The online entertainment portal Netflix faced severe backlash for not continuing with the hit superhero show ‘Daredevil’ but they have made up for their mistake by renewing Narcos: Mexico for a second season. The drug cartel thrilling drama is the fourth part of the Narcosverse. The series premiered on November 16 and opened to favorable reviews.
The critically acclaimed show stars Diego Luna donning the shoes of drug kingpin Felix Gallardo’s character. The show traces his story of how his criminal mind helped him build a drug racket that was murky and gritty. Michael Pena plays Kiki Camarena, a Drug and Enforcement Administration agent who goes undercover to bust Gallardo’s cartel.
A report in The Hollywood Reporter said: “It’s unclear whether Diego Luna, who will also be starring in the Star Wars prequel series for Disney’s forthcoming streaming service, will return for the second season of Narcos: Mexico, The season finale suggested Luna’s character would play a big part if the series continued.”
The first two seasons of the show focused on the rise and fall of the most notorious drug lord – Pablo Escobar. The third season focused on the story of Cali cartel but it wasn’t well received by the audience because of the paper-thin storyline. Therefore, the makers shifted to shift to a new zone altogether and well, it worked well for them.
The Hollywood Reporter also talked on the popularity of the series, it said: “Narcos is a key piece of Netflix’s global plan and a strong player abroad. The renewal comes as the streamer furthers its international push with a recently announced host of new films and original series telling stories from Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, Germany and India.”
