“The second season of Narcos: Mexico is a Pandora’s box,” explained creator Eric Newman, “the contents of which we still struggle in vain, 30 years later, to try and contain.”
This season will beg the question of how central the supporting characters will become as they climb in the ranks of the Guadalajara cartel. Case-in-point, the notorious drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán has a small character arc in season 1, and based on what history tells us, his role will inevitably become crucial in Narcos: Mexico season 2. Additionally, Gallardo’s nephew, Benjamín Arellano Félix, became one of Mexico’s biggest suppliers of cocaine during that time. It’s safe to assume that Narcos: Mexico season 2 will explore all of the events leading up to his 1989 arrest.
This time the series is set in 80s Mexico and focuses on the real life story of Kiki Camarena – an undercover DEA agent who was murdered while on an assignment.
Previous series of the show were set in Columbia and focused on the drug cartel run by Pablo Escobar.
José María Yazpik will also be reprising his role as Amado Carrillo Fuentes from the show’s third season.
40-year-old Mexican actor and director Diego is best known for sci-fi films playing Julio in Elysium, Ray in Flatliners and Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Luna was born in Toluca in Mexico City on December 29, 1979, to mother Fiona Alexander – a British costume designer who died when he was two years old.
His father Alejandro Luna is an acclaimed theatre, film and opera set designer.
Luna got his big break in 2001 starring in Y Tu Mamá También – a Mexican road trip movie.
The critically acclaimed Narcos series has come a long way since it premiered in 2015, setting an impressive precedent for Narcos: Mexico. Initially intended as the fourth season of the original Narcos series, its companion series takes us on a new journey in a different country taking place in the same screwed-up world; only this time the setting is 1980s Mexico.
After a wildly successful first season, Narcos: Mexico finally returns to dominate your Netflix queue on February 13- so you might want to rethink those extravagant Valentine’s Day plans and opt for a cozy night in to a bingewatch instead. Here’s everything we know about our favorite cartel members and what we can expect to see in season 2.
