Dark Desire (Oscuro Deseo in Spanish) became a global hit when its first season premiered on Netflix in July 2020. At one point, it became the most-watched debut season of a non-English series in Netflix's history. Netflix released 18 episodes of the thrilling drama series that originates from Mexico by Argos Comunicación. The end of Season 1 answered a lot of mysterious questions, but it also left a lot of loose ends that need to be tied in the future episodes, so fans are expecting Season 2 to tie them up.
Just in case you're not familiar, here's the premise of Dark Desire: “Married Alma spends a fateful weekend away from home that ignites passion, ends in tragedy and leads her to question the truth about those close to her.”
While fans of steamy shows and movies are still waiting for 365 Days 2, we have some details for the sequel of Dark Desire, including its release date, plot, cast, and an official trailer.
Here's everything you need to know about Dark Desire Season 2:

Dark Desire Season 2 Plot: What to expect from the story?
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Dark Desire Episode 18, The Answer Was Always There.
In the finale of Dark Desire Season 1, it was revealed that Esteban had previously brought Dario to seduce Alma because Esteban hated his brother and wanted to ruin his marriage. Esteban was also in love with Alma, but that became a problem with Dario after he developed feelings for the sexy professor.
The show has led us to believe that Dario has been killed by Esteban after he did not follow their plan.
When Esteban discovered that Dario also loved Anna, we were led to believe that the former murdered the latter, just as he had killed Brenda before to cover up their affair.
However, the ending revealed that Dario comes back, ready to cause more trouble for the cast of the series. This opens the door for a sequel.
Season 2 will most likely show Dario's quest to win Alma's heart, but based on what we've seen in the trailer, it looks like Dario is seen being with another woman. Alma will likely be internally-conflicted again as she tries to control her desires for Dario.
We may also find out who actually killed Brenda (or did she commit suicide?).
Dark Desire Season 2 Cast: Who's returning and who are the newcomers?
The Season 2 announcement confirmed that Maite Perroni, María Fernanda Yepes, Regina Pavón, Alejandro Speitzer, Erik Hayser, and Jorge Poza will all return to reprise their roles.
They also confirmed that new characters will join Dark Desire Season 2.
Dark Desire Season 2 Trailer: What teasers and trailers have been revealed so far?
You can watch the English teaser for Dark Desire Season 2 above, but it doesn't reveal new footage from the upcoming season.
The full trailer was also released in January 2022, giving us a preview of Alma's drama with Dario. You can watch the original Spanish version of the trailer below, but you will have to wait for the release of the English version.
Will there be Dark Desire Season 3?
No, Dark Desire will ultimately end in Season 2. In the trailer released in September 2021, Netflix revealed that Season 2 will be the final season, so expect the show to tie up all the loose ends in the new episodes. Will Dario and Alma live happily ever after? Will someone else die before the story ends? We'll find out soon enough.
