|Narcos Season 2||Cast & Crew Information||Plot Summary|
There was a time HBO was the de facto network for great adult entertainment. Though they still produce pretty great series such as “Game of Thrones” they’ve fallen to the wayside ever since their competitor Netflix ramped up their original productions.
With a wide plethora of shows ranging from “Orange is the New Black” and Marvel’s “Daredevil” and other Defenders characters such as “Jessica Jones” as well as the upcoming “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” it’s hard for other networks to compete. They’ve also helped revive old well loved series such as “Arrested Development” and “Full House” (?!?!). What makes Netflix such a great choice is the talent they attract.
Which other network could attract a filmmaker such as José Padilha? After his experience and eventual critical dismissal for his 2014 “Robocop” reboot one would’ve imagined he’d never return to a Hollywood production. Alas we were wrong.
Through the online streaming service he’s made an incredible series on the life of Colombian drug cartel boss Pablo Escobar. “Narcos” may have become repetitive towards the end of its first season but with the story taking on the final part of the warlords life Season 2 might just rejuvenate the series.
Netflix series “Narcos” returns for Season 2 on the 2nd of September 2016 in the U.S.. Now that the online video streaming series is available in most parts of Asia it should be shown around the same time. Of course censors may delay it but there’s hoping that won’t happen.

Netflix takes on the infamous Medellín drug cartel in “Narcos,” which follows the rise and fall of Colombian kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Drug Enforcement Agency agents hunting him. The story is told largely from the points of view of Escobar, played by Brazilian actor Wagner Moura, and U.S. DEA Agent Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook), on opposite sides of what would become an all-out war. The gritty drama begins with the early days of the drug battle, when the biggest offenders were “hippies in flip-flops” caught with up to a kilo of marijuana, continuing to the violent, bloody battles between members of the cartel peddling tons of kilos of cocaine and drug agents from Colombia, Mexico, and the U.S. — a struggle estimated to have cost at least 4,000 lives over two decades. Pedro Pascal (“Game of Thrones”) co-stars as Mexican DEA Agent Javier Peña.
