Amazon Prime Video continues to grow as one of the most powerful platforms in the market. Although it has gone through some major ups and downs, as is the case with The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Jeff Bezos’ platform wants to continue releasing top-tier series and movies, and Citadel is just the tip of the iceberg of what’s to come.

Internationally, Prime is gaining more weight than ever, so it has just announced its future novelties for the platform in Spain. Among other novelties, we will discover the adaptation of the novel series Reina Roja, by Juan Gómez-Jurado, the new series by Malviviendo creator David Sainz or the most anticipated of all: the new stage of Operación Triunfo after leaving Televisión Española.

All the latest news from Prime Video Spain

Through a Twitter thread, Prime Video Spain has announced which will be the next new releases to arrive to its national catalog. There are no concrete dates for most of them yet, but they have made it clear that they are for 2023, so we could see them sooner than expected.

Red Queen

Juan Gómez-Jurado is the most popular writer in Spain in recent years, and thanks to the Red Queen saga -which integrates Red Queen, The Black She-Wolf and White King- has managed to be the best seller in 2019, 2020 and 2022. Now, his novels will be adapted in series format by Amazon Prime Video.

Starring Vicky Luengo as Antonia Scott and Hovik Keuchkerian as Jon Gutiérrez, the series has already been shot by a crew led by Koldo Serra and is in post-production. According to Prime Video, “it is turning out I-N-C-R-R-E-Í-B-L-E! Its synopsis is as follows:

With an IQ of 242, Antonia Scott is officially the smartest person on Earth. Her intelligence earned her the “Red Queen” of a secret, experimental police project, but what seemed like a gift became a curse, and she ended up losing everything.

When the son of a powerful tycoon is found grotesquely murdered in his mansion, and the daughter of the richest man in Spain is kidnapped, the Red Queen organization is set in motion. Mentor, Antonia’s former boss, turns to Jon Gutierrez, a hot-tempered Basque cop about to be expelled from the force, to reactivate Antonia. The twisted cat-and-mouse game in which Jon and Antonia become embroiled during their investigation will also help them discover that they admire and complement each other almost as much as they irritate each other.

The Farads

Another of Amazon Prime Video‘s big bets for this year is Los Farad, a series that was announced last year and stars Susana Abaitua, Miguel Herrán and Amparo Piñero. Mariano Barroso, director and co-creator of the series, has confirmed that they have already shot it, and the synopsis couldn’t be more striking.

The series will introduce the audience to the Marbella of the 80’s through Oskar, a boy who dreams of setting up a gym and who, with the help of Sara Farad, ends up entering the fascinating world of the Costa del Sol, its jet set, its eccentricities and its geopolitics. This new world opens up to him thanks to the Farads, a family that offers him a future, but with the most unexpected of trades: arms trafficking.

Romancero

Another very interesting series that will arrive sometime this year is Romancero, a horror fiction produced by Mediapro and starring Ricardo Gómez (La Ruta, Cuéntame) and Belén Cuesta (Money Heist, Paquita Salas). According to Prime “it’s crazy”. And so is its plot.

Cornelia (Matic) is a girl whose childhood has been stolen. Jordán (Cócola) is not a boy, nor is he a man. They are two helpless young men escaping from the forces of the law, from powerful supernatural creatures and from themselves. Romancero is the story of this escape, of the persecuted and the persecutors, set in a desert and cruel Andalusia, as real as it is mythical, during a nightmare night plagued by demons, witches and blood drinkers.

En fin

David Sainz rose to fame in the early 2000s for being the director of Malviviendo, the first great Spanish webseries that made its mark among the general public. Together with him, Enrique Lojo has worked in Mambo, and now both are developing En fin, a new series of which we only know its premise: “what would you do if the world was going to end… what if in the end it doesn’t end but you’ve already messed it up?

Hildegart

Paula Ortiz, a renowned Spanish director who has directed films such as La novia and Al otro lado del río y entre los árboles, is taking the helm of Hildegart, a psychological thriller based on the true story of Hildegart Rodríguez Carballeira, a Spanish feminist icon who died of patricide when she was just 18 years old. We don’t have more information yet, but the story seems to be as dramatic as it is gripping.

Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End

Beyond David Sainz’s series about the end of the world, we have another apocalypse with this series that adapts Manel Loureiro’s book about a zombie catastrophe in Pontevedra. Directed by Carles Torrens (Emergo), Prime has already given us a reason to watch it: Lúculo the cat.

Un hipster en la España vacía

One of the most repeated themes in current Spanish fiction is the phenomenon of empty Spain, hundreds and hundreds of kilometers full of municipalities where very few people live and where there is no prosperity. This is the subject of Prime’s upcoming comedy in which Quique (Lalo Tenorio) ends up governing a small town together with Lourdes (Berta Vázquez). Based on the book by Daniel Gascón.

El circo de los muchachos

A Prime Video novelty that will delight the most morbid is El circo de los muchachos, a docuseries that will tell the story of Jesús Silva, a priest who founded a utopian city founded by young people. They even formed a circus and performed at Madison Square Garden. A story as rare as it is real and unknown.

Takeshi’s castle

Yellow Humor was an unprecedented cultural phenomenon in Spain in the 90s. Now, it is back with a cleaner image -no offense to Asians, a detail- but with all the fun. Oh, and with Dani Rovira, Eva Soriano and Jorge Ponce. Let’s see what comes out of it.

Operación Triunfo

Finally, Amazon Prime Video has officially announced what many were already rumoring: the realization of a new Operación Triunfo. We still do not know more details about it, but it is clear that the platform wants to snatch the jewel that Televisión Española has let go so easily.
