Produced by Prime Video and Secuoya Studios, the series follows the adventures of the classic hero Zorro.

Prime Video has announced that the new Zorro series, starring Miguel Bernardeau (Elite, 1889) and Renata Notni (El Dragón, La Venganza de las Juanas) will premiere in the first half of 2024 in Portugal, Spain, Latin America, the United States and Andorra.

The production, filmed in the Canary Islands, follows the adventures of the classic hero, Zorro, with a modern and global focus that will conquer new generations. The cast, made up of Spanish and Mexican talent, “brings this legend to life as a symbol of justice and defender of the oppressed.”

“At Prime Video we are very excited to be collaborating with Secuoya Studios to bring this new Zorro to life. It is a privilege to be able to present such an iconic and beloved story. We’ll excite our customers with all the action, heroism, and the highest production values you’ve come to expect from Zorro. This series reaffirms our commitment to creating original and quality content”, confirms Javiera Balmaceda, Head of Local Originals LATAM.

David Martínez, director of fiction at Secuoya, expressed his enthusiasm for the project. “After eight months of recording in Gran Canaria and in the midst of the final post-production phase, we expect the series to premiere in the first half of 2024. Created by Carlos Portela and directed by Javier Quintas, Jorge Saavedra, and José Luis Alegría, this production represents an innovative global perspective on the classic hero. We firmly believe that the debut on Prime Video will be a success, consolidating this great bet as one of the most notorious among the releases of the next year.”

The Zorro series is a fresh and updated take on the classic character, produced by David Martínez, David Cotarelo, Ángela Agudo, Sergio Pizzolante, Andy Kaplan, Jesús Torres-Viera, John Gertz and Glenda Pacanins.

The series will be broadcast in the United States on Amazon Prime Video and will be distributed internationally by the Mediawan Rights group. The events of this reboot will take place in 1830 in Los Angeles and will trace the origin story of the Californian hero, Don Diego de la Vega, his real name. He will be determined to find the person who killed his father and will discover family secrets that will change his destiny forever.
