"The King of Palma" goes into the next round. Filming for the second season of the series with Henning Baum (50) has started in Mallorca. This was announced by RTL in a message. The first round of the crime series about Ballermann in the early 1990s started on RTL in February 2022.
Heike Makatsch (51) is new. In the new episodes she plays Sylvia Adler, the wife of Matti Adler (Henning Baum), who emigrated to Mallorca. In the first season, Sandra Borgmann (48) played this role. RTL announced her departure in September without giving any reasons.
Heike Makatsch has a close connection to Mallorca. The island has been her "place of longing" since she was a child. "To me, however, Mallorca means less partying and sangria than a connection to nature and peace of mind. Parts of my biography have grown together with Mallorca."
In addition to Heike Makatsch, Karolin Oesterling (36) is another newcomer.
Henning Baum will remain in the series as the main actor. At his side are André Hennicke (64), Martin Semmelrogge (66), Eva Mona Rodekirchen (46) and Sönke Möhring (50).
Season 2's story begins in 1992, two years after the events of Season 1. The Ballermann is becoming more and more popular with tourists - and the distribution fights among restaurateurs are getting harder and harder. Matti Adler wants to expand, but comes up against rivals in the process. He "must decide what he is willing to risk in order to prevail against his competition," says RTL.
