A dialogue based on 44 interviews with family, friends, artists and journalists, including Juan “El Golosina”, Carmen Flores, Rosalía and C. Tangana. “Lola” comes to us as the definitive story of a symbol whose loss is lamented today by our cultural imaginary.
2. Maid (Netflix)
Actress Margaret Qualley, recently featured in Quentin Tarantino’s latest installment, having acted alongside Sigourney Weaver not long ago and starred in a short by Olivia Wilde, is back on Netflix on October 1, starring in the new series from Molly Smith Metzler. The story tightens the noose around comedy and drama to narrate the tale of a single mother doing housework to make ends meet.
3. You (Netflix)
On the 15th comes the third season of “You”, one of the most disturbing series where social networks and computing are the main vectors, and that holds its own steadfastly next to “Mr. Robot”. This next installment, after it was revealed that Love was pregnant and also a murderer, must solve the mess, justifying, or not, the third volume in the saga of novels on which the series is based, about to be published.
4. I Know What You Did Last Summer (Prime Video)
If Ryan Murphy gave us back the essence of the slasher with his anthology “American Horror Story: 1984”, “I Know What You Did Last Summer” emerges as a remake of the 1997 film of the same name, starring teenagers being chased by a murderer on their graduation night.

5. Succession (HBO)
The drama series that made such a major impact at the Emmys last year returns on the 18th with a third season in which tempers fray within the Roy family. The drawbacks arose with the attempt to designate the patriarch’s successor, and from there exploded onto the scene an almost Shakespearean conflict, returning the prestige of yesteryear to the small screen. One of the main features and subject of acclaim from both critics and audience alike from the first two installments of Jesse Armstrong’s series is his fidelity in dissecting the New York upper class.
