Originally titled ‘Entrevías,’ ‘Wrong Side of the Tracks’ is a crime series inspired by ‘La que se avecina,’ a Spanish sitcom. The show centers around the complex relationship of ex-army captain Tirso Abantos and his granddaughter Irene, who gets involved with the local drug dealer Sandro. Set in the titular neighborhood of Entrevías, the Spanish series progresses through the threats Tirso, Irene, and their acquaintances face when the former soldier sets out to annihilate Sandro’s kingdom. Created by David Bermejo, the show originally released in Spain in February 2022 and then on Netflix in May 2022.
The engrossing action series garnered positive reviews from critics and audiences alike, especially for the incredible performances of the main cast, the enthralling narrative, and the social commentary. The show also recorded a highly impressive viewership in Spain. Since the first season ends with ample scope for the narrative to continue, viewers must be curious about the prospects of a second installment. Well, here’s everything you need to know about the same!
Wrong Side of the Tracks Season 2 Release Date
‘Wrong Side of the Tracks’ season 1 released in its entirety on May 20, 2022, on Netflix. Prior to its release on the streaming giant, season 1 premiered in Spain on February 1, 2022, on Telecinco and concluded its run on March 22, 2022. The first season comprises eight episodes with a runtime of 69-80 minutes each.
As far as the second season is concerned, we have exciting news. ‘Wrong Side of the Tracks’ season 2 already finished airing in its home country from March 29, 2022, to May 17, 2022. This indicates that it might soon arrive on the streamer as well. Even though Netflix usually likes to keep a gap of about a year between two seasons, there have been instances where new installments arrived shortly after the premiere of the latest edition. A case in point being ‘He-Man and the Masters of the Universe,’ where the sophomore iteration of the show landed on the streamer after a gap of less than six months.
So, since season 1 of the Spanish drama reached Netflix subscribers almost two months after it concluded its run on the original network, we can respect the same from season 2 as well. In that case, since the second installment finished airing on Telecinco in May 2022, it may land on Netflix in July 2022. With that being said, we can expect ‘Wrong Side of the Tracks’ season 2 to release sometime in Q3 2022 on Netflix.
Wrong Side of the Tracks Season 2 Cast: Who is in it?
Most of the principal cast members of season 1 will be seen again in season 2, including José Coronado (Tirso Abantos), Nona Sobo (Irene), Felipe Londoño (Nelson), Laura Ramos (Gladys), Manolo Caro (Sanchís), Manuel Tallafé (Pepe), and Itziar Atienza (Amanda). María de Nati (Nata), Miguel Ángel Jiménez (Santi), Luis Zahera (Ezequiel), and Maria Molins (Jimena) also feature in the second season.
Although Franky Martín’s character Sandro dies in season 1, the actor continues to feature in the sophomore round, possibly in flashback scenes. Jordi Sánchez joined the cast of season 2 to portray Guillermo Salgado, a prominent real estate investor. In addition, Carmen Esteban (Alicia Solano) and Raúl Sanz (Diego) joined the mix in supporting roles for the second edition.
Wrong Side of the Tracks Season 2 Plot: What is it About?
The first season ends with Ezequiel and Amanda teaming up to find more about the mysterious “Phantom.” Amanda offers Ezequiel immunity from arrest if he rejoins Sandro’s gang as her spy. Sandro realizes that Ezequiel is a spy and attempts to kill him. However, Nelson and Nata team up and kill Sandro before he hurts the policeman. Santi frees Sandro’s henchman from the basement of Tirso’s hardware shop without knowing who he is, only for him to target Tirso. Gladys tries to save Tirso and gets stabbed in the process. An ambulance arrives to take her to the hospital. Irene arrives at Entrevías and reconnects with her grandfather.
The second season follows Tirso’s life after the departure of Irene to her home and Santi’s takeover of the hardware shop. An investor named Guillermo Salgado arrives in the neighborhood to purchase assets, whereas a series of rape incidents send shock waves through the community. Irene and Nelson’s situation takes an interesting turn even though they break up in the first round. Furthermore, Sandro’s death leaves a gaping hole in the drug scene of the titular neighborhood, which means someone new takes the reigns.
