The hunt for the escaped drug lord Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) plays out in season two of Netflix’s Narcos, based on true events. “This wasn’t just a manhunt, this was a war. But the problem is, Pablo is never more dangerous than when you almost have him,” says DEA Agent Steve Murphy (played by Boyd Holbrook) in the season two trailer. Season one is currently streaming on Netflix for those who need to catch up on the riveting, critically acclaimed dramatic series prior to the premiere of season two. Netflix is set to launch all 10 hour-long episodes of season two on Friday, September 2, 2016 at 12:01am PT.
Narcos is executive produced by José Padilha (Elite Squad, RoboCop) and Eric Newman (Children of Men). The cast also includes Pedro Pascal, Joanna Christie, and Paulina Gaitin.
The Plot: Narcos chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the infamous drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. Its gritty storytelling details the many, often-conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in the effort to control cocaine, one of the world’s most valuable commodities.
