Netflix has officially renewed the Spanish-language series, ‘The Marked Heart’ for a second season after it became a global hit just days after its premiere on Netflix.
The first season of the Colombian series was released on April 20 on Netflix, worldwide. The story of Camila Duarte, Zacarías Cienfuegos, and Simón Duque will continue to get viewers' hearts racing in the upcoming season, which is likely to release in 2023.
This action-thriller series, starring Ana Lucía Domínguez, Michel Brown, and Sebastián Martinez, which has been #1 in the Top 10 non-English language TV titles on Netflix in over 68 countries, comes from Venezuelan writer Leonardo Padrón, who, in addition to being a screenwriter and executive producer of The Marked Heart, recently signed an exclusive three-year creative deal with Netflix for the development of new series and movies.
"I am delighted and honored by the responsibility that Netflix has given me, to continue telling the stories that capture the attention of the audience," commented Leonardo Padrón regarding this deal. "The Marked Heart proves once again that productions made in Latin America could have worldwide appeal. These are projects that are unique but at the same time also global, involving a wide range of local talent both in front and behind the camera. They are stories that fascinatingly depict the world."
Midgard Times also reviewed ‘The Marked Heart’ calling it a series that has several story twists and also deals with the illegal trafficking of internal organs, making it interesting to watch.
Originally titled Pálpito, the series follows Simón, who plunges into the dangerous world of organ trafficking after his wife was killed by organ traffickers. Simón's wife is murdered so that her heart can be removed and transplanted into Camila, a wealthy man's wife. Simon enters the deadly world of organ trafficking in search of vengeance. In his desperate pursuit, he will fall in love with Camila, the woman who has survived thanks to his murdered wife's heart. The climax comes when they both discover the truth.
“Working with a creator of Padrón's professional standing provides us with the opportunity to create profound, dizzying, innovative, and impactful stories. We are very excited to continue bringing our Latin American content to the world as we are with The Marked Heart,” said Roberto Stopello, VP of Series in Latin America at Netflix.
