It tells the unusual story of five women who randomly meet each other one day in Cancun and realise they all have the same name.

While that in itself is pretty unusual, they then discover they each have the same birthmark on their butt. 

Juana Manuela (Zuria Vega), Juana Valentina (Renata Notni), Juana Caridad (Oka Giner), Juana Matilde (Juanita Arias), and Juana Bautista (Sofia Engberg) discover a dark secret; they are all related and share the same father, an aspiring politician with a dark secret.

Over the 18-episode series, the sisters must try to uncover the secrets of their corrupt family including their real father, Simón Marroquín (Carlos Ponce) who is involved in lots of shady economical and political ventures.

And a fourth said: "Oh my god #theFiveJuanas is crazyyy."

In other news, Netflix murder-fest You dropped its third season on Friday, and it looks like lead Penn Bagdley's character, Joe Goldberg, is still as messed up as ever.

Season two's finale saw Joe move into a family home with the equally murderous and pregnant Love (Victoria Pedretti). 

In the final moments of season two, it is implied that Joe is infatuated with his neighbour, who has not yet been revealed.

There are many questions swirling around You season three’s plot-lines, such as whether any new characters will be joining Joe and Love, and how their new domesticated family will affect their stalker-like and murderous tendencies.

But we have a feeling that, baby or not, things are going to get pretty dark.

The Five Juanas and You season 3 are available to watch on Netflix now.
