Apple has announced the renewal of comedy series 'Acapulco' for season three.

Following its globally acclaimed second season, the hit Apple Original comedy series starring and executive produced by Emmy and SAG Award winner Eugenio Derbez, has been picked up for a 10-episode third season, set to go into production this spring.

"We at 3Pas Studios are thankful to Apple TV+, the perfect home for 'Acapulco,' along with our production partner Lionsgate, filmmakers and cast and crew," said star and executive producer Eugenio Derbez. "We have always believed that the stories we tell about our communities and cultures can resonate with global audiences, so crank up the AC, it's about to get a lot hotter at Las Colinas Resort."


"We've seen an overwhelming response from audiences all over the world who have fallen in love with 'Acapulco,'" said Morgan Wandell, head of international programming for Apple TV+. "Eugenio, Austin, Ben, Eric, Kim and the talented cast and crew behind 'Acapulco' have created a feel-good show that has a lot of heart, emotion and laughs, and we can't wait to bring even more of that into season three."

In season three of "Acapulco," it's a time of reconciling past mistakes and exciting new beginnings. In our present story, older Máximo (Eugenio Derbez) finds himself returning to a Las Colinas he no longer recognizes. While in 1985, younger Maximo continues his climb up the ladder of success while potentially jeopardizing all the relationships he's worked so hard to build.

The upcoming third season will be showrun by Sam Laybourne ("Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist," "Black-ish"). In addition to Derbez, the "Acapulco" ensemble cast returning includes Enrique Arrizon (Máximo Gallardo), Fernando Carsa (Memo), Damián Alcázar (Don Pablo), Camila Perez (Julia), Chord Overstreet (Chad), Vanessa Bauche (Nora), Regina Reynoso (Sara), Raphael Alejandro (Hugo), Jessica Collins (Diane), Rafael Cebrián (Hector), Carlos Corona (Esteban) and Regina Orozco (Lupe).

Hailing from Lionsgate Television, "Acapulco" is inspired by 3Pas Studios and Pantelion Films' box office hit "How to Be A Latin Lover," and is produced for Apple by Lionsgate Television, 3Pas Studios, Zihuatanejo Productions and The Tannenbaum Company. The series is created by Austin Winsberg, Eduardo Cisneros and Jason Shuman. Winsberg ("Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist") also serves as executive producer on the project. Jay Karas ("Abbott Elementary," "Ghosts") serves as an executive producer and director. In addition to starring in the series, Derbez serves as executive producer alongside Ben Odell and co-executive producer Sonia Almanza Gambaro on behalf of 3Pas Studios. Eric and Kim Tannenbaum executive produce along with Jason Wang on behalf of The Tannenbaum Company.
