‘Perfect Life’ (originally known as ‘Vida perfecta’) is a Spanish drama that follows a group of millennials, Maria, Cristina, and Esther, as they navigate their lives through a series of trials and errors. Things often don’t go as planned, and they occasionally become subjects of disappointment and humiliation. But they gradually learn how to subvert emotional tides and fight battles that nobody prepared them for. The series also celebrates these three young women as they discover and learn new lessons at every step of their journey.
Upon its premiere in Spain, ‘Perfect Life’ was lauded by the critics and audiences. It even received the Best Series title at the Canneseries Festival, including other nominations. Considering its success right after the first season dropped, the show was bound to get renewed. Curious to know more about ‘Perfect Life’ season 2? Here’s everything you need to know.
Perfect Life Season 2 Release Date
‘Perfect Life’ season 1 released in its entirety on January 21, 2020, on HBO Max. It consists of eight episodes with a run time of 30 minutes each. Prior to its release in the US, the show premiered on October 18, 2019, on Movistar Plus, a streaming service operational in Spain. Since it garnered rave reviews in the home country, HBO Max picked up the US streaming rights for the show.
On December 17, 2019, the series was renewed for a second season. Movistar Plus and HBO Max have joined forces for the coming episodes, which wrapped up filming under restrictive measures imposed by the pandemic.
