‘The Five Juanas’ Recap: Latest Netflix Series
Romero's back with another hit
After Bernardo Romero’s hit soap opera ‘Las Juanas‘, her daughter Jimena Romero is back with the re-imagination of it. It’s titled as ‘La venganza de las Juanas‘ in Spanish and ‘The Five Juanas‘ in English. This latest series is premiering on Oct 6, 2021 on Netflix.
The story backtracks to what Bernardo Romero portrayed in his telenovela. In Las Junas, Juana Valentina (older of the Juanas sisters), Calixto (his illegitimate father) and his son Rubén together finds the rest of the Juanas sisters and live happily under the same roof.
But in ‘The Five Juanas’, five sisters accidentally spot each other’s tattoo, a mustard colored spot in the shape of a fish which is same just like their father’s and together they set to unravel the mystery behind it.
Similarity between newly released Netflix series and the old fashioned series is that both have five sisters with same name and same tattoos. All five are strangers to each other and only Juana Valentina (older among them) knows her true father.
Juanas real father don’t know if he has five daughters. He is happily living with his wife and a son. After Juanas reunite and find him, he wants nothing to do with them. He uses his power and money to suppress them. Juanas being tough, taught him lesson of his life.
This new series is more inclined on political aspects. This is more interesting and fun to watch.
