The story of Félix Gallardo isn’t over yet, as Netflix has renewed “Narcos: Mexico” for a second season, the streamer announced Wednesday. The renewal comes just three weeks after the first season’s Nov. 16 premiere. No return date has been set.
“Narcos: Mexico” charts the origins of the country’s drug war through the rise and fall of the Guadalajara Cartel under Miguel Angel Félix Gallardo. Season 1 follows Gallardo as he unites Mexico’s disparate smuggling organizations into the country’s first global drug empire, while DEA agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena’s efforts to expose the operation lead him to a horrific outcome with decades-long geopolitical consequences.
With Diego Luna as Gallardo and Michael Peña as Camarena, Season 1 also starred Tenoch Huerta Mejía, Alyssa Diaz, Joaquín Cosío, José María Yazpik, Matt Letscher, Ernesto Alterio, Alejandro Edda, Fernanda Urrejola, Teresa Ruiz, Gerardo Taracena and Aaron Staton.
Created by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro with Eric Newman as executive producer and showrunner, “Narcos: Mexico” is a companion series to Bernard and Miro’s 2015-2017 Netflix series “Narcos,” which followed the rise and fall of Colombia’s Medellin and Cali cartels during the 1980s and 1990s. José Padilha, Doug Miro, Carlo Bernard and Andrés Baiz also serve as executive producers,
“Narcos: Mexico” is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix.
