Netflix just announced that they're adapting One Hundred Years of Solitude into a 16 episode series, to be launched some time later this year.

For those not familiar with the original work, "Cien años de soledad" was the novel that brought international fame and success to Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez, who later went on to win the 1982 Nobel Prize in literature. The book is a sweeping multi-generational tale that follows the Buendía family in the fictional town of Macondo. As they navigate love, war, politics, and the supernatural, it explores themes of solitude, fate, and the cyclical nature of history. García Márquez's magical realism creates a vivid world where reality and myth intertwine, inviting readers to ponder the complexities of human existence and the relentless march of time.

Directed by Laura Mora and Alex García López, One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of the most ambitious productions in Latin America to date: brought to life by the most talented artists from Colombia, filmed entirely in Spanish, and shot in Colombia with the support of Gabriel García Márquez's family.

We've seen the official teaser and it sure looks promising. Check it out here below!
