Other than the foregoing details, the new Netflix star hasn’t revealed much about her life prior to acting.

The same year, she would gain a breakthrough role as Juana Bautista in Netflix’s sleeping hit thriller show, The Five Juanas. In the series, Engberg plays one of the leads alongside other famed TV actresses such as Oka Giner, Zuria Vega, Juana Arias, and Renata Notni.

The Latino star admits that she had always thought of her as a bad student (academically), but in acting, she found that she had always wanted to learn more.

The Mayan star admits there was a lot of laughter on set. And that the five actresses love each other so much outside the project as well.

Is Sofia Engberg Starrer The Five Juanas Really Worth The Hype? 

Defying expectations, The Revenge Of The Juanas reportedly is crawling up to become the most viewed on Netflix.

Flix Patrol reports the Mexican thriller series has already reached number five of the most-watched shows. And that’s only 10 days after its premiere, not only in Spanish-speaking countries.

In fact, as per some analysts, the October 2021 release female-led show is already on the verge to dethrone Netflix’s historically successful original, The Squid Game.

What The Show Is Really About? What Is Sofia Engberg’s Role?

The Five Juanas tells the story of five women who discover that they are daughters of the same man. They find out about the relationship through a birthmark; that each of them has on their butt. Additionally, together, they unravel some darkest mysteries all of which are one way or the other connected to each one of the sisters.

It is also the remake of the 1997 telenovelas of the same name.

As mentioned, Sofia portrays the character of a Mayan origin who has the supernatural force, and thanks to that she can see unique things.

Will There Be A Second Season Of The Five Juanas?

Netflix originally ordered only a single season of The Five Juanas. And as of this writing, it’s rather still too early for the streaming giant to pull the trigger on a second season just yet. There typically will be a wait of 1-3 months before the virtual entertainment company comes with a conclusive fate of the series.

On the other hand, most Spanish language sources have already claimed that a second season is on the cards but none had any firm plans from the showrunners or cast quoted.

Also, these sorts of franchises are difficult for Netflix to just drop and move on. Although it had a very slow start on Netflix’s top 10s, it slowly build up around the world on the top 10s. The series peaked at the number 4 biggest show on Netflix on October 15th, 2021

Does Engberg Have A Boyfriend? 

All those years of Sofia on socials yet the actor hasn’t once mentioned her romantic aspects much less her partner. The Revenge of The Juanas star is surely a gorgeous bombshell. She, however, is nowhere to be seen talking about her intimate subjects.

For what it’s worth, the Mexican star could be very much single and might be rather choosing to stand on her own for the time being. Also, Sofia doesn’t seem to have any plans to get married. However, we hope she finds a perfect partner and husband for herself soon.
