Everything We Know About Netflix's 'Daughter From Another Mother' Season 2
The Mexican comedy left more than a few cliffhangers, so thankfully another season is on the way.
Based around the switched-at-birth premise that's become oddly familiar in sitcom punchlines and Freeform dramas, the Mexican Netflix original Daughter From Another Mother (a.k.a. Madre Solo Hay Dos) could have really missed. Instead, the series created by Carolina Rivera (Jane the Virgin, Devious Maids) was a pleasant surprise when it premiered in January 2021. Following the wildly different career woman Ana (Ludwika Paleta) and free-spirited college student Mariana (Paulina Goto), the two discover four months after giving birth that they took home the other's newborn and bring their families together to raise under one household. It features all of the makings of a super-watchable show with its humor, influx of telenovela-inspired drama, and lovable characters (including some pretty adorable babies).
Thankfully, Netflix renewed the Spanish-language series shortly after Season 1 aired—which made sense, considering what a hit it was across the globe and how the finale begged for more answers. Given all of those cliffhangers, we're breaking down everything we know about Season 2 of Daughter From Another Mother.
When will Season 2 of Daughter From Another Mother premiere?
Just in time for Christmas! Netflix announced in November 2021 that Season 2 will hit streaming on Friday, December 24. The new installment comes less than a year after the first season, which premiered on Netflix in January 2021, but it should make for a lovely family binge-watch around the holidays.
Is there a trailer for Daughter From Another Mother Season 2?
Oh, baby! There is! Netflix dropped a first look about a month out from the Season 2 release date in November 2021. It opens by showing how uncomfortable things are in Ana's household, now that Mariana is no longer in her life. Based on the clip, it looks like over the course of the season the two will work on remedying their relationship, while still tackling parenthood, advances in their careers, and some saucy new romances, for good measure.
Who in the cast will be back?
While nothing is confirmed, just about everybody should be back. Ana and Mariana, played by Ludwika Paleta and Paulina Goto respectively, are at the helm of the show, so you can count on them to step back into their motherly roles. Ana's son Rodrigo (Emilio Beltrán Ulrich) and daughter Ceci (Dalexa Meneces) are also givens.
Despite all of the melodrama swirling around him, Ana's husband Juan Carlos (Martín Altomaro) should also return, as well as Liz Gallardo who plays Mariana's mother, Teresa. Even though their relationship is also on the rocks, the father of Mariana's daughter, Pablo (Javier Ponce), will likely be back, too, and presumably Cynthia (Elena del Río) now that they're an item. It also seems like Oka Giner's Elena has some feelings that went unsaid in terms of her relationship with Mariana, so we could see more of her, too.
As for the true stars of the show, babies Regina and Valentina, who are played by scene stealers Lena Morales and Melissa Salgado: We'll probably be seeing more of their sweet faces. It is possible, though, the show could find new child actors that resemble them, considering they'll have grown up a great deal before production resumes again. It seems likely that they'll want to keep these little starlets around, though. (Time jumps are pretty common in shows with children, anyway.)
What will Daughter From Another Mother Season 2 be about?
It's hard to believe there's ever been a baptism as melodramatic as the one that went down in the season finale of Daughter From Another Mother. More than a few secrets came to light at the occasion, and inevitably tore a handful of relationships apart. Ana finally confirmed her husband Juan Carlos had been cheating on her with Mariana's mother, Teresa, and because she realized that Mariana knew, she kicked her out of the house. Now that Mariana is out on her own—after attempting to rekindle things with Pablo and stay with him, but failed, seeing that he'd moved on—the next season will likely follow wherever she went, and how she's attempting to salvage her relationship not only with Ana but Valentina, who she had to leave behind.
In terms of Ana, of course she'll have to deal with either mending her marriage or, more likely, adjusting to being a single mother, as well as maybe letting Mariana back into her life. Season 2 seems as though it'll also explore whatever the results of her biopsy were—that's definitely one cliffhanger fans can't get over. The series could take an even sadder turn, or perhaps it'll make her want to focus on the present and the people in her life even more so.
Whatever happens, there's more to explore in terms of sexuality on the show, now that Mariana is more accepting of her identity, and motherhood, obviously.
