‘Narcos: Mexico’ Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix
More stories from the Guadalajara Cartel
Netflix has ordered another season of “Narcos: Mexico” the streaming service made the confirmation on Wednesday morning. The series is basically a spinoff of “Narcos,” instead of the traditional Season 4 story-line for “Narcos,” the production switched to telling the story of the early stages of the Mexican drug trade system. “Narcos: Mexico” was such a hit that Netflix is bringing the series back for another season.
“Narcos” chronicles the real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to take them down. It details the many, often-conflicting forces including legal, political, police, military and civilian lives that clash in the effort to control cocaine.
“Narcos: Mexico” explores the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers. The story follows the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.
“Narcos: Mexico” is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix. Eric Newman is Executive Producer and showrunner. José Padilha, Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard are Executive Producers. Netflix put together the announcement trailer below, to announce the coming of the new season.
