Netflix’s Narcos has had quite the successful run since it’s first season back in 2015 that focused on the story of the drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. They wrapped up that story in season 2 of the series the following year. Then in 2018 a companion series was released titled, Narcos: Mexico, that now shifted its focus on the illegal drug trade in Mexico. Specifically we follow the story of Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo, played by Diego Luna, who is the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, that is one of the biggest narcos in the history of Mexico and the founder of the modern Mexican drug trade.
Today Netflix announced the continuation of that story in season two of Narcos: Mexico, which will be premiering on February 13th, 2020. You can check out the Instagram announcement down below. The series is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix. Eric Newman is executive producer and showrunner. Jose Padilha, Doug Miro, Carlo Bernard and Andi Baiz are also serving as executive producers.
Here is a description of season two that is provided by Netflix:
Mexico continues chronicling the missteps, ill-conceived agendas, and corruption on both sides of the border that have lead to a dangerous present in the failed war on drugs. It’s the mid-1980s, as Félix Gallardo’s super cartel splinters under its own dark weight and social and political shifts within Mexico prompt its desperate government’s most brazen corruption. Meanwhile, the American effort to exact revenge for Kiki Camerana’s execution leads them further away from any hope for justice. The cycle of violence rages on.
This upcoming season, Scoot McNairy joins the cast of Narcos: Mexico as a character named Walt Breslin who is a hardened DEA agent whose methods aren’t always by the book. He is leading the team tasked with taking down those responsible for Kiki Camarena’s death. Along with McNairy, joining the cast of the series is Sosie Bacon, Andres Londoño, Alex Knight, Miguel Rodarte, Jesse Garcia, Matt Biedel, Jesus Ochoa, Flavio Medina, Alberto Zeni, Jero Medina, Jose Julian, Noe Hernandez and Nat Faxon.
Newman commented about the importance of the second season of Narcos: Mexico saying that, “To understand the current level of drug violence in Mexico you have to understand how it all started, and truly grasp America’s integral role in it. The second season of Narcos: Mexico is a Pandora’s box, the contents of which we still struggle in vain, 30 years later, to try and contain.”
After a very entertaining first season of Narcos: Mexico, I am looking forward to seeing what the series has in store for the second season. Are you ready for the next season of Narcos: Mexico? Let us know in the comment section below! Also check out some of the first look photos down below!
