Telemundo unveiled the official cast for the upcoming new Super Series Malverde: El Santo Patrón (Malverde: The Patron Saint).

Starring Pedro Fernández (Hasta que el Dinero nos Separe, El Ganador) in the role of Malverde, the internationally renowned cast also includes Carolina Miranda (Señora Acero, Claramente) and Mark Tacher (La Reina del Sur 2, Papá a toda Madre); alongside the stellar participation of Alejandro Nones (Amar a Muerte, La Piloto); Luis Felipe Tovar (El Recluso, The Mexican) and Isabella Castillo (El Señor de los Cielos, El Recluso).

The Super Series, the network’s first series-produced in a period setting, is slated to premiere later this year.

Malverde: El Santo Patrón is a dramatic representation of the life of this extraordinary character and is undoubtedly one of our greatest productions to date, produced with exceptional attention to detail to accurately recreate the true way of life in late-nineteenth-century Mexico,” said Marcos Santana, president, Telemundo Global Studios. “We are thrilled to have Pedro back on the Telemundo screen as he joins the stellar cast to bring this legendary story to life for our Hispanic audiences across the U.S.”

Inspired by a true story, Malverde: El Santo Patrón will tell the truth behind the legendary Mexican character. The action-packed Super Series, which will begin production later this month in Mexico, relates the story of a boy, born in Sinaloa, Mexico in 1870, who will ultimately become a legendary figure, almost a religious icon, protector of the people, the innocent as well as the poor and dispossessed, and even narcos and criminals.
