Narcos: Mexico Renewed For Second Season At Netflix


Media outlets are reporting that Netflix has renewed crime drama series Narcos: Mexico for a second season.

 

The first season explored the origins of the modern drug war, back to the 1980’s when the Mexican traffic world was a loose and disorganised confederation of independent growers and deals. It focused on the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel, led by Félix Gallardo, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena 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.

 

Eric Newman served as executive producer and showrunner on the first season, which premiered on Netflix back on the 16th November. I’m not surprised of the second season renewal, I’ve only a few episodes left to watch but overall the series has been really good and I like the callbacks to the original Narcos series.
