There are plenty of cliffhangers to keep you hooked for the rest of the season. All fans have to do now is cross their fingers that the remaining characters get their happy endings.

The brilliant costume design of ‘Cable Girls’ gives it an air of authenticity and takes viewers back to 1920s Madrid – from bob haircuts and drop-waist dresses for women to sleek suits for men and cloche hats, ‘Cable Girls’ recreate 1920s Madrid in outstanding fashion.
The show’s use of popular music, however, detracts from the show’s reconstruction of 1920s Madrid. Having said that, it is still a fantastic reflection of the period.
In terms of themes, the show does an excellent job of providing audiences with insight into the lives of suffragette women. We meet female characters who are often coerced into careers, relationships, and unfavorable circumstances in the show.
Obviously, the show has made an impact on its audience, earning a commendable overall rating of 7.8/10 on IMDb.
