Since its premiere in May 2019, Netflix’s Spanish original, ‘High Seas,’ has been captivating viewers with its intriguing premise, which centers on two sisters, Eva and Carolina Villanueva, who become embroiled in a mysterious murder aboard the luxury ocean liner, Bárbara de Braganza. Ramon Campos and Gema R. Neira have devised a murder mystery series in the vein of Agatha Christie.
Its complex plot, fascinating characters, captivating performances by the excellent ensemble, period costumes, and elaborate production design have earned it praise from reviewers and viewers over the years. The third season of ‘High Seas’ has been binge-watched by fans, who are now wondering: Will there be a season 4? Everything you need to know is listed below.
High Seas Season 4 Renewal Status
The compelling plot and rapid release schedule of the first two seasons contributed to the show’s popularity. The first two seasons were shot simultaneously, allowing for a release window that was just a few months apart. In the third season, the plot expanded beyond the ship. Bamb Producciones, the show’s creators, said at the time that Seasons 3 and 4 will be shown, likely in the same format as Seasons 1 and 2. However, plans for a fourth season were scrapped in 2020.
Both this and another popular Spanish drama on the streaming service, The Cable Girls, had their fourth seasons terminated in 2020. One theory puts the blame on Netflix’s sluggish marketing efforts. The cancellation of season four may be directly attributable to the pandemic as well. While declining ratings may have been a contributing factor to the show’s cancellation after three seasons, that was never officially stated.
Why has Netflix canceled the show?
Numerous indicators point to the inevitable end of the show. To begin, people had different reactions to it. There was a 4/5 reaction on Rotten Tomatoes and a 6.8/10 score on IMDb. As a result, it is plausible that this factor contributed to the decision to end the program. Second, the show’s production was suspended because of the COVID outbreak. The manufacturing launch date was set for 2020. However, it had to be delayed because of the pandemic.
At the time, Netflix was canceling a number of its own shows. According to Cindy Holland, a former vice president at Netflix, the cancellation was decided on a cost-benefit analysis. Unfortunately, the show did not boost ratings for the series. Since it failed to interest a significant number of viewers, Netflix decided to cancel production.
About High Seas
The time period of this tale is the ’40s. In High Seas, a group of people travel from Spain to Brazil across the Atlantic Ocean. The pilot episode began with the murder of an unnamed passenger who was not included on the passenger manifest. Who committed this crime and why remains unknown.
Fans of the Spanish language and those who can’t get enough of a good mystery will like this show, which has plot aspects reminiscent of Agatha Christie’s novels. As a throwback TV program, the costumes, soundtrack, and decor are all top-notch.

High Seas Season 4 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 3 opens with Eva and Carolina boarding the Bárbara de Braganza for a trip to Mexico. A Brazilian agent named Fabio approaches Eva and asks for her assistance in locating a guy who is allegedly transporting a dangerous chemical weapon on board. The deaths begin piling up aboard the ship as Eva and Fabio dig further into the case, and the focus of suspicion turns on the two detectives. As the virus quickly spreads throughout the ship, chaos ensues in the final act. The lives of numerous people are spared thanks to Eva, Nicholas, and Fabio’s investigation. Nicholas suffers many knife wounds and tragically dies.

We may see Eva finally satisfy her need for uncovering mysteries if she and Carolina get mixed up in another mystery during the fourth season.
