Netflix has reportedly been renewed Narcos: Mexico for a second season.

Originally intended as a fourth season of Narcos, which focused on the rise of the cocaine business in Colombia under Pablo Escobar and his Medellín Cartel, Narcos: Mexico became a new series, shifting the focus to the beginnings of the Mexican drug trade and how it became what it is today.

Season 1 charts the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.

In addition to Luna and Peña, the first season also starred Alyssa Diaz, Joaquín Cosio, Matt Letscher, and Aaron Staton. The season has received mostly positive reviews from critics, holding an 84% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Narcos: Mexico” is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix. Eric Newman will return as executive producer and showrunner. José Padilha, Doug Miro, Carlo Bernard, and Andrés Baiz are also executive producers.
