The new season of 'Narcos: Mexico' packs a punch

February 25, 2020


“Narcos: Mexico” season two is a very intriguing series full of emotions.


It is a Netflix series that follows the world of drug trafficking and the present war that has been unleashed on drugs, focusing on Mexican cartels.

The series's showrunner is Eric Newman, is directed by Carlo Bernard, Chris Brancato and Doug Miro, and has a tremendous cast made up of exceptional actors. 


Diego Luna plays the head of the Mexican cartel, Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, and the brilliant Michael Peña plays DEA special agent, Enrique Camarena.


Gallardo fights to maintain control, grow his empire, and pacify betrayals. Meanwhile, the United States armed forces want to avenge the execution of Camarena, Michael Peña, which causes the collapse of Gallardo’s empire.  


Gallardo makes allies with other significant drug traffickers and the Mexican president to expand his territory.


The traffickers are played by Alejandro Edda as Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman, Jesús Ochoa as Juan Nepomuceno Guerra, and José María Yazpik as Amado Carrillo Fuentes.


The creators bring us a magnificent drama about the past for a modern audience, the through line being the emotions they depict.


Bernard, Brancato, and Miro use exaggerated details to attract more viewers to their work by showing graphic scenes.


It was a very entertaining series to watch from the beginning to the last episode,  each making you wonder what will happen next. 


The DEA special agents get closer to each Narco related to Gallardo, to capture the ‘Padrino’.


But every time they are closer to arresting him, they are stopped by the people working for Gallardo. 


Personally, in order to watch this series, it is essential to watch the first season because it explains the origins of each person and how each one emerged in the world of drug trafficking and the motivation of the DEA agents.


This series gives many details that make you feel that you are in the action.


According to Netflix, “Narcos: Mexico”, has become increasingly violent and scary.


And obviously, it is not for all of the public. 


What I like about “Narcos: Mexico” is the personality each actor gives to their character, and how they show the 1980s.  


Maybe that is why it is the top series on Netflix with critics. It has everything to get engaged and more because “Narcos: Mexico” is based on real events on the history of drug trafficking. 


I recommended it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
