'Yago' Univision Telenovela
The new Univision primetime telenovela stars Iván Sánchez as a man seeking vengeance. Televisa

Univision is gearing up for the premiere of their new telenovela, "Yago." This Televisa production stars Iván Sánchez ("Lo Imperdonable"), Gaby De La Garza ("Las Aparicio"), Flavio Medina ("Yo No Creo En Los Hombres"), Pablo Valentín ("Antes Muerta Que Lichita"), Ximena Romo ("El Color De La Pasión"), Jade Fraser ("Hasta El Fin Del Mundo"), Sophie Alexander Katz ("Para Volver A Amar"), Patricio Castillo ("Mentir Para Vivir") and many more. "Yago" is loosely based on "The Count Of Monte Cristo" about a man wrongfully accused of a crime that he didn't commit. He is then left for dead, but returns with a new identity to take revenge on those people that did him wrong.

The three main characters of "Yago" are Omar who becomes Yago, played by Sánchez, Sara as the woman between two men played by De La Garza and the sketchy friend Lucio played by Medina. A trailer for the series was just released and we learned even more from this production. Find out what else we know about "Yago" and don't miss the premiere episode on Monday, May 2 starting at 9pm ET/PT on Univision.
