Teresa, Carla, and Lala are their spouses, and all three are members of the notorious Thursday’s Widows Club, where a group of ladies get together once a week to chat.

The group’s sinister familial secrets are known to real estate realtor Mavi Guevara. The truth about what transpired at Los Altos de las Cascadas on December 26th is slowly but surely emerging as these secrets are revealed. There may be some strange plot twists, but at its core, the show is a murder mystery.

To set the stage and mood for the event, the opening scene is very crucial.

Thursday’s Widows: Is it based on a book?

“Las Viudas de los Jueves,” a criminal fiction book written by Claudia Piñeiro and published in 2005 in Argentina, is the basis for the series. For the work, Piñeiro won the esteemed Premio Clarín de Novela in 2005. Miranda France also translated the novel into English, and it was titled “Thursday Night Widows.”

Several key differences persist between the two shows, the most prominent of which is that the action in this one takes place in Mexico and not Argentina. Some parts of the latter have had their names changed, which will be noticeable to fans.

To illustrate the point, one episode has the Guevara sisters—Mavi and Virginia—switching places with one another; Mavi lives in Los Altos de las Cascadas, and Virginia at Cascade Heights Country Club.

Plus, several characters and story issues change in the series compared to the novel. At first, Piñeiro intended for ‘Las Viudas de los Jueves’ to symbolize the prosperous lifestyle of Argentina’s upper middle class in the 1990s, before the country’s financial situation was exacerbated by the 9/11 tragedy in 2001. So, the narrative is really about how social riches are portrayed and how it suddenly vanishes.
