Spanish-Language Series ‘The Envoys’ to Premiere on Paramount+ Jan. 20

Paramount+ will premiere the Spanish-language series “The Envoys” (“Los Enviados”) in the United States Jan. 20.

All eight episodes will be available to binge exclusively on Paramount+.

The original series stars Luis Gerardo Méndez (“Narcos: Mexico,” Charlie’s Angels), Miguel Ángel Silvestre (“Narcos,” “Sense8”), Irene Azuela (“Sense8”), and Miguel Rodarte (“Narcos: Mexico”). Oscar winner Juan José Campanella (The Secret in Their Eyes) serves as showrunner, producer and director. 

“The Envoys” follows two priests from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, the Vatican team in charge of verifying and studying miracles of potential saints, who are sent to Mexico to verify alleged miraculous healings of another clergyman known for performing them in a mental institution. As soon as they arrive in Mexico City, they receive the news that the priest they are looking for has disappeared without a trace. Their lives and their faith are taken to the limit when they discover a psychiatric colony, located on the suburbs of the town, that seems to hide more than one secret: a mystery buried for decades that underlies each inhabitant of the town. Méndez stars as Pedro Salinas, a methodical priest who never breaks the rules and believes in routine, whose greatest desire is to be able to prove his own miracle. Silvestre plays Salinas’s companion and fellow priest Simón Antequera, who has great ambitions within the church and, unlike Salinas, is intuitive and always offers a different point of view. Cortés, played by Irene Azuela, will be a key piece in the search for the truth as she witnessed the first two miracles attributed to the clergyman. Cortés takes an active role in finding the location of the man the priests are looking for, whom she considers a brother.

“It’s a dream come true for ‘Los Enviados’ to premiere outside of Spanish-speaking countries for global audiences on Paramount+,” Campanella said in a statement. “It’s the perfect place to showcase the series and the effort of everyone involved in this project, just as it deserves.”

“I feel honored to carry out this project under the gaze of a director like Campanella and with colleagues like Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Irene Azuela,” Méndez said in a statement.

“I’m very proud of working for VIS in a production of such dimensions. I’m very happy to belong to this project and that this content is part of Paramount+,” Silvestre said in a statement.

“Working with Juan José Campanella was a delight. His knowledge is tremendous, and I’m sure the audience will want to see the story from beginning to end,” Azuela said in a statement.

The series will also be available on Paramount+ in Australia, Canada and the Nordics on Jan. 20.
