Metástasis (meaning "metastasis" in Spanish) is the Colombian, Spanish-language shot-for-shot remake of the U.S. crime drama Breaking Bad.


After several days of speculation fueled by Univision,[2] on March 13, 2013, Sony confirmed that it would be making a Spanish-language remake of Breaking Bad.[3]

Sony Entertainment Television (Latin America) is working with Colombian producer Teleset on the series, which is set in Bogotá, Colombia and its surroundings[1] and consists of 62 50-minute-long episodes. The directors are Andy Baiz and Andrés Biermann.[4]


The series stars Diego Trujillo as Walter Blanco (Walter White) and Roberto Urbina(es) as José Miguel Rosas (Jesse Pinkman), alongside Sandra Reyes(es) as Cielo Blanco (Skyler White) and Julián Arango as Henry Navarro (Hank Schrader).[3][5] The equivalent of Saul Goodman is named Saúl Bueno.[6] Mexican actor Damián Alcázar will play the character of Tuco Salamanca.[1]


As with many Latin American dramas, Metástasis is stripped in a telenovela format in which all of the episodes are aired daily over the course of less than a year.

The series has also been sold in Chile, Peru, and Costa Rica. In addition to local broadcasts, the Fox Latin America satellite channel will transmit the series across Latin America.[8]
