Narcos: Mexico Season 2 Coming To Netflix 'In February 2020'
José María Yazpik, who plays Amado Carrillo Fuentes, has seemingly confirmed on Instagram that the show will return, after he posted a photo of himself, which a fan then replied to.
They asked: "Aun no hay fecha de Narcos Mexico 2?"
Thanks to my GCSE in Spanish, I can proudly confirm the fan is asking if there's a date for Narcos: Mexico 2.
To which the actor responded: "Febrero." Which, you guessed it, means February.
Although Netflix has declined to comment, it seems that one of the stars of the show would likely know the date of its release, so if it's not right - blame him, not us.
Yazpik's character Fuentes was known in real life as El Señor de Los Cielos - which translates to The Lord of the Skies - because of the large fleet of jets he used to transport drugs.
Narcos: Mexico is the sister series to acclaimed cartel crime show Narcos.

The original series focused on the drug trade in Colombia, with the American Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) attempting to dismantle the drug trade in Latin America, which was largely led by infamous cartel leader Pablo Escobar.
Narcos: Mexico looks at the rise of the illegal drug trade in Mexico, in particular the rise of the Guadalajara drug cartel in 1980s Mexico.
It began as the fourth season of Narcos, but after seeing its success, it was developed into a separate series.
Netflix confirmed last December that a second season would be going ahead and it looks as though it will be available to stream soon.
They announced the news via a tweet back in December.

We're still light on details for what the next series will entail, but the voice-over from DEA agent Walt Breslin said: "What happened in Guadalajara in the early '80s was the beginning.
"What happened in Guadalajara gave birth to the first cartel. From that, others would follow. And the violence and money and drugs, they just f***ing explode. It changed the DEA, too.
"Maybe it woke us up, I don't know. But it's where the first shot was fired, the one that started the drug war. And after that, none of it would be the same. How could it be?"
The finale ends with him saying: "We knew we were in a war. Now, it was our turn. Pretty soon, they were gonna know, they were in one too."
LADbible has reached out to Netflix, who would not confirm when Narcos: Mexico season 2 will premiere.
