Now Teresa leads a life in complete anonymity in Italy, as “Maria Dantes”, where she is raising her daughter Sofia in the Tuscan villa Massa Marittima.
Created by Arturo Pérez-Reverte, this second season is written by Roberto Stopello, Juan Marcos Blanco, Miguel Ferrari and José Miguel Núñez.Marcos Santana is the executive producer and showrunner of the series with Martha Godoy, of Telemundo, and Rodrigo Guerrero, of AG Studios, as executive producers.
It is a co-production of Telemundo Global Studios and Netflix. Telemundo has the exclusive rights for U.S. and Puerto Rico, and Netflix has the exclusive rights for the rest of the world for OTT.
