LOS ANGELES (EFE).—Yalitza Aparicio will be the protagonist of the first episode of the return of the series “Mujeres Asesinas” to television, which can be seen on the “streaming” platform ViX+ of the TelevisaUnivision group.
The platform announced the project on Wednesday after incessant rumors that the series, which became one of the most popular fictions in Mexico between 2008 and 2010, was preparing a fourth season.
In the end it will not be a continuation of the original story, but rather the platform will release a new version of the format.
Written by the Spanish Alicia Luna, the new “Mujeres Asesinas” will have eight independent episodes, each one about a crime inspired by “real life”, ViX + advanced on the plot in a statement.
“The protagonists of this series did not have a simple, calm or happy life. They faced violent partners, manipulative fathers or mothers, hostile bosses and humiliating situations… Without resources or psychological help, they reached the limit of their strength in tragic situations from which they had no way of escaping, being jail or death less terrifying than continuing to endure it, “he explained.
The series will be part of the paid catalog of ViX, a platform focused on productions in Spanish that aspires to become the leader in the Hispanic market after the merger of the Televisa group (Mexican) with Univision (American).
Among other projects, Yalitza Aparicio plans to premiere a medical drama called “Midnight Family” currently in development in Mexico City and directed by brothers Pablo and Juan de Dios Larraín for Apple TV+.
He will also participate in the film by Mexican director Luis Mandoki, “Presencias”. Before, in 2021, she starred in “Daughters of Witches”, by director Faride Schroeder, which was the first appearance of Yalitza Aparicio after her overwhelming success in “Roma” (2018), winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
