lost in the crowd. And while the rapid rate at which people consume content does give most shows a fighting chance at getting recognized, it also means that the show can often get swept in the digital tide.
However, ever since the premiere of Season 1, 'Who Killed Sara?' proved that it was a cut above the rest. Not only did it do well with Spanish viewers, but it also went on to become the most popular non-English language title on the platform. The show drew in an estimated 55M subscribers since its launch, as reported by Deadline.
With Season 2 finally here, those numbers are expected to grow. For actor Cardona, who plays Alex on the show, working with Netflix is a familiar playing field seeing that he's been a part of titles such as 'Narcos'. But with a title like 'Who Killed Sara?', it encourages audiences to check out non-English series as well.
"We are very happy, very humbled and very excited to know that our show is the number one foreign language show. And, hopefully, it's not going to be the last one." Cardona told MEAWW. "I mean, ours is the first one to do that, and Latin America united can have more shows that can go global and connect to the world. That's something that we work towards," he added. The sentiment was shared across the board. "I am very happy and thankful, as are the rest of my colleagues. And well, let's just say we are the first to be the number one foreign language show on the most important platform in the world, Netflix," he added.
"On a personal basis, I am sure we will want and expect not to be the last one, and to have many more Latin American shows to keep showing the way and breaking the ice. We feel so proud. I am sure there will be many more people willing to watch us, to get to know our stories, to watch Spanish series or dubbed series," he said, urging the audiences to explore more Spanish work.
What has fans raving about the show is definitely its intense storyline and interesting characters, which keeps them coming back for more. The show was able to pique curiosity with Season 1 and now everyone is wondering, what will unfold in Season 2?
"Without giving any spoilers," said Ramirez who plays Mariana, "I think that you will see the real progress the characters make and it will help you see why they make the decisions they make." Looks like Season 2 is going to be just as intense as ever.
