It’s time for the latest chapter in the rags to riches life story. Grab your sun cream and jet off for another season of Acapulco – premiering on Apple TV+ on October 21
It’s time to check back into Las Colinas Resort! Apple TV+ today released the trailer for the second season of its hit bilingual comedy “Acapulco.” The Spanish and English-language series, which currently holds a perfect 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, stars an acclaimed, international cast led by SAG-Award winner Eugenio Derbez. “Acapulco” returns for its ten-episode second season Friday, October 21, 2022, on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly every Friday through December 16, 2022.
Season two picks up right on the heels of season one, telling the story of 20-something Máximo Gallardo, whose dream comes true when he scores the job of a lifetime as a cabana boy at the hottest resort in Acapulco, Las Colinas. In 1985, Máximo must contend with upheaval at the resort, unexpected problems at home and a new love interest who just might rival the girl of his dreams. Under Don Pablo’s guidance, he sets his eyes on one day running the entire Las Colinas operation by becoming Diane’s right-hand man. Meanwhile, in present day, Older Máximo returns to Acapulco to make peace with the recent passing of Don Pablo, and he is forced to confront some unfinished business young Máximo left behind.
The hilarious new series looks to be one of the standout hits of Apple’s autumn slate. And will deliver some much-needed summer fun during the increasingly cold autumn months. With its light-hearted slapstick and coming-of-age hijinks, the show is a shoo-in to shoot straight to the top of our autumnal watchlist. But don’t take my word for it. Grab your sun cream and check out the trailer below.
