Is Santo Based On A Real Story?
Ever since the Brazilian crime drama series Santo premiered on Netflix, fans can’t help but draw a parallel between Netflix’s Santo and Narcos. Therefore, an obvious question that arises here is whether or not Santo is based on a true story. However, the answer is no; any real-life events do not inspire Santo. Santo and his enigmatic life and deeds are entirely the creator Carlos López’s brainchild. The characters, their emotional underpinnings, and their plotlines were still inspired by reality by López, making them genuine people.
Menwhile, during an interview with Variety, Lopez stated, “I was fascinated thinking of a cop thriller that consists of cops going after evil. She also added, “That the notion that evil is something that we don’t really see, which is something that I think happens in life.” According to López, Santo addresses the dread of the invisible since every human being begins their life fearing the dark. Santo, the drug kingpin, is the embodiment of evil in the eyes of protagonists Millán and Cardona.
