Fans of Mexican singer Luis Miguel had to wait a little longer than they expected for the second season of the Netflix biographical series Luis Miguel: the series, but now that the first official trailer was released online on Monday, March 22, the show’s April premiere date seems much closer.
Before you jump into the second season, be sure to dabble in the first 13 episodes of the first season, which premiered in 2018. Three years and a pandemic later, Mexican singer and actor Diego Boneta (Rock of ages) is back as the main character, who spent the show’s first season fighting his way through fame, issues with his family, and protecting his privacy.
The second season of Luis Miguel will be featured in two timelines and show the turbulence the musician has had to overcome in his professional and personal life – “betrayals, secrets, reunions, challenges and sorrows.”
In the trailer, Luis de Boneta entertains thousands of fans in crowded arenas and is invited to travel to New York City to meet Frank Sinatra (Julian Sedgwick). “I understand that you are quite the crooner,” he said to Luis. El Sol de México responds timidly: “I’m trying”.
In one scene, viewers see Luis drop to his knees on stage and catch his ears, possibly due to tinnitus he has suffered since he was a child. In a 2015 interview with Argentina the universalLuis said of his ear problems: “Sometimes life challenges you and you have to overcome these difficulties.”
Later in the trailer, Luis has to confront his estranged daughter Michelle (Macarena Achaga) and grandmother Matilde (Lola Casamayor) who threatens to bring Luis Sergio’s younger brother back to Madrid.
The eight episodes that make up the new season are sure to be filled with as much drama (and music) as the first.
Season 2 of Luis Miguel: the series Premieres on Netflix April 18 at 8 p.m. EST. New episodes air every Sunday.
