We may not know all of the details about Narcos Season 2, but one thing is inevitable: Pablo Escobar’s (Wagner Moura) days are numbered. There’s a war coming, and the leader of the Medellin Cartel won’t be the last man standing. With Pablo’s demise on the horizon, the latest trailer for Season 2 of Narcos begs the question “Who killed Pablo?”
While Season 1 covered a span of 15 years, the upcoming season of Narcos will explore the final 18 months of Pablo’s life following his mind-boggling escape from his plush prison, La Catedral. The DEA, Cali Cartel, Colombia’s search bloc and others are all on the hunt for Escobar. As the latest trailer reminds us, however, the billionaire drug kingpin is never more dangerous than when his back’s against the wall.
Narcos has yet to be renewed for Season 3. Should there be additional seasons of the show, however, Moura confirmed that Season 2 will definitely be his last (guess that means we shouldn’t count on seeing flashbacks of Pablo in future seasons). Moura also stated that Season 2 will be more “character driven,” which is something that could help create new fan favorite characters for a Pablo-free Season 3.
Though the future of Narcos has yet to be confirmed, executive producer Eric Newman said, “I think there’s a reason why we call this show Narcos and not Pablo Escobar. It’s very much about the trade. There are other drug dealers and there are alliances formed against Pablo, so there are a multitude of stories we could tackle.”
Season 2 of Narcos premieres September 2 on Netflix. Check out the new trailer above and get ready to witness the violent end of one of history’s most notorious criminals.
