The Narcos: Mexico Season 2 Trailer Has Dropped
The official trailer for the second season of Narcos: Mexico has dropped and it's pretty intense:
The Netflix cartel drama show will be available on the streaming service from 13 February - more than a year after the release of the first season, which took us back to the 1980s to show the birth of the Guadalajara cartel and trace the origins of the Mexican drug war.
According to Netflix, this second season continues the story of Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (played by Diego Luna). Now the Godfather of the first Mexican cartel - the Guadalajara cartel - he struggles to maintain control, grow his empire, and reconcile the betrayals and sacrifices he had to make on his way to becoming El Padrino.
As friction rises between the different 'plazas' of his cartel, Félix's control over the situation slips. Meanwhile, the death of DEA agent Kiki Camarena at the hands of the cartel and corrupt politicians means a hailstorm of retribution is on its way to Mexico.
'Operation Leyenda' which is led by the dogged DEA agent Walt Breslin, whose methods aren't always by-the-book, targets Félix Gallardo and his chief lieutenants, adding to the instability and volatility of the cartel.

Fans can't contain their excitement for this new instalment with one even dubbing it his 'Valentine's date' - whatever floats your boat, we guess.
Someone else wrote: "F**kkkkkk soooo f**king hyped right now!!!!!" While another added: "I hope its 300 episodes 1 hour long each."
The programme is the sister series to Netflix's acclaimed cartel crime show Narcos, which focused on the drug trade in Colombia, with the American Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) attempting to dismantle the drug trade in Latin America - largely led by infamous cartel leader Pablo Escobar.
Narcos: Mexico originally began as the fourth season of Narcos, but following its success, it was developed into a separate series altogether.
Producer Eric Newman told THR: "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."
