Netflix VP of Marketing Latin America Vini Losacco revealed the news at CCXP (AKA the Sao Paulo Comic Con Experience) during a panel devoted to the series. While in classic Netflix tradition, no statistics are available as to how the series performed, an audience of 3,500 was there to watch the cast, including Bianca Comparato, Vaneza Oliveira, Michel Gomes, Rafael Lozano, Viviane Porto and Rodolfo Valente, learn the news.
