Netflix have released the official trailer for the upcoming second season of Narcos: Mexico.
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.
The second season will continue to chronicle the missteps, ill-conceived agendas and corruption on both sides of the border that have led 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 Camarena’s execution leads them further away from any hope for justice. The cycle of violence rages on.
So far we know the second season will star Diego Luna, Scoot McNairy, Tenoch Huerta, Teresa Ruiz and Alejandro Edda.
Narcos: Mexico’s second season will become available on the streaming service from the 13th February 2020.
