Rebelde Way (Rebel's Way) is a Martín Fierro Award—nominated Argentine soap opera created and produced by Cris Morena. It originally aired from 26 May 2002 to 18 December 2003. The series was broadcast in many countries worldwide, including Peru, Germany, Israel, Spain, Uruguay and Brazil, achieving widespread success.

Rebelde Way is set in the Elite Way School, a prestigious private boarding high school near Buenos Aires. The students of the school are the members of Argentine wealthiest families, as well as gifted students with scholarships. The series follows the lives of Elite Way students, their parents and their professors, and it also features the regular use of English language and phrases by the upper class. Its central characters are Marizza Pía Spirito, Mía Colucci, Pablo Bustamante and Manuel Aguirre, portrayed by, respectively, Camila Bordonaba, Luisana Lopilato, Benjamín Rojas and Felipe Colombo. The four form a band named Erreway, in order to pursue their dreams. The band enjoyed a great success throughout Latin America, Europe and Israel, selling over 3 million records[3] and achieving several Platinum records.[4][5] Along with spawning a series of merchandising, Cris Morena Group also released a spin–off movie Erreway: 4 Caminos in 2004.

Plot summary[edit]

The series' main plot line revolves around a group of students forming a band. The actors who play the members of this band are also a real-life band, called Erreway.

Film sequel[edit]

Worldwide syndication[edit]

International remakes[edit]

The format was sold for various countries across the globe. In 2003, the Spanish public broadcaster TVE bought the rights to adapt the show. It did not go into production because of disagreements between the executives and Cris Morena Group. Also in 2003, Destiny, an independent company in Brazil, bought the rights and produced a pilot but it wasn't picked up by any network.

One of the first remakes to be made was Indian Remix. Produced by Rose Audio Visuals, it aired on Star One channel. As it was a hit among teenagers, it has returned on the same channel. In 2008, a Portuguese version of the same name was made by the channel SIC. Its first season started airing in September, but the second season was cancelled due to poor ratings. Corazón Rebelde is the Chilean remake of the show that aired from August 2009 on Canal 13 with the name of S.O.S. and Corazón Rebelde as the slogan. Two weeks after from the released of the show the name was changed to its previous slogan. It has had a good reception since it was released.
