Luis Merlo confirms that the news of José Luis Gil is final and there is no solution

Luis Merlo confirmed a few weeks ago that José Luis Gil will not be present in the new season of The one that approaches. The performer is still recovering from a stroke he suffered in November 2021. Of course, all his cast mates are waiting for him with open arms.

They are confident that he will rejoin the group as soon as possible, although at the moment they do not want to advance the date of his return. In any case, his colleagues have been waiting a lot for him during this last year.

One of them was Merlo, with whom he had a special rapport, as could be seen in the last broadcasts. They shared many scenes together after the makers of the series made them share a flat.

The production will premiere the new episodes in a matter of weeks. There will be a few casualties, but also new faces in addition to a new development. They will leave behind the 'Mirador de Montepinar' to settle in 'Contuberni 49'.

Although Gil will not be present, he will be very present in each of the episodes that are broadcast. And it is that he will be in charge of putting the voice in each chapter of season 13 in the header. This is something completely new, since until now the different actors were rotating.

So, even if you can't see him, at least we'll hear the performer at the beginning of each chapter. It will be from next November 18 a Amazon Prime Video.
