Everything We Know About 'Who Killed Sara?' Season 3
Reviewing the upcoming season 3 from the Netflix hit series "Who Killed Sara?"
This is why discovering the truth will make you wish secrets were kept secret
Late in April, Netflix revealed an exciting and impactful official video for Who Killed Sara? season 2 that captures the buzz and excitement around the binge-worthy series.
The short video surfaced and quickly gathered thousands of views, further enticing a legion of fans already hooked to the sizzling mystery drama series created by Chilean writer José Ignacio “Chascas” Valenzuela and directed by David “Leche” Ruiz, Carlos Bolado, and Poncho Pineda.
I’ve already shared all my insights about Who Killed Sara? (and my answer to the question that’s on everyone’s mind.
If you think the series couldn’t get more suspenseful, then brace yourself because season 2 takes us on a bumpy ride on a quest to solve the riddle through thick fog and more twists and turns than you find on a mountain road.
I've already watched season 2; however, I will only discuss the trailer to stay away from spoilers. Thus, to clear the fog and get to the top safe and sound, let’s start by looking at our truncated roadmap. Netflix synopsis for season two reads:
“Alex Guzman has to face his worst nightmare: his sister Sara’s true personality, whom clearly he never knew at all. At the same time, a buried mystery corpse in his own patio becomes a ticking clock that can make him go back to prison at any time. He has no other choice than to become an investigator and put together all the pieces that will portray Sara’s true and terrible story and her relationship with the Lazcano family.”
This brief rundown sets the tone for the forthcoming season, and Valenzuela seems to be leading us further down the crime fiction road that has Agatha Christie’s name on it.

Teaser Trailer Breakdown
Who Killed Sara? will now follow the leitmotivs we find in detective novels. Alex is the detective who tries to solve the mystery around Sara’s true story and identity and how it relates to the Lazcano’s.
The trailer starts with a scene where Alex confronts the psychiatrist that was apparently treating Sara. He asks:
“Doctor, I need to know who Sara really was?”
This establishes the main line of investigation. Then the video fast-forwards to the next scene where Alex shares with Rodolfo why he is pursuing the investigation.
“I found out things about Sara’s past.”
These “things” are connected to Sara’s secret notebook and the psychotic outbursts she was manifesting, as depicted at the end of the first season and in the trailer.
Afterward, we hear Elisa’s dark omen, and we realize things are going to get hairy, and we’re down for a rollercoaster of escalating dreadful events.
“Sometimes the best we can do is to let things go."
We already know how Alex will follow his instinct and insist on finding the truth. Hence, the series will unravel several new sub-plots.
Sub-plot #1: Marifer and Clara are colluding
We hear Clara say: “Things are going much better than we planned.” Then the camera moves to show a scene where she kisses Chema. Afterward, Marifer replies:
“You’ve done a good job with Chema.”
After watching the first season, we know Marifer is “Diane the Huntress” as she helps Alex on the vendetta against the Lazcano’s. Now, apparently, she controls other pawns on a more extended “game of chess.”
Sub-plot #2: Don César’s skeleton in the closet
Rudolfo screams at his father: “The past always comes back.” We hear the patriarch's thoughts: “If we don’t understand it, it does a lot of damage.” Possibly, Don César has a skeleton in the closet that still haunts him.
Sub-plot #3: What’s Nicandro’s role?
I predicted on my review that Nicandro would play an important role in season two. Netflix now confirmed it in the new trailer when Alex asks Marifer:
“What do you know about Nicandro?”
Marifer knows more about what happened to Nicandro, but she doesn’t seem to share it with Alex. Following the scene sequence, we understand both Sara and Marifer have a deeper connection to him.
Marifer explains: “Sara was more dangerous than we thought.” And we see a woman’s hand (presumably Sara's) with a pocket knife sabotaging the breaks of a motorbike. In the following scene, someone on a motorbike (presumably Nicandro) crashes into a car after the breaks fail to respond.
Sub-plot #4: Who is Sara’s father?
Sara visits her alleged father that seems to be held in a mental health hospital. He says: “I must know if the blood in your veins is like mine.” meaning that she may also suffer from mental health issues.
Sub-plot #5: Bruno is Don César’s son
We know that Sofia isn’t carrying Rodolfo’s son because he cannot father a child. Don César says that to his face: “You weren’t born to be a father.”
Sub-plot #6: Dig two graves
In connection to the omen she cast early on, Elisa quotes Confucius “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.” Meaning that if Alex insists on pursuing a vendetta, he might bring down not only who he hates but also the one he loves and maybe himself.
The closing scenes present new antagonists, and suddenly the Lazcano’s are facing several deadly menaces. Elisa is kidnapped, and Don César lets go of his Donald Trump-style full-metal jacket and makes a desperate plea.
“I must save my daughter, but I can’t do it alone, please, please.”
The second season of Who Killed Sara? premiered Wednesday, May 19. The new trailer reveals several sub-plots within the main overarching narrative:
- Marifer and Clara are colluding?
- Don César’s skeleton in the closet?
- Nicandro’s role?
- Who is Sara’s father?
- Can Bruno be Don César’s son?
- Why dig two graves?
I'm sure many of those questions will remain unanswered at the end of season two. I’ve heard Valenzuela explain how he wrote Sara to cover a three seasons range if Netflix would consider it feasible.
According to the latest data I have available, Who Killed Sara? season two landed first place in 52 countries, made it to the Top 10 in 71 countries. Moreover, it ranked # 1 as Netflix's Top TV Show in the U.S.
Hence, the million-dollar question isn't if we will get a third season, but how long we'll have to wait this time around to finally know all about Who Killed Sara?
