We haven’t seen the last of Emilia Urquiza. Netflix has renewed “Ingobernable” for a second season, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The Spanish-language political drama centers on the fictional first lady, played Kate del Castillo.
In “Ingobernable’s” first episode, Emilia asks her husband, President Diego Nava, for a divorce. It’s not long before he’s dead and she’s on the lam, accused of murdering him. The series’ first season follows Emilia’s efforts to flee the government officials tracking her. While she rose to national attention as the President’s wife, Emilia proves that she’s totally badass in her own right. The character has been compared to a female Jason Bourne.
Just like the first season of “Ingobernable,” which debuted on Netflix March 24, the second season will feature 15 episodes. You’ll be able to stream the new season sometime next year.
“Ingobernable” is Netflix’s first Spanish-language original drama.
“I’m very happy that the second season of ‘Ingobernable’ has been confirmed, because there’s still a lot to tell and new characters to meet,” del Castillo said. The actress is probably best known in the U.S. for her roles in Patricia Riggen’s features “The 33” and “Under the Same Moon,” as well as her turns in “Jane the Virgin” and “Weeds.” A superstar in her native Mexico, del Castillo became a household name with her roles in telenovelas like “Muchachitas,” “Azul,” “La mentira,” and “La Reina del Sur.”
