The fifth season of "El Señor de los Cielos" has not started airing, but Telemundo has officially made the announcement that they are working on the sixth installment of the hit telenovela. Starring Rafael Amaya, Fernanda Castillo, Carmen Aub and Mariana Seoane, the sixth season follows Aurelio Casillas as he has recovered all the fortune he lost and finally feels the need to retire.

It will not be easy for Casilloas as it's payback time, the hatred he sowed since he sold his soul to the demon of drug trafficking is now knocking at his door with the face and blood of the many innocent people he destroyed. Aurelio will understand that his riches are an illusion and that after having been the great hunter he was, he will now become the prey. The women he mistreated, the men he betrayed, the political puppets he put in power, and even his own children will turn against him. Has the time come for Aurelio to pay for his sins?

During the Telemundo Upfront presentation, the network also announced the return of Kate del Castillo to the network as Teresa Mendoza in a sequel to "La Reina del Sur." Telemundo’s worldwide success picks up with the return of Teresa Mendoza (Kate del Castillo), who became one of the largest drug traffickers in Spain – La Reina del Sur (Queen of the South). Eight years after disappearing without a trace and living a peaceful, idyllic life in the Italian countryside, Teresa’s past finally catches up with her. She is forced to return to Mexico and the dangerous world of drug trafficking.

Señora Acero, La Coyote (The Acero Dynasty) was also mentioned to return for its fourth season starring Carolina Miranda, Jorge Zarate, Gaby Espino and Luis Ernesto Franco. Vicenta Acero, the most feared and notorious “Coyote” on the U.S.-Mexican border, now faces more enemies, both inside and outside the law, who seek revenge and are willing to do anything to destroy the Acero dynasty.

Sin Senos Si Hay Paraiso (Without Breasts There Is Paradise) stars Carmen Villalobos, Fabian Rios, Catherine Siachoque, Majida Issa and Carolina Gaitan. Season two picks up after older Catalina (Carmen Villalobos), who everyone believed to be dead for many years, returns.
