Narcos: Mexico Season 2: Renewal Status & Release Date

Narcos: Mexico is the latest chapter in the Narcos TV series. The latest series has been well received with its new cast members and plot focal point but will it be returning for a second season? 

Narcos has been a staple on Netflix for the past several years. The series is produced by Gaumont International Television who also produces F is for Family for Netflix too. The series has become an anthology series of sorts where it covers different drug cartels. The first couple of seasons followed Pablo Escobar. The third then follows onto the Cali cartel but carries a few characters over.

The first season of Narcos: Mexico follows the rise of the Mexican cartel. Netflix signed up top talents for this season with Michael Peña and Diego Luna. This is the first series to cover the Mexican cartel and by all means, looks like it’ll be getting a second season. Here’s what we know so far.
