What to watch on Netflix
Let’s put aside The Squid Game -that there is enough talk about him- to look at Revenge of the Juanas. And it is that although Turkish soap operas are now fashionable, we are left with a more traditional one, produced and created in Mexico. This series with no less than 18 episodes in its first season (about 40 minutes long) tells the story of five women who do not know each other, but have the same birthmark (shaped like a fish) and the same name, Juana. All will discover that they share more than they imagined, assuming that none of them knows the identity of their father.
Portrayed by Zuria Vega, Oka Giner, Juanita Arias, Renata Notni, Sofía Engberg, and produced by Lemon Films, the series, which is a reissue of another previous Mexican novel called Las Juanas, does not reach the level of The house of flowers, but it is still a format that engages and that will surely appeal to lovers of televised novels.
