Netflix exclusively confirmed to the TV News that Cidade Invisível, a national series on the platform starring Marco Pigossi, has been renewed for the second season. The production was a public and critical success and reached the list of the top 10 most visited attractions of the service in 40 countries.
In the plot, Eric (Pigossi) is an environmental policeman who suffers from the woman’s death in a fire surrounded by mysteries. Since then, he raises his daughter alone and seeks the culprit for the crime that victimized his partner.
The protagonist begins to live between reality and an invisible world inhabited by fantastic beings, after encountering a pink dolphin on a beach in Rio de Janeiro. He then realizes that not everything is as it seems.
With seven episodes, the first season of Cidade Invisível explored the legends of Brazilian folklore and introduced creatures such as Cuca, Saci, mermaids and Curupira.
Also in the cast are Alessandra Negrini, Jessica Córes, Fábio Lago, Wesley Guimarães, Manu Diegues, José Dumont, Victor Sparapane and Áurea Maranhão.
Carlos Saldanha, Brazilian director nominated for an Oscar and known for the animated franchises Ice Age and Rio, is the creative mind behind the Netflix series.
“It is a great joy to see our product, from Brazil, reach so many parts of the world and please so many people. It was my first 100% Brazilian project, with Prodigo Films, and I couldn’t be happier with the opportunity to continue telling this story. I received a lot of comments, I read a lot about what people want for the continuation, and I’m taking everything into consideration to bring a nice sequence to the public “, said Saldanha in an official note.
Next season, the director plans to leave Rio de Janeiro, explore another region of the country and introduce new folk characters to the public (more actors will join the cast; nominations have not yet been confirmed).
“Invisible City was born from a very beautiful desire to rescue characters from our folklore. These are stories that are part of the affective memory of Brazilians, but that had not yet been approached with a contemporary vision. At the same time that we are celebrating the positive return of fans of the series here and in other countries, we also recognize that we have an even greater commitment to making more people see themselves represented in this second season “, says Haná Vaisman, content manager for Netflix Original Series in Brazil.
