PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON AMAZON PRIME'S EPIC TV SERIES EL CID SECOND SEASON STARTING NEXT WEEK WITH FIVE BRAND NEW EPISODES!

  EL CID SEASON TWO  
STARTS NEXT WEEK!
El Cid season two will start July 15th!
When I first announced this series a few years ago I told you it would consist of ten episodes, but when the first season of Amazon Prime's EL CID historical series started last December it had just five of them. It was because they have actually split them into two five episode seasons and this is why the second one is ready to launch next week, July 15th, just half a year after the end of the first one. I cannot say I was overly impressed with the opening chapter last winter, it was rather bland, lacking in glamour, originality, thrills,

  1. Not exactly my kind of TV series, and we don't have Amazon prime either.

    1. They tried to spice it up with incest innuendos between Uracca and Alfonso, but it did not really work.

  4. If it was that unimpressive, I'll put it at the bottom of my list. I wonder they opted to split it into two seasons. Five episodes is very short..
