The show features a Hispanic cast and is a story about friendship. It will put the loyalty of true friends to test. But will the group pass this test? Well, that is for the show to tell. However, we are lucky enough to know a decent amount of information regarding the plot of the upcoming Apple original.
The recent pictures released by the streaming site have set up a very warm theme for the show. It shows the same group of friends having the time of their lives and living their young life carelessly. However, the other set of pictures is of the same group 20 years later.
They set a completely opposite mood for the future of the show. Why? Because the cast seems to be in distress. Their eyes no longer had the shine that their younger selves had.
Moreover, some keen fans even noticed that one of the group members was missing in the group photo which was taken 20 years later. Although we can’t say much about that character’s disappearance, one thing is for sure that throughout the 8 episodes of the TV series we will go through a series of emotions. Of course, it will be a fun rollercoaster ride!
Apple has inarguably recruited a hard-working team! The show has been ordered from Bambú Producciones and the creators Ramón Campos, Teresa Fernández-Valdés and Gema R. Neira. Campos and Fernández-Valdés will also serve as showrunners for “Now and Then”, with Neira and Campos serving as writers for all 8 episodes of the series.
The upcoming show is not getting appreciated just for its diversity but also for its unique storyline which caters to different kinds of issues. In case you are interested in getting to know more about the show make sure to have a look at the original set pictures.
