While critics have mostly been kind to Netflix‘s “Narcos,” our own Erik McClanahan was far less enthused in the series. In particular, he had issues with the POV of the narrative, which tells the story of Pablo Escobar through the eyes of a DEA agent, and it wasn’t helped by the atrocious voiceover given to that character (in fact, it’s so bad, I couldn’t bring myself watch any more after the first episode). But Netflix has the faith, because they’ve ordered up more.
THR reports that “Narcos” has been renewed for season two. The creative team will get a slight switcheroo with Adam Fierro (“The Shield“) stepping in as showrunner for Chris Brancato (“Hannibal“), and the writers room is being put together for the next wave of episodes.
We’ll wait to see if they keep the formula or try and shake things up to fix some of the flaws (please, that voiceover telling the audience everything they are seeing on screen has got to go). Do you have any improvements you think “Narcos” should make, or are you happy with the way it is? Let us know below.
