Oriol Paulo’s Spanish television mystery-thriller miniseries The Innocent is based on the same-titled Harlan Coben book. Mario Casas, Alexandra Jiménez, Aura Garrido, and José Coronado are the show’s main actors. On April 30, 2021, Netflix made it available.
When Mat accidentally kills a boy by the name of Dani during a nightclub scuffle, catastrophe results. Mat leaves prison after completing a four-year sentence and seeks to rebuild his life. And he does a respectable job of it as well.
Soon after, he begins dating a woman named Olivia, and the two plan to start a new life together. Sadly, the past has a funny way of creeping up on you, and Mat soon experiences flashbacks. Even worse, Olivia goes missing on a business trip to Berlin.
The Innocent earns rave reviews from both reviewers and viewers and goes on to become one of the most famous Spanish TV shows (El Dragon). The show receives a 7.9 out of 10 rating on IMDB, a 100% reviewer approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and an 87% average audience rating. That is just amazing.
The Innocent Season 2 Release Date
The Spanish setting of The Innocent examines a murder case from various angles. This TV show centers around Mateo Vidal, a lawyer who once murdered a guy inadvertently while attempting to break up a fight in a nightclub. He is then given a four-year prison term. After being released from prison, he secretly meets the victim’s mother, Sonia, and poses as her deceased son to lift her spirits. That is until Mateo’s girlfriend Olivia vanishes and brings the shadowy pasts to life.
Season 2 of The Innocent won’t likely premiere until at least spring 2022 if Netflix decides to renew it. New seasons of Netflix series are typically released on the streaming platform around a year apart. With the pandemic, that divide has grown a little wider.
Therefore, assuming a second season is produced, we anticipate The Innocent season 2 to debut on Netflix in the spring or summer of 2022.
Are the episodes in The Innocent connected?
Episodes 1 and 2 nearly have the sensation of being from two different series because this one is so character-driven. Close! The tale connects with the concluding scene of episode 1 at the end of episode 2. Every episode typically has a cliffhanger ending, so be prepared to binge-watch this series if you become addicted. You probably will if you enjoy the stories of Harlan Coben!
Mario Casas, who portrays Mateo “Mat” Vidal, the main character, turns in an extremely strong performance. Additionally, although generally in fantastic form, he has bulked up for his role as The Innocent. And since it immediately affects the plot, this is definitely intentional.
Mario Casas is the only influential performer in The Innocents miniseries, which has eight episodes. The focus of Episode 2 is Alexandra Jiménez’s character Lorena Ortiz. Similar to how Mario Casas narrates episode 1, she also describes this episode. A third character serves as the episode’s narrator.
Is The Innocent worth watching?
A few years ago, Netflix agreed to adapt several of author Harlan Coben’s books. We didn’t anticipate that the deal would result in alterations being made in several other nations. The Innocent, the most recent Coben adaptation, relocates the action from the United States to Spain without diluting any of the plot points that made the book famous 16 years ago.
The mystery of The Innocent develops slowly, almost torturous, just like in most of the Harlan Coben adaptations we’ve seen on Netflix, including The Stranger, The Woods, and Safe. Who knew what and what the main character’s friends and loved ones are hiding are the real mysteries, not who did what.
Because of the solid performances and the fact that the writers shied away from genre conventions, we are hesitantly endorsing The Innocent. But this mystery is complicated for us to comprehend, which is a problem.
