100 Years of Solitude coming to Netflix is coming to Netflix as a TV series. This novel is the magnum opus of the Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez. Before, Garcia Marquez was given the opportunity to put this into a movie, but he declined. His son decided to turn this book into a television series years after his passing in 2014. A TV series can do a novel that chronicles several generations of a family better justice. Such a rich lore cannot be adequately conveyed in an hour and a half long film.
One of the greatest works of literature ever written is 100 Years of Solitude. More than 46 different languages have versions of the book. In 1967, the book was first written in Spanish. It has sold more than 50 million copies. I once read a list of the top ten books that couldn’t be made into movies. The Buendia family’s century-long lineage is covered in detail in this book.
100 Years of Solitude announcement
We don’t have a cast announcement yet so I have no idea if we will have a Spanish Speaking cast or an English speaking cast. We May not get the latter because the whole series will be filmed in Colombia.
Whenever there is a list of the greatest fictional books of all times, 100 Years of Solitude always makes the list. People who read the book have nothing but praises of this work. Now people who are lazy to read and fans of the book can watch this story in a more visual form of entertainment.
