Upon its release in May 2020, ‘Valeria’ opened to positive reviews from the critics as well as audiences. The romantic dramedy revolves around the life of a thirty-something writer, Valeria, who is going through an existential crisis and is stuck between an unhappy marriage and a writer’s block. The show focuses on the adventures in the life of Val and her three best friends – Lola, Carmen, and Nerea, as they embark upon a journey to self-discovery. It is based on the best-selling ‘Valeria’ series by Spanish author Elisabet Benavent’s AKA Betacoqueta.
The female-driven series received acclaim for its relatable characters, light-hearted tone, vibrant costumes, and its accurate representation of the fast-paced modern life. Many also likened it to the hit romantic comedy series ‘Sex and the City.’ After binge-watching the first season, fans are wondering about the release date of ‘Valeria’ season 2? Let’s find out!
Valeria Season 2 Release Date
‘Valeria’ season 1 dropped on Netflix on May 8, 2020. It consists of 8 episodes with a runtime of 40-45 minutes each.
Netflix is yet to confirm anything about the second season. However, as the novel series on which the show is based comprises five books, there is enough source material for the makers to extend it beyond the first season. Also, the popularity might not be an issue since the show has garnered high ratings among the viewers. If everything works out and the network decides to renew the show for a second season, ‘Valeria’ season 2 might release sometime in 2021 or later, on Netflix.
