HBO and HBO Max today announced that 30 Coins Season 2 has been given the green light and the streaming service also is giving us a look at The Tourist, starring Jamie Dornan. You can watch previews for both shows by scrolling down.
Directed by Álex de la Iglesia and co-written by Álex de la Iglesia and Jorge Guerricaechevarría, the eight-episode second season of drama series 30 Coins will begin principal photography this month.
Most of the people of Pedraza have lost their minds, confined to a psychiatric hospital. Elena lies in a Madrid hospital bed in a coma; Paco, shattered by remorse, tries to take care of her.
As horror grows around them, our group of heroes must face a new enemy. Someone so perverse that even the devil fears him.
But what about Father Vergara? Has he died, along with his archenemy, Cardinal Santoro? Where do they hide, the tortured souls?
“If the first season was the gathering of the storm clouds, the second will be the maelstrom preceding an epic storm. The characters are involved in a hellish plot, where death and resurrection are two sides of the same coin,” said de la Iglesia.
The second season of 30 Coins will be shot in Spain, Italy, the US, France, and the UK.
The series’ executive producers for HBO Max are Steve Matthews, Miguel Salvat and Antony Root. Álex de la Iglesia and Carolina Bang are executive producers for Pokeepsie Films.
Production services for the second season are provided by Anciana Milenaria S.L., a Pokeepsie Films company.
The Tourist, starring Golden Globe nominee Jamie Dornan, debuts with all six episodes Thursday, March 3. The Max Original series is a co-production with BBC and Stan – HBO Max is the US streaming home for the series.
Dornan stars as a British man who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback being pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road.
An epic cat and mouse chase unfolds and the man later wakes in the hospital, hurt, but somehow alive — except he has no idea who he is.
With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, The Man’s search for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving outback.
The cast also includes Danielle Macdonald, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Damon Herriman, Alex Dimitriades, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and Kamil Ellis.
The Tourist is a Two Brothers Pictures (an All3Media company) production for the BBC, in association with Highview Productions, All3Media International, the South Australian Film Corporation, HBO Max, Stan and ZDF.
The 6×60 drama was written by BAFTA-nominated and Emmy and Golden Globe-winning producers and screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams (Baptiste, The Missing, Liar).
The Williams and Christopher Aird (Baptiste, Liar, Clique) serve as executive producers for Two Brothers Pictures and Tommy Bulfin (Normal People, Line of Duty, Peaky Blinders) for the BBC. Lisa Scott (A Sunburnt Christmas, The Hunting) is producer and Chris Sweeney (Liar, Back to Life) is executive producer and director.
