El Talismán (The Talisman) is a telenovela co-produced by Venevision and Univision Studios, starring Blanca Soto and Rafael Novoa as the main protagonists,[2] and Aarón Díaz, Lola Ponce, and Marcela Mar as the main antagonists.[3] Univision had announced that El Talismán would air on the network as part of the 2011–2012 programming schedule,[4][5] and was confirmed to air in 2012 on November 11, 2011.[6] Though 120 episodes were planned to be produced,[7] the episode count was reduced to a total of 98 due to low ratings.

From January 30 to February 3, 2012, Univision aired El Talismán at 8pm central, replacing one hour of Una familia con suerte,[8] and later at 9pm central from February 6 to March 9, 2012.[9] Though El Talismán was seen by 5 million viewers during its premiere day,[10] viewership declined overtime during its prime time airings. As a result, Univision aired El Talismán at 1pm central from March 12[11][12] to June 15, 2012.[13]
