Currently in production, Season 2 of 30 Coins (30 Monedas) will see Paul Giamatti (Billions, John Adams, American Splendor) starring as Christian Barbrow, an American tech and business billionaire, science guru, writer of sci-fi novels, and head of a mysterious “Brotherhood” that counts amongst its members the world’s elite. He is the ultimate disruptor, but nobody knows his true intentions.

Giamatti joins returning cast members Miguel Ángel Silvestre (Sky Rojo, Velvet), Megan Montaner (Velvet Colección, The Embassy), and Eduard Fernández (Criminal: Spain, The Zone), as well as new cast member Najwa Nimri (Money Heist, Locked Up).

Following the events in Season 1, the new season finds most of the people of Pedraza have lost their minds, confined to a psychiatric hospital. Elena (Megan Montaner) lies in a coma in a Madrid hospital, and Paco (Miguel Ángel Silvestre), shattered by remorse, tries to take care of her. As horror grows around them, our heroes must face a new enemy — someone so perverse that even the devil fears him.
