The Netflix series “Narcos” chronicles the life of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (played by Wagner Moura) and the two DEA agents desperate to hunt him down. As Escobar takes control of Colombia, cocaine from the country starts to take over America, and drug-related violence follows not far behind.
The DEA sends Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook), Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal), and a whole task force to work with Colombian authorities to put an end to the drug trade. But as they arrive in the country, Escobar has problems of his own with rival gangs, business associates, and political violence that brings unwanted attention to his gang.
At the start of the second season, Escobar escapes from prison untouched and has taken over the reigns of the drug business once again while the authorities are planning a full invasion to bring him down. Watch the trailer for the new season below.
The series is co-created by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro. It co-stars Joanna Christie, Paulina Gaitan (“Trade”), José Padilha (“Elite Squad”) Diego Cataño (“Savages”), and more. Eric Newman (“Children of Men”) executive produce the series. It’s produced by Gaumont International Television.
The second season of “Narcos” will launch on September 2nd, exclusively on Netflix.
