An environmental thriller created by Globoplay, the second season will focus on the impacts of the oil industry.
After the global success of season one of Aruanas, Globo confirms the production of the second part of the series, an invitation to catch a glimpse of a more fair and sustainable future.
The second season, which was already being shot in São Paulo, was created and written by Estela Renner and Marcos Nisti, with final scriptwriting by Carolina Kotscho and artistic direction by André Felipe Binder – who is also the director of Hidden Truths, the 2016 Emmy Award winner for Best Telenovela.
In the new episodes, with no premiere date defined, the activists of the NGO Aruana – who in season one fought against environmental crimes of mining companies in the Amazon – take on a new challenge: to investigate the impacts of the oil industry, also in a fictional city just like on the first season.
A fictional work freely inspired by true events, Aruanas proposes a global discussion on urgent issues.
The series is an original production by Globo exclusively for Globoplay, in a co-production with Maria Farinha Filmes, and was globally launched in 2019 on the direct-to-consumer platform aruanas.tv, reaching 150 countries and in 11 languages.
It has been recently licensed for OTT platforms in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg and Switzerland.
