HBO LATINO’S “SR. ÁVILA” RETURNS FOR A THIRD SEASON WITH A SIMULTANEOUS PREMIERE ON HBO NOW AND HBO LATIN AMERICA ON JULY 24!
New York, NY – May 25, 2016 – HBO Latino announced the premiere date for the third season of the acclaimed series, Sr. Ávila, on Sunday, July 24 at 9 PM, with a real-time digital premiere on HBO NOW, HBO GO and HBO On Demand. The series will be aired on Mondays at 10 PM ET on HBO Latino. The hit dramatic series, starring Tony Dalton, tells the story of the hit man Ávila and the double life he leads to deal with his personal demons. Every season of Sr. Ávila is available on all HBO digital platforms.
Season 3 consists of 10 episodes of one hour each and will return with Ávila’s career on the rise as he takes on a new role as Lord of Lords, after getting rid of his predecessor—the priest who was his guide and confidant for years. When Dr. Duarte, father of the previously murdered Detective Duarte, reaches out to Ávila demanding to collaborate with him in the hopes of finding answers regarding the death of his daughter, a series of events will reveal a new plot of crime and corruption that involves undercover members of the government and the police. Soon, Sr. Ávila will realize that keeping his new job is going to be more challenging than the road that brought him there.
Those close to Ávila will also have to deal with new characters this season. Iván, both his advisor and right-hand man, will now have to compete over Ávila’s attention with Linares, former advisor to the Lord of Lords who now must serve Ávila. Ana, still an employee at the funeral home and accomplice to the business with Iván and Ávila, will confront her mom, Arcelia, and the secrets they keep regarding their past. As for Detective Sánchez, still recovering from the murder of his colleague, he is due to return to work with a new partner, the Vulture, with whom he shares more than likes and dislikes.
Filmed entirely in various locations in Mexico City, Sr. Ávila was created under the executive production of Luis F. Peraza, Roberto Ríos and Paul Drago on behalf of HBO Latin America Originals, along with Fernando Rovzar, Billy Rovzar and Alexis Fridman from the production company Lemon Films. Directed by Fernando Rovzar, alongside J.M. Cravioto, the script was written by Walter and Marcelo Slavich, who also co-wrote the HBO Latin America hit original series Epitafios.
