Netflix has set the premiere date for Sky High: The Series, a spinoff of the 2021 Spanish action-crime thriller film Sky High. Check out the teaser.
For folks who watched Sky High and want to know what happened to Ángel (Miguel Herrán, Money Heist), the answer comes in Sky High: The Series (Hasta el cielo: La serie), which picks up almost immediately after the film’s final scene. (Spoiler follows, can’t be helped.)
You know it isn’t good news when you get a phone call in the middle of the night. And so it is for Sole (Asia Ortega, The Boarding School: Las Cumbres), whose life changes the moment she answers it: Ángel, her husband and the leader of a gang of thieves, has died. Now she’s a widow and a single mother of a young son, with much to take care of and many troubled businesses to run. But she isn’t willing to go back to her father, Rogelio (Luis Tosar, The Minions of Midas), one of the biggest dealers of stolen goods in Madrid, for help.
Rather, Sole is determined to make it on her own — making contact with the gang and managing to win their trust so that she can once again carry out robberies as ambitious as those of the old days. She also finds new allies who help her unravel the mystery of the deaths that have marked her destiny. Still, Sole has her challenges cut out for her, as she and the gang will have to stay one step ahead of both the police and the mafias they compete against if they are going to succeed… and survive.
Sky High: The Series, a Netflix Series, premieres globally on Friday, March 17, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)
In addition to Ortega and Tosar, the actors reprising their Sky High film roles for the series are Patricia Vico (Parot) as Mercedes, Áyax Pedrosa (Code Name Emperor) as Motos, Dollar Selmouni (Fanático) as Gitano, Richard Holmes (Piggy) as Poli, Olmo Suárez “Jarfaiter” (Piggy) as Toño, and Carlytos Vela as Pintas. New cast members include Álvaro Rico (Holy Family) as Fernan, Carmen Sánchez (The Boarding School) as Marta, Luisa Mayol (Eye for an Eye) as Carmen “La Rubia,” and Tomás del Estal (Antidisturbios) as Ferrán.
A production of Vaca Films (Infiesto), the series is directed and showrun by Daniel Calparsoro (Apaches) and written by co-showrunner Jorge Guerricaechevarría (30 Coins), who also serves as executive producer alongside Borja Pena and Emma Lustres.
