It’s been almost two years since the explosive first season of Luis Miguel: the series gave the audience the officially licensed story of the Mexican superstar. With Diego Boneta in the lead, the 13-episode season gave a candid behind-the-scenes look at LuisMi’s early years. Dealing with everything from his big break up to the spookiest cheating stories of his domineering father Luis “Luisito” Rey (Óscar Jaenada), the drama was a compelling fictional version of these. Behind the music specials that showed the most unpleasant aspects of a musical artist’s biography. It’s not for nothing that the show’s narrative engine focused on the mysterious disappearance of Luis Miguel’s mother. Considering that the last episode of the first season didn’t take us until 1992, when Luisito passed away, presumably taking to the grave the top secret LuisMi had long sought to uncover, we all knew there was a lot more to it. ‘stories to tell. And now, in a video ad that reminds us that the second season of the show is coming in 2020, we got to see what that could look like.
The short clip takes place in a recording studio, shot in close-ups to better admire the singing superstar. We see Boneta, her tousled hair, as a dashing singer in ultra-90s outfit (aka a white t-shirt and a leather vest). He’s recording the hit “Como es posible que a mi lado”, the kind of pop song that has endeared him to many unconscious fans. But he is not satisfied. After taking a sip from a glass, he wants to do it all over again, causing the camera to pan downward which makes us blink forward. Gone is the young pop star and his place is an older, more polished LuisMi, his hair slicked back donning a perfectly tucked shirt. His young sound too. It records the must-have mariachi “México en la piel”, which the artist recorded in 2004, suggesting that we could have an entire decade of Luis Miguel’s story in this next chapter of the biopic drama. Now excuse us as we start counting the days until we can see Boneta tackle Romances-LuisMi period.
The second season of Luis Miguel is coming to Netflix in 2020.
