This may seem a bit strange at first for those who follow the original TV series, since the story of Amar Es Para Siempre takes place in 1977, while the web series entitled #Luimelia takes place in 2020.
But this timeline change has helped the story to gain popularity, especially on social networks. That’s why the web series was recently awarded a GLAAD award.
#Luimelia offers a fresh look at the couple formed by Luisita Gómez and Amelia Ledesma, who are respectively played by Paula Usero and Carol Rovira.
The alchemy between the two actresses works well because they play their roles on television for three years.
Some actors from the original series have also joined them, such as Jonás Berami and Lucía Martín Abello as Nacho Solano and María Gómez, or Lena Fernández and Anto Garzía who make some appearances.
Through six episodes per season, we follow the evolution of the relationship between the two young women since their very first date.
The episodes of season 3 have just been released after two seasons aired last year.
I don’t know if they will keep the same agenda of two seasons a year yet, but that leaves us in any case 18 episodes to watch.
#Luimelia is available on the ATRESplayer PREMIUM platform which produces the series. Of course, each episode has English subtitles so we can all enjoy it.
This series is hilarious, as you can see by watching the trailers below.
