Perk up, muchachos. Netflix has ordered a second season of its new drama Narcos, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which shouldn't be much of a surprise since Netflix renews everything. Seriously, Netflix has never had a one-and-done series. Even Marco Polo got a second season.
But don't let that factoid negatively impact your judgment of Narcos as some charity case, because the critically acclaimed drama would have gotten a second season no matter what history said. Narcos is straight-up great.
Starring Wagner Moura as famed drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, Narcos chronicles the rise and fall of Escobar through the eyes of a pair of DEA agents (Pedro Pascal and Boyd Holbrook) sent to take him down. It's violent, stylish, and compelling. And in the hands of director Jose Padilha, it's also magnetic.
How far through Season 1 are you? Have you started your own cocaine smuggling empire since watching it? Can we get a cut?
