Jose Velasco and Luis Arranz created ‘El Cid’. It is a Spanish action-drama historical production centered on Rodrigo Diaz de Vigar, a Castilian warlord and knight. Ruy, his son, is taken to the capital of Leon by Ruy, a lower nobleman. He does not know what awaits him there when he becomes a political activist. Here’s everything you need to know about El Cid season 3!
Will El Cid be renewed for a season 3 or cancelled?
The Spanish crime drama series marked its debut on December 18, 2020, on Prime Video. The second season was launched on July 15, 2021, on the same platform. El Cid has so far launched a total of two seasons and both seasons consist of five episodes which sum up to a total of ten episodes.
However, as of September 2022, showrunners José Velasco and Luiz Arranz have not renewed or canceled the series for a third season yet and there’s been no update regarding a fourth installment but fans should not worry as the possibility of getting a new season is still very much on the cards.
Previously, co-creator Luiz Arranz in one of his interviews revealed that they intend to run the series for five or six seasons more. But this all comes down to the audience on how they want the story to be portrayed. Arranz further dropped some important details concerning the third season that the script for the forthcoming season is almost finished and currently, they’re waiting for Amazon’s green signal. Hopefully, it’s a positive one.
El Cid Season 3 plot: What to expect?
The balance of power changes significantly in the second season, especially since King Fernando was deposed. His sons Sancho, Alfonso and Garcia became rulers of Galicia and Leon, respectively. Urraca, the Lady of Zamora, has not lost her desire for power and continues to be influential on the political scene. With each of Fernando’s children seeking control of the Iberian Peninsula and Queen Sancha powerless, a great war is inevitable. Ruy is faced with difficult choices and must make a decision.
In the third instalment, we will learn what Ruy’s future holds. This is especially true since he seems to have turned against the King in season 2. The warring siblings seem unwilling to let the hatchet rest. So, peace may be unthinkable for the peoples of Zamora and Castile, Galicia and Leon. That’s our anticipation so far. The makers, however, are yet to make any formal announcements regarding the season 3 plot of the series.
El Cid season 3 cast: who’s going to be in the third edition?
As of right now, the makers haven’t made an official announcement regarding the season 3 cast. However, we expect most of the cast members to return for the third edition. Jaime Lorente, Lucia Guerrero and Jose Luis Garcia Perez (Fernando the Great), Elia Galera (Queen Sancha) and Alicia Sanz will definitely return for season 3.
Francisco Ortiz, Jaime Olias, Nicolas Illoro and Lucia Diez may also return. When the third season continues, most of them will reprise their roles. We may not see Jose Luis Garcia Perez and Elia Galera in flashbacks, since their characters died in seasons 1 and 2. There is also a possibility that new actors will join the cast.
