High Seas (Spanish: Alta Mar) is a Spanish mystery series released on Netflix in May 2019. The program is set aboard a luxury ocean liner. It stars Ivana Baquero, Alejandra Onieva, Jon Kortajarena, Eloy Azorín, Chiqui Fernández, Tamar Novas, Daniel Lundh, Natalia Rodríguez, Laura Prats, Ignacio Montes, Begoña Vargas, and Manuela Vellés. The show was renewed for a second season in June 2019 and was released on November 22, 2019.[1] Bambú Producciones is the production company behind the series. Actor Jon Kortajarena, who portrays character Nicolás Vázquez, confirmed season three of the show on his official Instagram page on November 6, 2019.[2] A planned fourth season was cancelled by Netflix in mid-2020.[3]

Plot[edit]

Following the death of their father, sisters Eva and Carolina Villanueva travel on the ocean liner, Bárbara de Braganza (formerly Covadonga), en route from Spain to Brazil in the late 1940s. They become embroiled in investigating mysterious on-board deaths, a secret microfilm, and hidden Nazi gold. The series starts with a mysterious woman called Luisa asking for help from the sisters, who smuggle her on board. Later Luisa is apparently thrown off the ship into the sea, and thus the investigation starts. It seems to finish quickly when someone confesses but their suicide in confinement is suspicious. Eventually the sisters' father proves to be alive, having been thought dead for the past two years. Complications continue as the sisters must choose who to believe – their father or their uncle – concerning the sending of people to concentration camps in trucks belonging to the family business. The true culprit is finally apprehended and Carolina gets married. But at the end of the first season, they receive a distress signal from a boat asking for help, and alter course to intercept.
