After a captivating first season last year, Netflix is bringing back its hit series Narcos for its second season, debuting Friday, September 2. The show's first episodes earned rave reviews from fans and critics alike, and now we have our first look as Season 2 gets underway. Today Netflix has revealed the first trailer for this 10-episode run, which shows the drug kingpin Pablo Escobar escaping from prison, with the DEA on the hunt.
In these new episodes, notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) is on the run, with the Colombian authorities in relentless pursuit, and determined to put an end to his illegal activities. This trailer from YouTube highlights how his daring prison escape made headlines, and made him one of the most wanted men in the world. The show was so popular that it was renewed for Season 2 just days after premiering last summer.
Narcos chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the infamous drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. Its gritty storytelling details the many, often-conflicting forces - legal, political, police, military and civilian - that clash in the effort to control cocaine, one of the world's most valuable commodities. Narcos is produced by Gaumont International Television for Netflix.
The Golden Globe nominated first season of Narcos is available for members to stream instantly on Netflix in Ultra HD 4K. The series also stars Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal as real-life DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña, Joanna Christie as Connie Murphy, Juan Murcia as Juan Pablo Escobar, Maurice Compte as Horacia Carrillo, Paulian Gaitan as Tata Escobar, Danielle Kennedy as Ambassador Noonan and Richard T. Jones as a DEA agent. No details have been given about any new characters joining the show for Season 2 quite yet.The show underwent a few big changes in the offseason, with showrunner Adam Fierro parting ways with the series, and Eric Newman and Jose Padilha remaining on board as executive producers.
Eric Newman teased in May that Pablo Escobar will die this season, revealing that after the prison escape shown in the trailer, the drug kingpin only has 18 months to live before he was killed in 1992. It isn't known what the show has planned for Season 2 and beyond, but Eric Newman teased in May that there are several different avenues the show could explore after Pablo's death. In addition to the new trailer, we also have new photos from Season 2 of Narcos, which you can check out below.
