Javier Cámara returns as Juan Carrasco in "Venga Juan" for HBO Max
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.

Diego San José, creator and showrunner, said, "We will see Juan Carrasco accomplishing most of his dreams in "Venga Juan", mainly getting his new hair, but there are some things you can never get rid of, in his case, Logroño. His past comes back in the form of old documents involving him in a local corruption case, making his life a complete mess. This season shows the moral and physical corrosion of the character, which will lead him to discover he was a good guy in the past".

Miguel Salvat, executive producer for HBO Max, said: ''I think there are two things we can all agree on with "Venga Juan". First, the undisputed talent of Javier Cámara. Second, it's very healthy for our own mental health to also have a laugh at the attitudes, motivations, morals, and professional ambitions of some members of our political class, whatever their party. We are so happy to have this third season and work with the brilliant team behind it."

Javier Méndez, executive producer, co-director TV and head of Cinema at THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO, said: "'Venga Juan', and its prequels 'Vota Juan' and 'Vamos Juan', are direct heirs of the satirical humour created by Luis García Berlanga and Rafael Azcona, brilliantly updated by Diego San Jose through the character of Juan Carrasco, an IP which now will be one of the titles on HBO Max when it launches in Spain".

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.
