Acapulco Season 2 will begin production in the spring, once again shooting on site in Mexico.
Enrique Arrizon appears in the Spanish and English-language comedy series as Máximo Gallardo, whose dream comes true when he lands the job of a lifetime as a cabana boy at Acapulco’s finest resort in 1984. But he quickly discovers that the work is considerably more challenging than he thought, and all of his ideas and principles are called into question. Eugenio Derbez narrates the series and portrays Máximo in the current day.

Acapulco Season 2 Release Date

There is no official teaser or clips to show what Season 2 will bring. Even though it will pick up where the previous season left off, the main plot will remain the same – our protagonist coming to terms with the fact that not everything that glitters is gold.
Acapulco Season 1 Recap
Season 1 contained ten episodes and told the story of Maximo, who, with the aid of a guy called Pablo, lands a job as a pool-side worker at the fantasy resort. The set is visually appealing and vibrant, making it a pleasure to see. While working there, Maximo falls in love with a girl from the front office, who turns out to be the owner’s son’s girlfriend.
Can Maximo violate his ideals in order to sleep with a lady he likes? The commentary is provided by an older Maximo who is looking back upon his younger self and poking fun of himself at moments but also recognizing his hardships at others. As the narrative progresses, we must wait to see whether he saves enough money to pay for his mother’s cataract operation, while also developing new significant connections and dealing with a few betrayals. More information would ruin the surprise and flood you with spoilers.
Acapulco was inspired by the 2017 film How to Be a Latin Lover, in which Derbez also appeared. The multilingual structure of Acapulco is part of the streaming company’s goal to modernise storylines and introduce fresh voices into the realm of streaming. Squid Game, a Korean language series that became a pop culture hit in the United States and throughout the globe, has shown that series do not have to offer English-only content. To add to its multilingual programming arsenal, Apple is also working on a Korean version of Min Jin Lee’s book Pachinko, which was a critical and financial hit in 2017.
There is no news on when we could return to the Las Colinas resort for Acapulco season two. If you can’t get enough of Eugenio Derbez, you may watch the Apple Original film CODA, for which Derbez just won a SAG Award.
