Amazon Prime Video and Pantaya, a Lionsgate and Hemisphere Media Group joint venture, announced the return of the critically-acclaimed series El Juego de las Llaves ('The Game of Keys'), with two new seasons greenlit for production. The provocative half-hour Spanish-language series is slated to return in 2020, launching exclusively on Prime Video in Mexico and more than 200 countries and territories around the world, and on Pantaya in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
The first season of "El Juego de las Llaves" premiered in August 2019 and was praised by critics as the series introduced audiences to a comedic outlook on long-term monogamy, self-realization and desire. Season one followed four long-lasting couples who are friends and decided to swing, and are then left to face the impact of their decisions on their relationships in the comedic aftermath.
Recently named the Best Series of 2019 by GQ Mexico and nominated for a GLAAD award for Outstanding Spanish-Language Scripted Television Series, the show features an all-star ensemble cast including Maite Perroni ('Cuidado Con El Angel', 'Rebelde'), Sebastián Zurita ('3 Idiotas', 'En Nombre del Amor'), Marimar Vega ('La Boda de Valentin'a, 'Amor de mis Amore's), Horacio Pancheri ('Un Camino Hacia el Destino'), Humberto Busto ('Oso Polar'), Hugo Catalan ('Falsa Identidad'), Ela Velden ('A que no me dejas') and Fabiola Campomanes ('Teresa', 'Mi Corazon Es Tuyo').
“The first season of 'El Juego de las Llaves' broke the mold by bringing the taboo topic of modern-day swinging into the social conversation, adding new depth and perspectives on how we approach relationships and commitment,” said James Farrell, VP International Originals at Amazon Studios. “Audiences are not going to want to miss the new seasons of the series as the story takes us even further into the world of ethical non-monogamy.”
Mario Almeida, VP of Development, Programming and Acquisitions for Pantaya said, “The success of season one of 'El Juego de las Llaves' is a testament to the incredible talent of the actors, writers, and production team who brought these characters to life. We are proud to highlight Latinx stories that push the boundaries and resonate with viewers who crave bold and original storytelling. We know that audiences will enjoy the upcoming games!”
"El Juego de las Llaves" was created by Marisa Quiroga and developed by Patrick McGinley, Veronica Bellver and Corazon Films' Sandro Halphen, alongside Amazon Prime Video and Pantaya.
The new seasons of the series will be directed by Kenya Marquez, Javier Colinas and Roberto Fiesco and produced by Pantaya and Corazón Films. Eckehardt von Damm, Roberto Fiesco and Sandro Halphen of Corazón Films serve as producers.
