The Colombian crime series The Marked Heart (original title Pálpito) was created by Leonardo Padrón and is on Netflix to see. It describes a chain of events that is set in motion when Simón’s wife Valeria is killed so that her heart can be used to save millionaire wife Camila. The murder is committed because Zacarías is willing to do anything to keep Camila alive. But he remains in the dark about how he managed to find a donor in such a short time.
Things get even more complicated when sparks fly between Simón and Camila. But their lives will never be the same once they learn the truth about each other. The dramatic narrative with unexpected twists keeps viewers on their toes. You must be wondering what will happen to the characters after the cliffhanger at the end of Season 1. The crime drama originally released in April 2022, and here’s what we can tell you about a possible Season 2!
The Marked Heart Season 2 Release Date
Season 1 of The Marked Heart was released on Netflix on April 20, 2022. The first season has 14 episodes, each 38-51 minutes long.
As for the second season of the series, here’s what to report. There is currently no news on whether or not the series will return. Still, it seems that a second round is very likely. First and foremost, the narrative of the first episode lays the foundation for a sequel, because it ends on an exciting note.
Also, non-English language series are thriving on Netflix as the platform helps attract a large international audience. Spanish-language crime fiction is doing quite well, with the success of shows like Money Heist, Elite and Who Killed Sara? indicates. They all did more than one season. So we expect the same fate for Padrón’s series.
Although Season 1 completed its three-month filming in July 2021, it took nine months for the episodes to appear on Netflix. So if the series is going to be renewed soon, it will take the production team at least a year before a new season can air. If the thriller gets the green light by summer 2022, we expect Season 2 of The Marked Heart to release sometime in Q2 2023.
The Marked Heart Season 2 Cast: Who Could Play?
When the series returns, most of the main cast could reprise their roles. They include Michel Brown (Simón), Ana Lucía Domínguez (Camila), Sebastián Martínez (Zacarías), Valeria Emiliani (Samantha) and Juan Fernando Sánchez (Sarmiento). Margarita Muñoz may continue to appear as Valeria as the character appears in Camila’s visions and flashbacks.
If the series gets the green light for another round, we could also see Mauricio Cujar (Braulio Cárdenas), Moisés Arizmendi (Mariachi), Valeria Emiliani (Samantha), Julián Cerati (Tomás) and Jacqueline Arenal (Greta Volcán). It’s possible that new cast members will be added in a possible second season, as new characters are likely to be introduced to keep the plot interesting.
The Marked Heart Season 2 Plot: What Could It Be?
In Season 1, Simón finds out who Camila really is. On the other hand, Camila learns what Zacarías did to get the heart that is now beating in her chest. Therefore, she tries desperately to get away from her husband and even adopts a new identity. At the end of the season, Camila admits that while she’s in love with Simón, it’s time to move on. After an emotional farewell to Simón and his two children, she sets out to start a new life. However, in the final moments of the season, Zacarías receives a video that may show Camila in a new location.
Zacarías seeing Camila’s video could be an interesting starting point for a possible season 2. Will Zacarías and his henchmen track down Camila? Also, it seems that the feelings between Simón and Camila are far from resolved. So it could only be a matter of time before the two get back together, even if it could cost them both quite a lot. But we won’t know all of that until the series returns with a second installment.
