We’ve known it since last December: the Spanish series “Un Dos Tres” is going to make a comeback in a revival called “UPA Next”. And to seduce the fans of the first hour, the former students will make their return. Already three central characters have been announced.
UPA Next: the sequel to Un Dos Tres is coming
If you were a teenager in the early 2000s, chances are you’ve already come across Un dos Tres. Indeed, the Spanish series was broadcast on M6 between 2004 and 2005. For six seasons, the program focused on the daily life of a prestigious performing arts school in Madrid (the Carmen Arranz school).
The episodes followed the wanderings of students and teachers, both in their professional and private lives. So, of course, it was about dancing, but also stories of love and friendship.
The main characters of Un dos Tres were Lola Fernandez (Beatriz Luengo), Pedro Salvador (Pablo Puyol), Roberto Arenales (Miguel Angel Munoz), Marta Ramos (Dafne Fernandez), Silvia Jauregui (Monica Cruz), and Ingrid Munoz (Silvia Marty).
More than fifteen years after the end of the series, Carmen Arranz’s school is about to reopen its doors! Indeed, a revival of the series is in preparation. Her name? UPA Next (from the initials of the original series title: A Paso Adelante).
Already three returning stars
This new series should combine new faces and the return of former students. To play on the sensitive chord of aficionados of the show, many returns are expected.
Indeed, as announced by our colleagues from Seriouslythree characters from the original series have already been confirmed for the casting of UPA Next. They are Lola (Beatriz Luengo), Silvia (Monica Cruz) and Roberto (Miguel Angel Munoz).
The good news is that the three actors will not only make an appearance, but they will also have roles in the foreground. Obviously, the first hypothesis is that all three of them became teachers at the Carmen Arranz school. Unless Silvia took over from her aunt as a manager?
Further casting announcements are expected soon. We can therefore expect that Pedro and Ingrid will also be there.
UPA Next will be broadcast at the end of the year on the streaming platform Atresplayer Premium in Spain. In France, since Salto owns the broadcasting rights to Un dos Tres there is a good chance that the series will end up there.
