Almost two months after its global premiere, Netflix announced this week that it has renewed its Brazilian original series, Coisa Mais Linda, for a second season.
The new instalment, they said, will have six new episodes (one less than the first one), which will be shot in the second half of 2019 in Rio de Janeiro and San Pablo, with production by Prodigo Films.
It will once again star Maria Casadevall, Pathy Dejesus, Fernanda Vasconcellos, Mel Lisboa, Leandro Lima, Ícaro Silva and Gustavo Machado.
Caito Ortiz remains in his role as general director and Beto Gauss and Francesco Civita are executive producers.
The scripts will be developed once again by Heather Roth and Giuliano Cedroni.
The renewal for Coisa Mais Linda comes a few days after the premiere of the second season of O Mecanismo, also from Brazil, and the announcement that Brazilian sci-fi series, 3%, will return with a third season on June 7.
Coisa Mais Linda follows Maria Luiza, a conservative woman from San Pablo in the 60s, who always relied on her father, Ademar, and her husband, Pedro.
When her husband goes missing without a trace, Maria Luiza travels to Rio de Janeiro to run the restaurant that he was going to open. There, her life takes a turn as she comes into contact with progressive and feminist ideas, transforming the venue into a night club devoted to Bossa Nova.
In addition to the three series mentioned, Netflix is preparing a long list of titles in Brazil, including Super Drags, Ninguém tá olhando, Cidades invisíveis, Irmandade, O escolhido, Spectros and Onisciente.
