‘El Chapo': Watch Drug Lord’s First Prison Escape in Season 2 Trailer (Video)

Univision drama series returns Sept. 17

“El Chapo” Season 2 kicks off with a prison break that leads to unexpected allies, as seen in the trailer for the Univision drama series.

The show that stars Marco de la O as the Mexican drug lord begins its second season with his first escape from incarceration. The new batch of episodes, premiering Sept. 17, will show how Chapo became the leader of the powerful criminal organization Sinaloa Cartel, with corrupt government officials aiding his rise.

“The war against Narco trafficking is going to be a total success,” Chapo says ominously in the trailer.

Season 2 of the co-production between Netflix and Story House Entertainment will feature English subtitles, making it the first Univision series to offer this.

The first season is currently available for streaming on Netflix, with Season 2 to be added at a yet-to-be-announced date.

“El Chapo” is co-created by Silvana Aguirre Zegarra and Carlos Contreras, and it is produced by Daniel Posada. The cast includes Humberto Busto, Juan Carlos Olivas, Alejandro Aguilar, Rolf Petersen, Hernan Romo, Diego Vasquez and Juliette Pardau.

Check out the tense footage above.

“El Chapo” returns Sunday, Sept. 17, at 10/9c on Univision.
