'High Seas'/'Alta Mar' Season 3: Release date, plot, cast and all you need to know about the show's return

As one YouTube commenter put it, the "pretty people on a boat show" is set to return as Netflix's Spanish original, 'High Seas' aka 'Alta Mar', returns in August with its third season. The plots of the first two seasons were almost completely set on the ship, Bárbara de Braganza, which was making its way from Spain in Europe to Brazil in South America in the 1940s after the end of the World War II. It seemed like 'High Seas' had everything: Nazis, ghosts, stolen gold, to name a few — but the new season is set to take a different direction since the ship docked in Brazil. However, it will still involve the Bárbara de Braganza as an important site, albeit with a new mystery and new characters.


Read on to know more details about the Spanish show's return.

Release date

The third season of 'High Seas' / 'Alta Mar' will be available to stream on Netflix on Friday, August 7, at 12 am PST.


After disembarking in Brazil, sisters Eva and Carolina Villanueva find themselves in the middle of a new mystery in Season 3. Viewers might remember that their maid, Francisca fell off the top deck of the boat after it was revealed that Francisca killed Rosa Marin so that Carolina could marry Fernando Fabregas. The final few minutes of the Season 2 finale revealed Francisca was taken in an ambulance to the hospital but we don't know yet whether she survived. Meanwhile, the season's end also brought heartbreak for Eva after Nicolas Vázquez was reunited with his long-lost wife whom he thought was killed by the Nazis during the war.


Perhaps there's new romance lying ahead for Eva. In the promo for the new season, we are introduced to a new character who works for the British government's intelligence service. Eva teams up with this new British spy to uncover someone who is holding a "deadly virus". To stop the man from killing millions, they must find him on the Bárbara de Braganza before the ship docks at its destination. While it looks like there may be some romantic developments between Eva and this new character, we are still hoping that Nicolas and her patch up their relationship.


The official synopsis for the new season is as follows: "When the Bárbara de Braganza sets sail from Argentina to Mexico, a new mystery emerges again. The Bárbara de Braganza sails off Buenos Aires and it will be up to the Villanueva sisters to find and stop a scientist carrying a deadly secret on board."
