Full of suspense and puzzles, here are a few reasons not to miss out on this project coming to hbo max with the weekly release of the episodes of the series.


Known for its typical climate, Paranapiacaba (SP), in addition to serving as inspiration for the series, was also the city chosen for the thriller shoots. Almost every day, from noon, the fog begins to fall and after two in the afternoon it is so thick that it is almost impossible to see anything a few meters away. This is also the setting for the fictional Valle Sereno, which in its mist hides many secrets.


In addition to the mysterious weather provided by the fog, the city also has a different architecture, with buildings built by the British in 1867 and maintained to this day. Some abandoned buildings and local stories still help build the production’s atmosphere of mystery. In addition, the Victorian gothic style of the costumes completes the story like no other.


When they took refuge in Valle Sereno, the young people could not imagine that this was a cursed place, with no way out and no communication with the rest of the world, where the pointers of the clock stopped moving. As they try to understand what really happened and what keeps them in this mystery -something magical, with supernatural phenomena-, they will find themselves in the middle of a dark secret that has remained hidden for more than a century. What you won’t miss is the suspense and mysteries for the characters in the plot and the audience watching them.

They also make up the cast of “The Forgotten Valley” Felipe Velozo, Jiddu Pinheiro, Julia Ianina, Juliana Lourenção, Marcos de Andrade, Roney Villela, Thais Lago, Ruiz, Michelle Rodrigues, Mayara Constantino, Carolina Mânica, Julia Sette, Rita Batata and Sergio Pardal.
