The Five Juanas Season 2 - Current Updates on Release Date, Cast, and Plot in 2022

If you like soapy telenovelas, you’ll probably be binge-watching “The Five Juanas” on Netflix this week after it premiered on October 6. The 18-episode series features all of the melodrama and kitsch that the genre is known for, including stylized aesthetics, romantic turmoil, sensual sex scenes, and a mystery thriller vibe. The drama was based on a 1997 Colombian telenovela authored by Bernardo Romero Pereiro and was originally titled “La Venganza de las Juanas.”

In its story about five ladies who are all in the same hotel at the same time, all have the same name, and all have the same birthmark, the show focuses on the concept of fate. Clearly, their pasts are intertwined, and as they learn more about what that implies, they find themselves in the crosshairs of a politician who sees the new information as a danger. Allow all the butt shots and surprising twists to transform this into a tawdry, guilty pleasure of epic proportions.

If you’re a fan of “The Five Juanas,” you may be wondering when you’ll be able to see it again. Is a second season planned for Netflix? So far, we’ve learned the following.

When will The Five Juanas Season 2 be available?

Even “Bridgerton,” Netflix’s largest show to date (via CNet), didn’t get a renewal until more than three weeks after it premiered on December 25, 2020. While Season 2 of the K-drama “The Squid Game” has been discussed (via Vulture), the show has yet to be officially renewed three weeks after its September 17 premiere.

Netflix’s decision-making process for keeping and dropping series is notoriously opaque.

Netflix has disclosed information on how it makes these decisions over the years – according to Wired, it measures viewership vs the cost of renewing, specifically how many people watch a full season in the first seven and first 28 days.

So we won’t know for a while whether “The Five Juanas” will be revived or not. Telenovelas are notorious for their short production turnarounds and for airing relatively close to the end of filming (via Variety), but it’s unclear whether this will be the case with the Netflix-branded series, which doesn’t have the same fast-paced scheduling problems. So, even if Season 2 is given the green light, we won’t know how long it will take.

Season 2 of The Five Juanas cast members have been revealed.

Zuria Vega, Juanita Arias, Sofia Engberg, Oka Giner, and Renata Notni play the five Juanas, each of whom is significantly distinct. One is a stripper, one is a singer, one is a clairvoyant, one is a nun, and one is a journalist, so you can picture the tensions within this oddball crew. Since they’re all listed in the show’s title — along with their love interests, relatives, and other supporting characters — a second season should presumably bring them all back for another conspiracy-laden drama.

Simón Marroqun was played by Carlos Ponce in Season 1, however, he is unlikely to return based on the events of the show. Meanwhile, because the first season hinted at the existence of a sixth Juana, a second season would almost certainly introduce additional characters to the mix, resulting in even more bizarre drama, which is exactly what you’d expect from a telenovela.

Ricky Del Real (Daniel), Fernando Becerril (Rogelio), Jorge Antonio Guerrero (Lorenzo), Iván Amozurrutia (Federico), Pablo Astiazarán (Camilo), and Verónica Merchant (Susana) are among the Season 1 cast members who may return.

What happens in season two of The Five Juanas?

“The Five Juanas” had a satisfying conclusion in the first season, with the five women celebrating with their loved ones. Still, the last scene, which revealed the presence of a second Juana with the fish-shaped birthmark, portends a fascinating sequel. It’s possible that things will get out of hand, especially if the Juanas find more than one. Other aspects of the narrative that have been left unresolved, such as Federico and Juana Valentino’s recently discovered familial ties, could be explored further.

Of course, a telenovela series will always aim for maximum sensationalism, even if it might be a little predictable at times, so any predictions for the following set of episodes should be as wild as possible. Regrettably, without knowing whether or if a second season is in the works, all of this conjecture may be futile. Fans will have to wait a little longer to see if “The Five Juanas” would be successful in real life.
