Airdate: The Envoys

8 part mystery series centres around miraculous healings in Mexico.

Paramount+ has added 8 part Spanish-language, mystery series The Envoys (Los Enviados).

The cast includes Luis Gerardo Méndez (Narcos: Mexico, Charlie’s Angels), Miguel Ángel Silvestre (Narcos, Sense8), Irene Azuela (Sense8), and Miguel Rodarte (Narcos: Mexico).

Juan José Campanella (The Secret in Their Eyes) serves as showrunner, producer and director.

The Envoys tells the mission of two priests from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, the Vatican team in charge of verifying and studying miracles of potential saints, who are sent to Mexico to verify alleged miraculous healings of another clergyman known for performing them in a mental institution. As soon as they arrive in Mexico City, they receive the news that the priest they are looking for has disappeared without a trace. Their lives and their faith are taken to the limit when they discover a psychiatric colony, located on the suburbs of the town that seems to hide more than one secret: a mystery buried for decades that underlies each inhabitant of the town.

Now screening on Paramount+.

  1. When times get tough what better time is there to have a yarn about revelation, being a Mexican show there should be a lot of scope for Catholic doctrine and discovering miracles, though in reality the Vatican should have been more concerned about treating the ills created by Mexico’s criminal cartels and the resulting social and spiritual decline, but that probably wouldn’t be so interesting as a series I guess.
