Sintonia Season 3 Updates: The upcoming Brazilian crime teen series ‘Sintonia’ is narrated by three friends Doni, Rita, and Nando. From childhood, they have been together. The series presents an interconnected story of music, religion, and drug trafficking involving those three as they live life in São Paulo’s peripheral neighborhood.
The criminal organization named Primeiro Comando da Capital or PCC is featured in the series though the name does not get mentioned in the first season. The way the organization works is reflected in the series as criminals are seen to debate under an abandoned shed.
In the roles of Nando, Rita, and Doni we see Christian Malheiros, Bruna Mascarenhas, and Jottapê respectively.
The series is produced by Losbragas, the company which also produced ‘Samantha!’, the comedy series. At first director, Kondzilla had an idea to make a short film that will center on three young teenagers wishing to buy costly sneakers. Gradually the short film idea turned into the project of a tv series.
The first season of the series premiered in 2019 on Netflix and the second season concluded on October 27, 2021. The newest season is announced which will presumably release at the end of 2022 or within the middle of 2023.
