Diego Luna Returns as Félix Gallardo in Season 2 of Narcos: Mexico, premiering February 13, 2020

  • Narcos: Mexico is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix. Eric Newman is Executive Producer and showrunner. José Padilha, Doug Miro, Carlo Bernard and Andi Baiz are Executive Producers.
  • Diego Luna plays Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (“Félix”), the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, one of the biggest narcos in the history of Mexico and the founder of the modern Mexican drug trade. Quiet but bold, inscrutable but sharp-minded, to all appearances he is a benevolent leader, loyal to his friends, associates, and employees…but his ambition comes before all else.
  • Scoot McNairy plays Walt Breslin, a hardened DEA agent whose methods aren’t always by the book. He is leading the team tasked with taking down those responsible for Kiki Camarena’s death.
  • 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.
  • Executive Producer and Showrunner Eric Newman says of the story this season, “To understand the current level of drug violence in Mexico you have to understand how it all started, and truly grasp America’s integral role in it. The second season of Narcos: Mexico is a Pandora’s box, the contents of which we still struggle in vain, 30 years later, to try and contain.”

Several cast members join Narcos: Mexico in season 2 including:

  • Mayra Hermosillo (Falco) as Enedina Arellano Felix
  • Sosie Bacon (Here and Now) as Mimi Webb Miller
  • Andrés Londoño (Fear the Walking Dead) as Enrique Clavel

How about behind the camera? Jason Bateman (Ozark) and Andrew Bernstein will serve as both executive producers and a directors, with Bateman tackling the first two episodes. Richard Price (The Night Of, The Deuce) and Dennis Lehane (Mystic River) are slated to write as well as executive produce.

Additional producers are Bateman’s Aggregate Films (Ozark), Temple Hill Entertainment, Mendelsohn, executive producers Marty Bowen for Temple Hill Entertainment, Jack Bender (Lost), and Michael Costigan for Aggregate Films, with studio support from MRC (House of Cards, Counterpart).

AMAZON

It seems fitting that the first season of The Expanse on Amazon will find the crew of the Roci arriving at their own new home. After deciding to see what lies on the other side of the Rings in the Season 3 finale, Season 4 will see Holden (Steven Strait) and his crew arriving at the planet Ilus, a dangerous new world that has become the center of a vicious battle between the Belter refugees who colonized it and the United Nations, who seek to control it. And with Protomolecule Miller (Thomas Jane) still haunting Holden, you can bet that there’s a whole other layer to the danger waiting for the Roci beyond the Rings too.
