Unquestionably, a year after its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, 30 Coins (30 Monedas Temporada 2) remains one of the most daring Spanish television films in recent memory. We’ll never forget lex de la Iglesia’s Spanish-made horror operetta, despite its unbalanced collection of lights and shadows.
With rumors of a second season of ’30 coins’ ringing louder and louder — albeit still in the air — we’ve gathered all we know about it.
30 Coins Season 2: The History
At the recent Sitges Festival, we chatted with lex de la Iglesia and Jorge Guerricaechevarra and learned that the filmmaker had always intended to do a trilogy. Specifically, he said, “before we started writing, we already had that type of altarpiece in our thoughts, that kind of horrific triptych, and we are at it.”
Knowing this, and considering how the first season was shelved, with Eduard Fernández’s father Vergara and Manolo Solo’s perfidious Santoro very dead after falling into the void – and this is seen on camera, so there is no doubt that their fate—, it is likely that the second part of ’30 coins’ will focus on the majority of survivors, except for last minute resurrections or visits to the past.
Merche and Lagrange fled Pedraza with one of the show’s coins after eight episodes, thus Paco and Elena, who would be on the other side of the coin, would be a natural match for the two characters..
The part of Angelo, the character played by Cosmio Fusco, who went for a walk in New York after altering his appearance and taking on the shape of an Asian guy, is more difficult to foretell.. According to what we’ve seen so far, foreign dyes will continue to play a role in the story.
30 Coins Season 2: The Team
After the director and screenwriter duo, we’re left with a host of unanswered questions. In the event of a second season, the only certainty is that lex de la Iglesia and Jorge Guerricaechevarra will once again be in charge of the project, with whom they have worked with for years.
But when it comes to the technical/creative category, Pablo Rosso, a cameraman who understands exactly how to dress a horror movie or series, is leading the way with the most votes. He just concluded his latest project with the church, “Veneciafrenia,” which will be shown at the Sitges Festival in 2021.
30 Coins Season 2: The Cast
There should be no end to the conjecture! Eduard Fernández and Manolo Solo are effectively out of the picture, as we noted in the section on history, and will only be able to return in a flashback or by a miracle now that Santoro and Vergara have passed away.
Megan Montaner, Miguel ngel Silvestre, Macarena Gómez, and Francisco Reyes are all anticipated, although it’s unclear if Angelo will reappear as Cosmio Fusco. Pepón Nieto as Sergeant Laguna, Javier Bódalo as Antonio, and several recurrent secondary characters that escaped the escabeche in Pedraza, would not be ridiculous to bring back to the show.
30 Coins Season 2: The Filming
At the beginning of September, there were reports that the shooting of 30 coins would begin in October. However, things may be more up in the air than they appear at the moment. HBO has declined to comment on the matter, as have we. According to a recent tweet from the show’s director, lex de la Iglesia and Jorge Guerricaechevarra have finished the new season’s scripts.
30 Coins Season 2: The Release Date
Without knowing the progress of pre-production, it is hard to estimate a release date for the film. We won’t have to return to Pedraza until the fourth quarter of 2022 if we begin filming before the end of the year.
