They travel from Madrid to Cadiz, where things get boisterous as they attempt to complete their bucket list challenges throughout the week. From making out with a girl, to using drugs together, to committing a crime, to solving unfinished business, to being totally honest with each other; The group grows even closer with clarity about their lives.

But after an intimate week together, will they be able to move on in their lives or reveal the truth to everyone? Leo also started her chemotherapy as her mother agreed to take care of her father with Alzheimer’s.
It was said that she had cancer, but it was not revealed what stage it is at. The show was released as a miniseries, meaning it’s meant to be a one-off thing. But if you look at the ending premises, the possibility of another season is not zero. How Leo might recover from cancer and how her friendship and relationship with her mother evolved during that time could be explored.
What does Carol decide about their marriage and will Sara and Alma give their love for each other a chance or not, that’s also a big question! Similarly, Olga and her relationship with David will remain just a good memory or a step for her to finally settle down with someone.
Though Netflix or its creators haven’t released any news about a renewal just yet. But depending on the reception and popularity with the audience, the creators could pursue the questions that the series leaves unanswered.
