Iván Sánchez is the star of "Yago," the telenovela that Univision airs nightly in primetime.

Pepillo Origel confirmed on his column that the Carmen Armendáriz-production finished rolling on location last week and would conclude filming in studio this week.

The series has struggled to keep steady ratings on the Spanish-language network, and it was recently confirmed that it would be moving to sister network UniMás.

On Monday, June 27, "Yago" will be shipped off and vanish to the obscure 12 midnight time slot. Thank goodness fans live in an era of DVRs and will continue to enjoy it until the finale, which is airing in the coming months.

"Yago" tells the story of Omar Guerrero, a simple young man living in a middle-class neighborhood next to his inseparable best friends Abel (Pablo Valentin) and Lucio (Flavio Medina).

Omar’s life changes dramatically when Sara (Gabriela de la Garza) moves into the neighborhood with her father Damián (Manuel Ojeda) and her sister Ámbar (Ximena Romo).

Damián is a conman who is about to pull off the perfect heist on the big casino in the city. Unable to do it alone, he convinces Lucio, Abel and his daughter Sara to involve Omar. Even though Sara has fallen in love with Omar, her father manipulates her to go through with the plan.

During the heist, a guard is murdered and Omar is framed for both crimes and is sentenced to sixty year in prison. While in prison, Omar meets Fidel Yampolski (Patricio Castillo), an old and powerful mafia boss who becomes his mentor.

After a prison riot burns the prison down, the two men plot an ingenious revenge. Fidel helps Omar get a new face and a new identity: Yago. Twelve years later, Yago has returned to execute his revenge upon the three people who betrayed him. But will love be stronger than his hunger for vengeance?
