Netflix has established a name for itself in churning out some of the best foreign period dramas. ‘The Bonfire of Destiney‘, ‘Cable Girls‘, or ‘High Seas‘ — just name it; the list is never-ending. Another addition to this catalog is ‘The Queen and the Conqueror’ aka ‘La Reina de Indias y el Conquistador’, a historical series, inspired by true events. This Spanish-language show is created by Johhny Ortiz and directed by Camilo Villamizar and Juan Carlos Vásquez. It tells the fascinating story of the events that led to the birth of Colombia’s major port, Cartagena de Indias.
The Queen And The Conqueror Season 2 Release Date:
‘The Queen and the Conqueror’ season 1 premiered on May 20, 2020, on Netflix.
Well, as far as its second season goes, let’s begin by telling you that ‘The Queen and the Conqueror’ is not your typical historical mini-series. It is, in fact, a long telenovela comprising a whopping 60 episodes! And all of the episodes landed on the same date on the platform. Hence, it neatly wraps up the tale in its first-season run. So, chances of a renewal are slim. However, if Netflix receives extremely good ratings and in a rare scenario, wants to continue the story further, we can expect ‘The Queen and the Conqueror’ season 2 to release sometime in 2022.
