Apple TV is once again showing its commitment to bilingual programming, with the trailer for the new Apple Original thriller Now & Then, allowing Rosie Perez a chance to shine. The series, which features a bilingual cast, will launch globally with three episodes on Friday, May 20th, with new episodes airing weekly afterward.

The streamer’s first foray into bilingual programming, the comedy series Acapulco, which stars Eugenio Derbez, has been renewed for a second season. 

Now & Then, a thriller that explores the “differences between youthful aspirations and the realities of adulthood” follows a group of college friends whose lives are forever changed after a weekend of celebration ends with one of them dead. Twenty years later, the remaining five are once against reunited when someone figures out their secret and threatens to expose them, leading them to make increasingly questionable decisions to preserve the lives they’ve built.

The series, which will feature Rosie Perez as Flora, the detective who was originally assigned to the case and who always suspected there was more to the story, also stars a wide cast. Those include the likes of Marina de Tavira, José María Yazpik, Manolo Cardona, Soledad Villamil, Jorge López, Alicia Jaziz, Dario Yazbek Bernal, Jack Duarte, and Miranda de la Serna, among others.

In addition to Now & Then and Acapulco, Apple TV’s upcoming slate is set to include stories from Alfonso Cuarón, who has an overall deal to develop television projects for the streamer, and Midnight Family, a Spanish language medical drama from Gibrán Portela and Julio Rojas, and executive produced by Pablo Larraín and Juan de Dios Larraín.
