Telenovelas fans, gather! The telenovela El Señor de los Cielos premiered on Telemundo in 2013 and instantly became a broadcast favorite, but mostly among Latin audiences. Now, thanks to streaming platforms slowly taking over entertainment, the telenovela is capturing more attention as episodes stream on Peacock. Have you been watching El Señor de los Cielos 8 and are wondering how many episodes will be featured this season?
El Señor de los Cielos has been a telenovela favorite for almost a decade, so many of us have been missing out! But just because we are late to the game doesn’t mean we can’t catch up! Be warned, though, this is going tobe one long binge-watch. For starters, there’s a new episode every day, but you can always stream these on Peacock if you are not able to tune in when El Señor de lo Cielos airs.
How many episodes are in El Señor de los Cielos 8?
At the time of this writing, an official episode total is not known for El Señor de los Cielos 8. However, we do have a pretty good idea by looking at the episode count from other seasons.
The numbers range from 74 to 104 episodes. The first season has been the shortest one at 74 episodes, and season 3 features 104 episodes. Season 6 includes 99 episodes, and season 7 comes in at 75 episodes, so season 8 can be anything in between or more, considering the last season finished in January 2020. Now that audiences can stream El Señor de los Cielos 8 (and all seasons before it) on Peacock, we believe the season will include at least 80 episodes. As soon as we learn more, we’ll update this post!
