Dropping In Time For Valentine’s Day
Diego Luna returns as Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo, leader of the Guadalajara Cartel, and Scott McNairy as DEA Agent Walt Breslin. Set in the 80s, Narcos: Mexico follows the rise of Mexico’s ongoing drug wars.
This marks the fifth installment of Netflix’s Narcos saga. The show’s first three seasons followed Colombia’s illegal drug trade in the 80s. Narcos: Mexico, was originally pitched as the fourth season of Narcos, but has since evolved into its own thing, with occasional character crossovers.
Netflix has released a new trailer –
Netflix official synopsis reads –
“Season two of Narcos: Mexico will continue to chronicle the missteps, ill-conceived agendas and corruption on both sides of the border that have led to a dangerous present in the failed war on drugs. It’s the mid-1980s, as Félix Gallardo’s super cartel splinters under its own dark weight and social and political shifts within Mexico prompt its desperate government’s most brazen corruption. Meanwhile, the American effort to exact revenge for Camerana’s execution leads them further away from any hope for justice. The cycle of violence rages on.”
Showrunner Eric Newman adds of the season –
“To understand the current level of drug violence in Mexico you have to understand how it all started, and truly grasp America’s integral role in it. The second season of Narcos: Mexico is a Pandora’s box, the contents of which we still struggle in vain, 30 years later, to try and contain.”
Joining Luna and McNairy in the new season are Mayra Hermosillo (Enedina Arellano Felix), Sosie Bacon (Mimi Webb Miller), Andrés Londoño (Enrique Clavel), Alex Knight (Kenny Moss), Miguel Rodarte (Danilo Garza), Jesse Garcia (Sal Orozco), Matt Biedel (Daryl Petski), Jesus Ochoa (Juan Nepomuceno Guerra), Flavio Medina (Juan Garcia Abrego), Alberto Zeni (Amat Palacios), Jero Medina (Ossie Mejia), Jose Julian (Javier Arellano Felix), Noé Hernandez (Rafael Aguilar), and Nat Faxon (Ted Kaye).
Narcos: Mexico is returning to Netflix on February 13th, 2020. Happy Valentine’s Day.
