The 8x30” series is created by Diego San José and is produced by 100 Balas (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO) for HBO Max

“Venga Juan” follows on from the acclaimed comedy series Vota Juan (Season 1) and Feroz Award winning “Vamos Juan” (Season 2) with the third instalment finding Juan Carrasco having reached a peak in his career. Thanks to a series of political revolving doors, he has a spectacular new office, is 22 pounds lighter and, most importantly, is no longer bald. 

It all means there is now plenty of room for the things that matter in his life, all except for his wife Paula, his daughter Eva and his former publicity manager Macarena. However, his joy is short-lived as documents from his time spent in Logroño start to implicate Juan in a local corruption scandal.  As he tries to erase his past in Logroño, he soon realizes that his present is the real problem.

The main cast of “Vota Juan” and “Vamos Juan” return to “Venga Juan” led by Javier Cámara as Juan Carrasco; María Pujalte, as Macarena, his loyal publicity manager; Adam Jezierski as his assistant; Joaquín Climent as ruthless Vallejo; Cristóbal Súarez as charismatic Recalde; Yaël Belicha as his wife and Esty Quesada as his daughter. 

Also joining the cast is Coppa Volpi winner, Oscar Martínez (The Distinguished Citizen); Best Actor Goya winner, Manolo Solo (The Fury of a Patient Man, 30 Coins), and Ramón Barea (Rosa’s Wedding).

The writers’ team, led by Diego San José, creator and showrunner of the series, includes Víctor García León, Daniel Castro and Pablo Remón. Joining this season are Diego Soto and Pilar Palomero who will also direct one of the episodes with Víctor García León. Tom Fernández, former writer of previous seasons of the show, will direct two episodes.

Guillermo Farré, Jose Skaf and Miguel Salvat are executive producers for HBO Max. Production services for the series are provided by THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO, with Diego San José, Alejandro Flórez and Javier Méndez serving as executive producers.
