O help whet fans' appetites, Netflix has just released a teaser for the second season of Invisible City, a Brazilian production that has won over audiences both in Brazil and around the world. After a two-year wait, this is a first look at new scenes from the series. In addition to the return of some familiar names, the trailer features new characters and gives us a taste of what to expect from forthcoming episodes.
In this second season, after a long absence, we see Eric (Marco Pigossi) in a nature reserve near Belém do Pará, which is protected by indigenous people and sought after by prospectors. He discovers that his daughter, Luna (Manu Dieguez), and Cuca (Alessandra Negrini) have been living in the region with the aim to bring him back to life. Although he wants to return to Rio de Janeiro immediately with Luna, Eric realizes that his daughter has a greater mission to undertake in the region. At the same time, in trying to protect her, he becomes a threat to the delicate balance between nature and the entities.
The teaser released today is partially narrated in the indigenous Tukano language, brought to the screen by the character of Pajé Jaciara (Ermelinda Yepario). "We are taking the second season to Belém, a major city rich with stories. The new episodes show an indigenous Brazil, from the North, multi-faceted and with new entities and fascinating elements from popular culture," Carlos Saldanha explained.
Made by Pródigo Filmes, Cidade Invisível features Carlos Saldanha as creator and executive producer and Luis Carone as general director, as well as directors Cassiano Prado, Graciela Guarani and Luciana Baptista.
