After the great success obtained in 2021, acapulco is back with its second season. The production of AppleTV It conquered critics and viewers with its episodes broadcast last year, so it was only a matter of time before the production of the new season was approved. The new chapters will allow us to know more adventures in the enigmatic hotel “The hills”. Likewise, we will learn more about the story of the young Máximo (Enrique Arrizon), who is still on a clear rise to become the successful man he has wanted so much.
At a time when many productions bet on violence, serial killers and sexual content not suitable for everyone, the second season of acapulco It comes as an opportunity to unite families in front of television. Thanks to the setting and the design of the characters, more than one will be able to identify with the entanglements of Máximo, Memo (Fernando Carsa), Don Pablo (Damián Alcázar), Nora (Vanessa Bauche) or Diane (Jessica Collins).
In an interview for Cinema PREMIEREVanessa Bauche expressed her excitement at being part of a production that highlights family values and offers a respite compared to everything we currently see:
“Acapulco is a series that deals with humanism, generosity and nobility. The characters listen to each other and try to be better. In these times of psychopathocracy we have normalized a great deal of heinous violence. But acapulco raises, in a very light and endearing way, issues of mental and emotional health. We are talking about social and family rejection, which is why it is important that you watch this series as a family. You will fall in love with the characters, but also with yourselves.”
And it is precisely this deepening of family themes that elevates Acapulco above other current series. From the last chapters of the first season we know a little more about Sara (Regina Reynoso), Máximo’s younger sister and Nora’s daughter. The young woman is beginning a process of self-discovery and she realizes that her idea of her love is not in men, but in women. If we add to this that the series is located in the 80’s, we have an important setting for the discussion of the subject.
“At the end of the day, family will always be there. That is one of the things that rescues the series. Parents must be close to their children. Don’t be afraid to approach them. It is not only about accepting them, but about helping them to be better”, commented Regina Reynoso.
But acapulco It goes beyond family relationships. The second season allows us to know other fundamental aspects, such as the inseparable friendship that can arise between two men. And it is that in times like the present, where technology has ironically distanced us from the closest people, it would seem impossible to have a friendship like the one between the characters of Máximo and Memo.
Its interpreters, Enrique Arrizon and Fernando Carsa, shared with us how such great chemistry develops on screen, and if it has been transferred to real life.
“Just as our friendship has grown on the show, it has also grown in real life,” Arrizon said. “Both characters share the same dream, we are here to help each other, just like in real relationships. We feel very free to show affection to each other.”
“In his time, a friendship between two men and being affectionate with your friends would have been very rare. This brotherhood today is more common. We dare to show our emotions. Enrique and I have great chemistry on screen because we are brothers and friends off camera,” added Carsa.
“Dream bigger” mentions the catchphrase of the second season of acapulco. And boy, the new chapters are full of dreams. Between unexpected guests, entanglements that will start more than one laugh, and current themes, AppleTV delivers a product that has everything to repeat or exceed the success of its predecessor. Will we see more adventures in “The Hills”? Only time will tell.
The first episodes of acapulcoseason 2, are now available on Apple TV Plus.
