'Cable Girls' aka 'Las chicas del cable season 4: Fans hoping Netflix renews hit show to ensure four friends have liberating showdown
Many of them have expressed on Twitter that season four was a complete letdown and the makers just made something of it as they wanted it to be the final one
'Cable Girls' or 'Las Chicas del Cable' has had a great run for four seasons on Netflix. The Spanish series set in the 1920s revolves around four women fighting for their right to liberation and freedom in a male-dominated society. While the series tackled the issue, it failed to give the four friends closure with their struggle in season four's ending.
While it was said that season four will be the final one, speculations are rife among fans that there will be a season five. Many of them have expressed on Twitter that season four was a complete letdown and the makers just made something of it as they wanted it to be the final one.
Season four didn't live up to the mark fans expected and many have demanded a season five to compensate for the ending in season four. One fan tweeted; "Cable Girls ended on such a note that makes me NEED season 5 ASAP. #CableGirls".
Moreover, the death of Ángeles was uncalled for, according to fans who felt her demise made no sense as she was not at fault for murdering her husband in self-defense. She attempted to break out of prison and was shot dead in a totally unfortunate event that didn't sit well with ardent fans of the drama series. A fan tweeted "How can Angeles die, I’m in tears rn omg #cablegirls"
The other factors that left fans with an "unhappy ending" to 'Cable Girls' were the reduced amount of sex and romance on the show. Many felt that the hallmark of these kinds of shows is the sexual angle. A fan on Reddit, in fact, said: "Was everyone having low libido from the water?"
The other issue that disappointed fans in the ending of 'Cable Girls' was the relationship between Lidia and Carlos. They didn't expect her to choose Francisco over Carlos since fans loved them as a couple. The two were often referred to as "couple goals" and almost everyone looked forward to them ending up together as a couple after everything that they have gone through.
Another tweet from a fan had this grievance: "Lately I have been obsessed with cable girls!! if they make a season 4 or whatever tf their last season would be and Carlos and Lidia aren't endgame. I'm gonna have to sh*t on that one."
It has been reported by Spanish outlets that there will be a season five, and the show's IMDb page has season five listed. However, it's unclear whether Netflix has officially renewed the show. Here's keeping our fingers crossed and hoping for the best.
