Since its cancellation, majority of the casts moved on to different projects, resulting to major cast changes in season three and four. Production also moved to different filming location since the studio they used is already occupied by another Álex Pina show, Money Heist. Maggie Civantos, the series main character was reduced to a recurring role due to her commitment to her other show, Cable Girls. The show's other main cast lead by Najwa Nimri, Berta Vázquez, María Isabel Díaz Lago, Marta Aledo, Laura Buena and Alba Flores, who also stars in Money Heist, returned as full time main cast members.

The season revolved on the lives of the Saray (Alba Flores) , Rizos (Berta Vázquez), Sole (María Isabel Díaz Lago), Tere (Marta Aledo), Anabel (Inma Cuevas), Antonia (Laura Baena) and Zulema Najwa Nimri as they adopt to the new environment of Cruz del Norte. After being transferred to the new prison due to over crowding in Cruz del Sur, the inmates were forced to unite and put aside their differences towards each other as they encounter inmates and prison officials of Cruz del Norte. As they arrived to their new home, they immediately felt the dark aura surrounding the place, with prison guards having actual guns waiting on their arrival. New characters were introduced such as a group of Chinese inmates who they immediately knew are the ones who are in control of the prison with Macarena (Maggie Civantos) as their first victim. [4]

The show and cast were nominated in several award giving bodies including a Best Actress nomination for Alba Flores and Best Director nominations for Jesus Colmenar, Sandra Gallego, David Molina Encinas, Jesus Rodrigo in Premios Iris; Best Actress nominations for Najwa Nimri in Feroz Awards, Fotogramas de Plata, The Platino Awards for Iberoamerican Cinema and in Premios MiM among others.
