Netflix has renewed “Narcos: Mexico” for a second season
Originally intended as a fourth season of “Narcos,” which focused on the rise of the cocaine business in Colombia under Pablo Escobar and his Medellin Cartel, “Narcos: Mexico” became a new series, shifting the focus to the beginnings of the Mexican drug trade and how it became what it is today.
“Narcos: Mexico” is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix. Eric Newman will return as executive producer and showrunner. Jose Padilha, Doug Miro, Carlo Bernard, and Andres Baiz are also executive producers.
Narcos was a popular series, so it’s not surprising Narcos: Mexico is already set to come back for a second season. It’s unclear who from the first season will be returning for the second — Luna is also set to star in Disney’s Rogue One prequel series. There’s also no word yet on when the second season will debut.
