An adaptation of the British series ‘Liar,’ ‘Lies and Deceit’ (originally titled ‘Mentiras’) is a Spanish thriller drama show created by Curro Novallas. It scopes the account of a potential case of rape and causes the audience to indulge in self-reflection through its realistic narrative. Set in Mallorca, the series revolves around the conflict between a literature teacher at a high school named Laura Munar and a notable surgeon Xavier Vera, when the former suspects that she was drugged and raped after a dinner with the latter. It is her word against his, and the viewers are left to wonder who is telling the truth.
Despite the fact that the original series received mixed reviews from fans and critics, it didn’t stop the makers of this show to take on the challenge. The opening installment of the Spanish show garnered much praise for its gripping storyline. It even reflects the brilliance and creativity with which it has been made. The show first released in April 2020 in Spain before premiering internationally on Netflix in March 2022. With many people enjoying the first season, it begs the question about the release of a potential second round. Well, if you wish to know about the same, we have got you covered!
Lies and Deceit Season 2 Release Date
‘Lies and Deceit’ season 1 released in its entirety on March 4, 2022, on Netflix. Ahead of its arrival on the streamer, the first season streamed in the home country (Spain) from April 19, 2020, to May 24, 2020, on Atresplayer Premium. The first season comprises six episodes that have a runtime between 45-51 minutes each.
When it comes to the second season, here is all that we know. As of now, there has not been an official statement made by any cast or crew member regarding the renewal or cancellation of this thriller show. However, when we consider the positive response that the series received from fans and critics, not to mention an unclear end without closure, we can come to the conclusion that the show is more likely to be renewed than canceled.
Moreover, the British drama that this series is a remake of ran for two seasons, which might also be the case for the Spanish thriller. Given that the show is now reaching a larger audience through the streaming giant means that there may be a higher demand from fans. So, if the thriller is renewed by the summer of 2022, it would be safe to expect ‘Lies and Deceit’ season 2 to release sometime in Q2 2024 on Netflix.
Lies and Deceit Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?
Even though the announcement for the second season is yet to be made, there is always room for speculation as to which actors might retain their characters and return for the potential new installment of the series. Ángela Cremonte plays Laura Munar, a high school English teacher who claims that she has been sexually abused.
On the other hand, there is Javier Rey who plays Xavier Vera, a well-known surgeon who is accused of rape. At the end of the first season, it is implied that Xavier is dead, but it may just be another plot of his to get away from the accusations. Therefore, Rey might reprise the role if there is a season 2. In addition, Miquel Fernández (Iván), Manuela Velasco (Catalina Munar), and Itziar Atienza (Daniela Bauzá) are also likely to make a return in the potential second season. If new characters are introduced, there is a possibility of seeing some fresh faces as well.
Lies and Deceit Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
In the first season, Laura is seen trying to prove that her accusations and claims are not lies or empty, while Xavier tries his best to prove his innocence. Throughout the season, they both look to prove themselves truthful and the other one deceitful. In the climactic season finale, the viewers are left with the mysterious or fake death of Xavier, leaving room for interpretations of all kinds.
If or when the second season gets released, it is expected to reveal the truth about the unexpected and supposed death of Xavier. Is he really dead or just faking it to get away from the consequences of his actions? If he is indeed dead, then viewers can expect to learn about the perpetrator responsible for his death. Moreover, we may learn the truth about what really transpired on the night that Laura and Xavier met up for dinner.
