Feria recently dropped on Netflix and ever since, there is a growing demand for another season. On Jan. 28 Netflix will drop its next big Spanish drama series, “Feria: The Darkest Light,” a new ‘90s-set fantastic thriller from “Elíte” co-creator Carlos Montero and thriller expert Agustín Martínez (“La caza: Monteperdido”).
Well, after the massive popularity that the show managed to gather, we can totally relate to the “demand.” The Spanish thriller gets on your nerve and you can’t stop yourself from binge-watching all the episodes at once.
The series is wholesome with a spice of horror, thriller, drama, mystery, fantasy, and crime. What did we miss?
The series is centered around the human and natural force and more generically, supernatural forces. Feria is a teen drama that quickly converts to supernatural horror. The plot is strong and intriguing at the same time, therefore, what is best to conclude?
Should we hope for a potential season 2? Umm, let’s see what we have got on the show this far.
Coming to the talk of the topic, there is no official announcement of Season 2 yet. However, there is a chance of Feria Season 2 happening. The show just released its first season and right now, the numbers of viewership are being scrutinized.
Once that is done, Netflix might or might not consider it eligible for another season. Therefore, it all depends on the viewership stats. Spanish series and their popularity are unquestionable. So, fingers crossed on what is about to happen with Feria.
If there is a Season 2 of the show, we are expecting it to be out somewhere in early to mid-2023.
Future of Feria – Cast, Plot…
It is going to be too soon to convey all that information. However, from where Season 1 ended, we can conclude the possibilities and potential of Season 2.
Produced by Filmax, one of Spain’s leading production, distribution and sales outfits, the show is a clear demonstration of Netflix’s ever-increasing ingratiation into the local industry and the company’s desire to work with the best local talent. Award-winning Spanish directors Jorge Dorado (“Anna”) and Carles Torrens (“Sequence”) were recruited to head production, and the series stars an impressive cast of cinema talent and TV superstars including Marta Nieto, the lead in Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s Oscar-nominated short “Madre,” Patricia López, last year’s Spanish Academy Goya Award-winner for best actress (“Ane is Missing”), and Isak Férriz (“Below Zero”), among others.
Set in the Andalusian mountains in the mid ‘90s, the show is billed as a fantastic thriller and painted in clear shades of Lynch and Carpenter as it blurs the lines between reality and fantasy. There, young sisters Eva, played by Ana Tomeno (“La isla mínima”), and Sofía, by Carla Campra (“Señoras del (h)AMPA”), learn that their parents have committed an unthinkable mass murder before disappearing from the town, leaving 23 victims in their wake. However, not all is as it seems, and the girls embark on a journey of discovery, learning that the people of Feria are not as naïve as they appear.
Variety spoke with Montero and Martínez about working together on the genre-crossing series, their major visual and narrative influences and writing for a global platform.
Montero: That’s just it. The ambition was always there, but we didn’t have the resources with open-air TV that was focused on making broader series that everyone would watch. There was almost never an opportunity to make something that was pure genre. And now we’re at a point where pure genre projects don’t really exist , so we are working to adapt and blend genres which is something that Agustín and I love to do. It’s also key that we had the support of Netflix and the access to a budget and technology that let us make this series look as good as anything coming from Hollywood.
Martínez: I think there is a generational issue in Spain too. There is a reluctance in older generations to these kinds of stories that came from the U.S. Our parents weren’t raised on science fiction and fantasy, so they have no connection to the genre and in fact, to them it’s often very strange. I remember when Alejandro Amenábar’s “Tesis” came out, everyone here was saying you could never make a thriller like that in Spain. Well, that’s only true until someone does it!
