If you’re here to find out more about season 2 of Alba then you have come to the right place. Let’s delve into detail.
What is “Alba” about?
Alba takes place in Marina Baixa. The story follows a university student named Alba (Elena Rivera) who is in a relationship with a young stud named Bruno (Eric Masip) who dwells in the same town as Alba. One particular night, Alba returns to her hometown to spend her holidays, she wakes up on the beach in the morning and discovers that she was gang raped. The shocking part is half of the male perpetrators are close friends with her boyfriend Bruno.
Actress Elena Rivera who plays Alba sat down with Télé-Loisirs and spoke about how she accepted such a difficult role in Alba.
She explained: “As an actress, I had to play this victim who tells her story over and over again without being believed.
“It was difficult and I was trying to feel what she might feel in that kind of situation.
“I believe that it is a series necessary to show once again that this kind of act exists.”
Also disclosing the explicit rape scene in the show, she asserted she struggled to keep herself as calm and composed as possible.
She described how that particular scene had a huge effect on her even after filming was done.
Rivera expanded: “Afterwards, I felt anxious, I felt nauseous at the idea that although we only did one performance, when it was something that happens in real life.
“I was a little shocked and shaken by the days that followed.”
Will There Be a Season 2 of Alba?
To be honest, it looks like the series won’t have a second season. It’s possible that Alba was only intended for a one-season thing. The ending in the first season wrapped everything with Alba getting justice and the male perpetrators getting the punishment they deserve.
Moreover, it’s already been four months since the first season landed, and till now we’ve heard of nothing from the showrunners concerning a second season. Without concrete information, it’s difficult to speculate what fate awaits for the show. Hopefully, we get an update soon.
