Narcos: Mexico is an American crime drama web series created and produced by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro that premiered on Netflix on November 16, 2018. The series follows the establishment of the modern Mexican drugs trade, focussing on real-life narco Felix Gallardo, a former Sinaloan police officer turned drug lord, and Kiki Camarena, a Mexican-American DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) agent tasked with taking Felix down.
The season followed the two men’s cat and mouse game, which ended in the abduction, torture, and murder of Kiki, whose death ultimately served as a catalyst in the war on drugs. The finale also finally revealed the identity of the show’s narrator: Scoot McNairy as agent Walt Breslin, a DEA agent in charge of Operation Leyenda, a task force that worked to bring to justice those responsible for Kiki’s death — and the focus of Narcos: Mexico season two.
We’re still light on details for what the next series will entail, but the voice-over from DEA agent Walt Breslin said: “What happened in Guadalajara in the early ’80s was the beginning”. “What happened in Guadalajara gave birth to the first cartel. From that, others would follow. And the violence and money and drugs, they just f***ing explode. It changed the DEA, too. Maybe it woke us up, I don’t know. But it’s where the first shot was fired, the one that started the drug war. And after that, none of it would be the same. How could it be?” The finale ends with him saying: “We knew we were in a war. Now, it was our turn. Pretty soon, they were gonna know, they were in one too”.
It’s been known since last December that Narcos: Mexico, which stars Diego Luna and Michael Peña, would be returning for a second season. José María Yazpik, who plays Amado Carrillo Fuentes, seems to have accidentally announced the return date, He was asked on Instagram when the release date was and replied: ‘Febrero’ which is Spanish for February. While we wait for an update on season 2, check out the season 1 trailer to refresh your memories. If you haven’t seen the show yet head over to Netflix to catch all the episodes of the previous seasons.
