Bernardo Velasco & Cassandra Ciangherotti On Season 2 Of HBO Original “Los Espookys”

Created by Fred Armisen, Ana Fabrega and Julio Torres, season two of the bilingual, six-episode comedy series Los Espookys will premiere on September 16, 2022 at 11:00 PM EST and PST on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max. The critically-acclaimed series follows a group of friends who turn their shared passion for horror into a peculiar business, providing horror to clients who need it in a dreamy Latin American country where the strange and eerie are just a part of daily life.

Starring Ana Fabrega, Julio Torres, Cassandra Ciangherotti, Bernardo Velasco and Fred Armisen, season two finds Los Espookys leader and gore enthusiast Renaldo (played by Bernardo Velasco) haunted by the ghost of a beauty pageant queen, while Úrsula (played by Cassandra Ciangherotti) enlists an old acquaintance to challenge the political status quo. Úrsula’s well-meaning sister, Tati (played by Ana Fabrega), is adjusting to her life as a newlywed, while balancing a new gig, and Renaldo’s ominous best friend, Andrés (played by Julio Torres) tries to find his place in the world after appeasing his inner demons. Meanwhile, Uncle Tico (played by Fred Armisen) is searching for a new purpose after his valet career has been derailed. Season two’s returning cast also includes recurring stars José Pablo Minor as Juan Carlos, River L. Ramirez as Sonia, Giannina Fruttero as Beatriz, Carmen Gloria Bresky as Mayor Teresa Lobos, Eudora Peterson as Krissy, and guest stars Greta Titelman as Ambassador Melanie Gibbons, Spike Einbinder as Sombra Del Agua, and Sam Taggart as JJ. Its new recurring cast includes Martine Gutierrez as Karina and guest stars Kim Petras, Isabella Rosellini and Yalitza Aparicio. This new second season was executive produced by Lorne Michaels, Fred Armisen, Ana Fabrega and Julio Torres along with Broadway Video’s Andrew Singer and Alice Mathias.
