With a successful run in each of the two crime shows, the actress has become quite a fan-favourite of late.
It seems the world has only lately discovered the brilliance of Spanish crime shows, and not a bit too early! With Netflix promising to air the best of the lot on its platform, fans around the world sit enthralled with the kind of mind-blowing gritty shows Spain can come up with.
- On ‘Locked Up’ Season 6
- Will Saray return if there is a new season?
There’s ‘Money Heist’ which broke records when it topped Netflix’s charts of the most-watched, non-English TV series – not just in one country, but internationally. Then, there’s the equally thrilling ‘Locked Up’ or ‘Vis a Vis’, about a young woman who gets falsely imprisoned through the fraudulence of her lover.
A common factor in both shows is the actress Alba Flores, whose portrayal of two different characters in each show has won the hearts of fans everywhere.
But ‘Locked Up’ seems to have officially concluded with its spin-off (or the show’s fifth season) ‘Vis a Vis: El Oasis’, even though fans seem to be loudly clamouring for more seasons of the show. But would Alba Flores return for ‘Locked Up’ Season 6, if it is renewed again?
On ‘Locked Up’ Season 6
In the first few seasons, the spotlight was on the character of Macarena Ferreiro (played by Maggie Civantos), how she seeks a retrial and how the involvement of her family members to get her out of prison gets them embroiled dangerously. If Macarena is the “good” person stuck in jail, Zulema (Najwa Nimri) is the designated villain of the show, who uses the prison for her own purpose, even running a personal business in it.
The spin-off of the show is also in a way its fifth season, and it focused on Macarena and Zulema who have now joined hands and go on criminal ventures. Fans are already convinced that if there is a ‘Locked Up’ Season 6, it is going to be interesting, with the duo continuing their criminal journey outside the prison walls.
Will Saray return if there is a new season?
But the question on the minds of most fans is if Flores will return if there is a new season.
The actress plays the character of Saray Vargas de Jesús, who is Zulema’s loyal aid and close friend. She is in prison on a case of assault, serving a sentence of 4 years, and is a gypsy and lesbian.
Fans think that it is possible for Saray to have an extensive, interesting role in another possible season. She escapes from the prison along with Zulema and Altagracia but turns into Zulema’s archnemesis from being her best friend at the end of season 4.
However, in season 5, the actress comes on the show only as a guest. If a whole new series is created, based on the spin-off Saray may not get a starring role.
But, given the actress’s popularity, who’s to say that the creators of the show may not give the character a spin-off of its own? And with a character as interesting as Saray, the narrative could go in so many directions!
