Narcos: Mexico season 2: Netflix renews Diego Luna and Michael Peña series

Netflix has renewed Narcos: Mexico for a second season.

The sequel series – set in the 1980s – stars Diego Luna and Michael Peña as the Mexican drug-lord Félix Gallardo and DEA agent Kiki Camarena, respectively.

The story sees Kiki garner intelligence on Félix, eventually becoming more entangled in his mission and a tragic chain of events unfolding.

Both actors will assumably return for the second series, which itself will be the fifth overall season of Narcos. The first three revolved around the kingpin Pablo Escobar and the aftermath of his death, taking place primarily in Columbia.  

Narcos: Mexico will explore the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots,” the official synopsis for the first season reads.

Earlier this year, a location scout for Narcos – Carlos Muñoz Porta – was shot dead near San Bartolo Actopan, an area said to have some of Mexico’s highest murder rates.  

A release date for the upcoming episodes has not been announced.
