Although it seems that decades have passed, the confinement of 2020 is still very recent. It was a time when people took the opportunity to watch streaming series and movies at close range. And one of those series was ‘La Unidad’, which reflected the experiences of the Police anti-terrorism team. The series premiered on Movistar + and convinced critics and the public. And, despite the fact that the premiere that same year of ‘Anti-riot’ eclipsed it for being on the same theme and on the same platform, the truth is that the good work of Dani de la Torre, Alberto Marini and the rest of the team earned them to be renewed for a second season. A new batch of episodes that arrives imminently on the television service.
Due to this return, in eCartelera we have spoken with the aforementioned Dani de la Torre and Alberto Marini, as well as with three members of their stellar cast: Nathalie Poza, Marian Álvarez and Michel Noher. Their characters are the three main protagonists of this second season of ‘The Unit’, and they will find themselves involved in a much more dangerous situation than before when a terrorist cell considers them the priority objective of their operations. “We bet more on action and on the human”considers Noher, very satisfied with the result. “I saw myself at the highest risk and that attracted me a lot”also points out Poza.
The series is full of large doses of adrenaline while showing a tone attached to the realistic. “You have to try to tell it and make it true”, points out from the Tower. To do this, as in the first season, the creative team of ‘La Unidad’ was able to meet again with members of the Police who advised them on the issues of this new installment. “When you talk to them, the feeling is that of being at the free buffet of a large hotel”comments Marini in relation to the choice of stories.
Roll with the pandemic
Despite the fact that two years have passed, anti-covid protocols are still the order of the day on filming. And the second season of ‘La Unidad’ was not going to be less. Although there are those, like Álvarez, who take it without too many problems and as a new habit, the truth is that it means a lot in the preparation of the production. “The extra budget goes almost a million euros in anti-covid protocols”explains resigned de la Torre. Even so, everyone is clear that they would return for a third season without hesitation, and some even already have ideas of where they would like to continue.
The complete second season of ‘La Unidad’ premieres on Friday, March 18 on Movistar+.
