Synopsis and chapters of The Mosquito Coast

The series was released on April 30, 2021 , although as we mentioned before, it was after a long wait after its announcement years ago. Apple, like many other platforms, does not indicate the number of viewers that the series has followed, although based on the criticism of industry insiders and viewer reviews in various forums, we could say that it has had a good reception since its premiere.

As we indicated at the beginning, the series is based on the homonymous novel written by Paul Theroux and it is the second adaptation that is made after the 80s film starring Harrison Ford, although with its own elements introduced for the series. The story itself revolves around the fictional inventor Allie Fox, a charismatic character with deep-rooted ideals that make him always be against corruption and bad practices in general.

Precisely those principles make Allie have to flee the united states as a result of a problem in which he has been involved. The very government of the country is looking for him and in his flight he decides to go accompanied by his wife and children on a journey through Mexico that will be anything but peaceful. A series that mixes thriller with drama and that, at least in our opinion, goes from less to more offering more and more hook to the plot.

Main characters and actors

Justin Theroux He leads the cast of the series and it is no coincidence that he is the nephew of Paul Theroux, who originally wrote the novel on which the series is based. His facet as an actor has allowed him to participate in some productions such as Inland Empire or the series The Leftovers, although he stood out more behind the scenes as a screenwriter in major productions such as Iron Man 2. In this series he plays Allie Fox , the family man and main character who makes his family have to follow him in his flight from the United States.

Melissa George interprets Margot Allie's wife. The actress became known at the beginning of the 90s for her character Angel Brooks in the series Home and Away, adding numerous roles in her career in films and other series such as Grey's Anatomy. Although without a doubt her greatest recognition came from series such as Alias ​​or The Slap.

Logan Polish Y Gabriel Bateman they play in the series ignoble Y Charlie respectively, the children of the Fox couple who also accompany them on the adventure along the Mosquito Coast. These actors, despite their youth, have several appearances in movies and series behind them. Logan participated in The Astronaut Farmer when she was very young, while Gabriel, despite being younger than her, treasures a few episodic roles in some series such as Grey's Anatomy or films such as Annabelle.

Will there be season 2 with new episodes?

When the broadcast of the first season had not even finished, Apple gave the green light to the producer of the series to create a second season. At the time of publishing this article, more information is unknown about when it will be shot, when it will be released, which characters will participate and how the plot will continue. Although according to the way of ending the last chapter of the first, it is clear that the writers intended to continue the story at some point.

If we stick to what Apple TV + has done with other series on its platform, we could intuit that this season would premiere at least in 2022. And we say this at least due to the lack of information that we mentioned before. In 2021 it is ruled out for not being shot and for how risky it would be to finish production in such a short time, while in 2022 it seems more feasible, although it will also depend on other premieres that the platform wants to broadcast in that year and to which one it gives greater relevance.
