Just over three weeks ago, Netflix released a dramatic thriller that took hold of its audience overnight and hasn’t let go for the last three weeks. With more plot twists than any other series on the platform right now, the Spanish thriller is being called one of the most binge-worthy thrillers that Netflix has to offer. Without further ado, let’s dive into the Pact of Silence and figure out what’s so special about it.
The story of Pact of Silence follows the life of Brenda Rey, a popular and highly successful social media influencer who had more than a rough start in life. Brenda was abandoned in a shack at birth. She grew up homeless, having to raise herself and work hard for everything that she had and suffering sexual abuse along the way.
Now fully grown and having made something of herself, her only quest is for revenge and to find out which of the four girls at a private school was her mother and what their headmistress knew about the situation. Fully intent on figuring out the mystery for herself, Brenda infiltrates the lives of the four friends, who are now all grown up as well, all in the name of uncovering why she was left there.

Thankfully, her connections and resources are more numerous than people could even dream of, thanks to her success as an influencer, meaning that she has enough money at her fingertips to make a miracle happen. She is dead set on using it to take revenge on the woman who ruined her life before it had even started.
According to Mail Online, the Pact of Silence climaxes as, “With the help of her manager, Alex, she’s determined to find every single one of them, including the headmistress who enabled it all.”
The drama thriller series was excellently directed by Carlos Villegas Rosales and written by José Vicente Spataro. It was filmed in Mexico, using locations like Guerrero Mexico City, Soledad de Dablado and Veracruz.

The series’ first season stars rising talents like Adriana Louvier as Fernanda Alarcó, Camila Valero as Brenda Rey, Chantal Andere as Ramona Castro, Daniel Medina as Gustavo, José Manuel Rincón as Adriano, Kika Edgar as Irene Bustamante, Litzy as Sofía Estrada, Marimar Vega as Martina Robles, Martín Barba as Alex, and Ricardo Abarca as Cesar.
Since being released on October 11th, Pact of Silence has maintained a place in the Netflix Tudum Top 10 category for Non-English TV series for the last three weeks, starting out in 5th place, jumping up to 2nd place and then falling back down to 4th place in this latest week on record (which is October 23rd to October 29th). While views and hours viewed have gone up and down, in the last three weeks, the series has accumulated 157.6 million hours viewed and 13.1 million views.
Fans on X(Twitter) have been talking about how the non-English series is a binge-worthy series that has attracted fans who wouldn’t even conventionally be fans of Netflix and its streaming platform. We will see if the claims that fans can’t get enough prove true going into further weeks and how the ranking fares.
The audience knows more about this than the critics at Rotten Tomatoes, as the series doesn’t even have enough reviews to have a ranking on the site yet, other than the very divided 55% score from audiences. It could be that the fans who are in love with the series and bringing it over on Netflix are voicing their opinions on social media platforms rather than on traditional dating sites like IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes; however, until there are more reviews, we won’t know what the general public thinks beyond the hype over on X.
Pact of Silence is a non-English Netflix TV series that has taken the world by storm, with many fans saying they can’t get enough of it.
The series is a soap opera and tells the dramatic story of a successful woman with a tormented past trying to find out who her mother is.
It will be interesting to see if the series stays on Netflix’s Top 10 for another week.
