Netflix’s ‘Invisible City’ adapts and modernizes Brazilian folklore effortlessly in the hyped world of pop culture. Similar to ‘Ragnarok’, which beautifully revives Norse mythology, ‘Invisible City’ shows promise and enticingly draws viewers to its intriguing premise. The show opens theatrically with a flashback in which two men trek through a rainforest in the dark. One of them tries to shoot a bird for playful entertainment, but is knocked down by a flaming spear thrown by a creature called the Curupira, characterized by a flaming head and backward-facing feet. The beast is popular in Brazilian mythology that emerged as something new to the American public, who were amazed and nervous by its grotesque appearance. The first season turned out to be a fine mix of recognizable style figures and a deep dive into Brazilian culture. Here’s everything we know about Season 2 of ‘Invisible City’.

Invisible City Season 2 plot: what can it be about?
Invisible City follows the life of Eric, an environmental cop who tries to track down his wife’s killer. Being a folklorist, it’s no surprise that he’s soon drawn into a world where mythical creatures exist. He also investigates a strange underground society interested in a pink river dolphin being swept off the shore. He soon discovers all the dark secrets of the place, but knows far too much to get through without any threat to his life. Sure enough, he is struck by the curse of the Dry Body that persuades him to take his own life in the first season finale.
If the show is renewed, it will be interesting to witness the developments surrounding a cursed Eric, who apparently did not die. The Curupira’s story could also get some attention, along with perhaps new creatures that will engage viewers in another exploratory season.
