Fans of Netflix’s drama “Narcos,” about the life of the infamous Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura), don’t have to wait until the premiere of season two to see what’s next for the show. Netflix posted the first 11 minutes of the next episode on Facebook to get viewers hooked.
Season two begins with Escobar escaping from prison and taking control of the drug business once again. At the same time, authorities are planning an ambush to bring him to justice. Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) and Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal) are back in season two as DEA agents on the hunt for Escobar. “Putting an end to Pablo is a patriotic act,” says one member of Los Pepes, the vigilante group comprised of people who want the drug lord dead.
The series was co-created by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro. “Narcos” co-stars include Joanna Christie, Paulina Gaitan (“Trade”), José Padilha (“Elite Squad”) and Diego Cataño (“Savages”).
