With just a few weeks left until the premiere of Narcos: Mexico season two, Netflix has finally dropped the electric first full official trailer for the acclaimed cutthroat drug-dealing drama.
Hitting Netflix on Thursday, February 13 — so warn your girlfriend now that you’ll be roleplaying as a drug lord all weekend — Narcos: Mexico will see Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) return as infamous Mexican drug kingpin and Guadalajara Cartel head Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo.
Here’s the official synopsis for Narcos: Mexico season two:
Season 2 of Narcos: Mexico continues chronicling the missteps, ill-conceived agendas, and corruption on both sides of the border that have lead to a dangerous present in the failed war on drugs. It’s the mid-1980s, as Félix Gallardo’s super cartel splinters under its own dark weight and social and political shifts within Mexico prompt its desperate government’s most brazen corruption. Meanwhile, the American effort to exact revenge for Kiki Camerana’s execution leads them further away from any hope for justice. The cycle of violence rages on.
In addition to Luna, the second season also sees Scoot McNairy star as DEA agent Walt Breslin. McNairy, who was the narrator the first season, did not make his on-camera debut until the final moments of the season finale.
Narcos: Mexico also stars Tenoch Huerta as Rafael Cara Quintero, Teresa Ruiz as Isabella Bautista, Alejandro Edda as Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, Andrés Londoño as Enrique Clavel, Alex Knight as Kenny Moss, Mayra Hermosillo as Enedina Arellano Felix, Sosie Bacon as Mimi Webb Miller, and more.
