'High Seas' Season 3: Meet Ivana Baquero, Jon Kortajarena and rest of the cast of the Netflix series
The third season of 'High Seas' is set to be released on Netflix and when we catch up with the Villanueva sisters, they have spent a year and a half in Argentina
In Netflix's Spanish original drama 'High Seas' aka 'Alta Mar', we meet sisters Eva and Carolina Villanueva who are traveling to Argentina from Spain aboard the ship, Bárbara de Braganza. The ship is owned by Carolina's fiance Fernando Fábregas. On their way to the ship, a distraught woman runs ahead of their car and begs them for help. The Villanueva sisters help the woman named Sofia sneak into the ship as a stowaway. Unfortunately, that's where the troubles begin.
It turns out Sofia is not so innocent and the Villanueva sisters come to learn that their father, who they thought was dead, was, in fact, alive. They even learn that he worked with Nazis during the Second World War and was trying to uncover Nazi gold from the ship with Sofia's help. In the second season, the Barbara de Braganza answers a distress call and sets out to rescue people who have supposedly survived a sinking ship. But as it turns out, the team of rescues, led by Casandra Lenormand, were looking for the killers of Casandra's sister, with whom Fernando was having an affair with just before his engagement to Carolina.
By the end of the second season, most of these mysteries get solved, though Sofia escapes. Eva, who had begun a romantic relationship with Nicolas Vázquez, an officer on the Barbara de Braganza, hopes to start anew with her writing career in Argentina. However, Nicolas's wife (whom he presumed dead after being taken by the Nazis) comes back and Eva and Nicolas presumably go their separate ways.
The third season of 'High Seas' is set to be released on Netflix and when we catch up with the Villanueva sisters, they have spent a year and a half in Argentina. Both sisters have changed Carolina owns another ship and Eva is hiding a mission that she will carry out with Fabio, a Brazillian spy. The two sisters come together on the Barbara de Braganza on a trip that will take them from Buenos Aires to Veracruz as Eva and Fabio try to stop a scientist traveling aboard the ship with a powerful lethal weapon. With a new plot of mystery and espionage, our heroes' lives will be at risk again as new characters are thrown into the mix.
Read on to know which of your favorite characters are returning and who is coming aboard the Barbara de Braganza for the first time in Season 3.
You may best know Ivana Baquero as one of the stars of MTV's 'The Shannara Chronicles', or from Guillermo del Toro's 'Pan's Labyrinth'. The Spanish actress is a formidable star who undoubtedly is still yet to conquer more. In 'High Seas', Baquero plays Eva Villanueva, the bolder and more inquisitive of the sisters. We follow Eva over the first two seasons solving mysteries and falling in love. Fans can expect more of the same in the upcoming season.
For American viewers, this may be a new face, but Alejandra Onieva is one of the most popular actresses in Spain. Known for her roles in 'El Secreto de Puente Viejo' and 'Hazing', Onieva is sure to capture the attention of viewers through her role in 'High Seas'. In the Netflix series, she plays Carolina, who may start out as the more timid sister, but learns to be more self-assured and independent over the course of two seasons.
Jon Kortajarena's cheekbones could cut through your soul but don't let that distract you from his acting abilities. Kortajarena started out as a model for Versace, Giorgio Armani and more and went on to act in hits such as 'A Single Man' and 'Skins'. In 'High Seas', he plays the suave, good-hearted Nicolas Vasquez, who helps Eva with her investigations and slowly falls in love with her. While they presumably go their separate ways after Nicolas meets his wife in Argentina (whom he thought was dead), we hope these two lovebirds find their way to each other.
Unfortunately, Eva and Nicolas's romance may face a hurdle in the form of a new character, Fabio, played by Marco Pigossi. Pigossi is a Brazilian actor best known for his work on 'Edge of Desire', 'Land of the Strong' and Netflix's 'Tidelands'. Fabio is Eva's new investigation-friendly partner, and from the trailer, we see some sparks flying.
'High Seas' Season 3 will be available to stream on Netflix on August 7 at 12 am PST.
