Fans of Netflix’s Narcos found themselves glued to the screen for Narcos: Mexico, which debuted in November. Due to the overwhelming response, a second season of the sister show has been announced. Fortunately, two familiar faces will continue their adventures on screen.

Back At It Again

It was revealed that Scoot McNairy and Diego Luna will return for the second season. McNairy portrays DEA agent Walt Breslin, who also narrates the season. The Texan actor doesn’t appear on screen until the final episode, but already has a fan following.

Luna portrays Guadalajara Cartel leader Félix Gallardo. His performance earned him a Critics’ Choice Television Award nomination for Best Actor in a Drama Series.

Building A Franchise

Before the renewal, showrunner Eric Newman had a vision of how the Narcos franchise could expand. “If it’s the end, it’s just the continuing revolving doors of, “Here comes the new guy and this time we’re going to get it right.” We’ve now seen that with agents Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) and Pena (Pedro Pascal) in seasons one and two, Pena alone in season three, Kiki Camarena in Narcos: Mexico, and now a new guy, who is basically going to come down and probably get nothing done and the cycle will continue,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.

Back in October, Newman signed a multi year deal with the streaming service. His credits on Netflix include Hemlock Grove and Bright.

Doing Its Own Thing

Narcos: Mexico was originally slated to be the fourth season of Narcos. Instead, they opted to make it into a side story focused on the drug wars in Mexico. Several people from Narcos, including Amado Carrillo and Pablo Escobar, made appearances on the new series.

Production on the new season has already began. There’s no official date for its release yet, but it’s possible the new season will debut soon after season four of Narcos.
