“Todo se vale,” the Rebelde season 2 trailer promises. “Siempre y cuando se vuelvan virales.” And everything goes as long as you go viral certainly seems to be the theme for a season that will bring a new director, new conflicts, new characters, and a lot of the same drama that made Rebelde season 1 such a success.
Season 2 also promises more music, of course. It wouldn’t be Elite Way School without it. But the main plot seems to revolve around the ramifications from exposing La Logia, which include a new, stricter director who seeks to break up the band, as well as the ire of both parents and powerful people in Mexico alike. No biggie, just another day for these teenagers.
There’s, of course, a One Direction joke as the new director pushes for solo careers for every member of the band, and someone (it’s Luka, obviously) comparing themselves to Harry Styles. But band issues and even romantic issues – new character Okane looks to be a love interest for the aforementioned Luka – there’s something even more sinister going on in the trailer.
Because the trailer teases a murder in EWS, which gives the second season of Rebelde a distinct Elite vibe, only with music. The question now, of course, is who is dying – and will the show actually kill off one of its main characters or are we just worrying for nothing? Either way, it’s an effective way to get fans to tune in, because as it stands, everyone’s worried about their favorite.
Rebelde season 2 arrives on Netflix July 27th.
