'Narcos: Mexico' season 2 will see a new rival challenge Felix in another cat-and-mouse game after Kiki's murder
"The bad guys need to get lucky every time. The good guys just need to get lucky once." The classic dialogues from 'Narcos' still hit home. So, when Netflix announced a reboot to show the rise of a new empire, it did invoke a sense of thrill and excitement among fans. Even as the plot has little or no connection with the first three seasons of 'Narcos', it still matches the semblance and tone of the initial episodes in the series.
The drug cartel drama, now starring Michael Pena and Diego Luna, makes a switch from Colombia to Mexico. While it ended the tales of Javier Pena and Pedro Pascal, there was a new beginning in the Guadalajara cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo takes the steering wheel.
In its first season, 'Narcos: Mexico' goes back to its roots, beginning at a time when the trafficking business was disorganized and messy with a fraternity of independent dealers. There's a battle ensuing between DEA agent Kiki Camarena and Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo – the Jack Pearson of Mexico. Shrewd, sharp-minded and a benevolent leader, Felix trounces Kiki's plans to catch him and in the cat-and-mouse game, emerging as the victor after extreme torture, abduction and ultimately, the death of the latter.
In the second season, it is yet to be seen who challenges Felix now and whether there is someone who can get the better of him. Luna, the actor who plays Felix, could make a return. However, Peña (Kiki) will be missed and there's hope for a new entry to the show.
Scoot McNairy is the new actor who plays agent Walt Breslin, a DEA agent all set to lead the way following Kiki's murder. In a revelation at the end of the show, it was found out that he was indeed the undisclosed narrator in season one. Other actors that will be seen on the second season are Tenoch Huerta as Rafael Cara Quintero, Teresa Ruiz as Felix's girlfriend Isabella Bautista, and Alejandro Edda as Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. The story might go on ahead to make Joaquin the head of the Sinaloa Cartel after Felix.
For now, Netflix has released a short 39-second clip to say that "the story continues".
