So, Valeria Season 2 is proving to be something of a surprise hit on Netflix, and what does this mean for Season 3? Will Netflix greenlight Valeria Season 3? Is Netflix working on it already? If so, when could it be released? Who could star in Valeria Season 3, and what could the plot be?
These are all questions I am going to try and answer in this article, but I can tell you now, it won’t be easy. Also, some of the answers – or lack thereof – might frustrate you.
Is Valeria Season 3 happening?
Before we get into the weeds of this story, what’s Valeria on Netflix all about? Here’s the show’s official plot synopsis (courtesy of Netflix):
Valeria is a writer in crisis, both with her novels and her husband. Thankfully, her three best friends, Carmen, Lola, and Nerea, support her through her adventures, whilst having ones of their own. Valeria and her friends are immersed in a whirlwind of emotions about love, friendship, jealousy, unfaithfulness, doubts, heartbreak, secrets, work, worries, joy and dreams of the future.
Right, onto the first question: is Valeria Season 3 happening on Netflix? Well, it was revealed not too long ago that Valeria Season 3 is happening over at Netflix.
The third season of the series Valeria was announced by Netflix in October 2021. So, Netflix has renewed the series Valeria for a third season. This means that the show will be released sooner rather than later on the streaming platform.
Now, back to what the show is all about. The series is kind of like Netflix’s Spanish-language take on Sex And The City – only with more realistic and, dare I say it, interesting characters. It’s already proven to be hugely popular on Netflix.
The second season is one of Netflix’s most-watched original shows worldwide. This would make me believe that the streamer is already working on Season 3. This, added with the news that Netflix is planning on putting more emphasis on their content not in the English language suggests that Valeria Season 3 is almost a dead certainty at this point.
When could Valeria Season 3 be released on Netflix?
So, with this in mind, when could Valeria Season 3 be released on the streaming platform? Well, this isn’t an easy question to answer. I am pretty sure that they have already written scripts for Season 3 and are preparing to start shooting the season.
Actually, we have some news on that front. It does seem as though they’ve been shooting the third season of Valeria throughout the summer. One of the show’s main stars, Diana Gomez (who plays the titular character in the show) revealed eight weeks ago that they’ve started shooting the third season of the show already.
Here’s what she had to say on the matter (translated from Spanish):
We’ve started shooting the third of #Valerianetflix and this photo describes my emotional state.
As for when the season could be released, well, previous seasons of this show were made pretty quickly, even with the COVID pandemic. Season 1 was made before the pandemic, yet Season 2 was made during, and they made it very quickly.
So, my best guess is that Valeria Season 3 could be released as early as next year. A 2022 release date makes sense to me, and I’m pretty confident that we’ll see Season 3 land on Netflix sometime in June or July 2022.
Valeria Season 3’s cast?
So, with that question answered to the best of my ability, what about Season 3’s cast. Well, it’ll be pretty much the same as Season 2. Diana Gómez will definitely return as Valeria. She’ll be joined by Silma López as Lola, Paula Malia as Carmen, Teresa Riott as Nerea and Maxi Iglesias as Víctor.
Now, it’s not so certain whether Valeria Season 3 will feature Ibrahim Al Shami as Adrián given how Season 2 ended. Also, I’m not so sure whether Juanlu González will return in Season 3 as Borja.
What could the story be?
Judging by how Season 2 ended, I’m pretty sure that Season 3 will see Valeria still struggling to get her love life in order. She ended up signing the diverse papers, and then Adrián bid farewell to his now ex-wife. It won’t be easy for her, but it will sure be interesting for us viewers to watch!
There’s going to be a lot of exciting stuff to watch in this third season of this hit Spanish series. I cannot wait to see how it all ends up unfolding when it’s finally released. It should be released at some point this year given the fact that they’ve been filming it already, and I don’t think it takes too long to edit the series in post-production.
