It would still be a while before Netflix’s “Narcos” returns for its second season next year, but fans are already hazarding guesses to see what will happen in the show.
In the season 1 finale, Pablo (Wagner Moura) was able to flee to the forest to avoid getting arrested by DEA Agent Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook).
A report from KDrama Stars hinted that the second season may see the end of Pablo since the show is based on the real life story of Pablo Escobar and his life as a Colombian drug kingpin and the Medellin cartel. The series revolves around Escobar’s constant cat and mouse game with drug enforcement agencies and his interesting life on the opposite side of the law.
Rumors of Escobar’s death were rooted on executive producer Jose Padilha’s revelation that the show was originally intended as a movie and not a series. The show’s success promoted a renewal for a second season.
“You got two teams running together through the narrative: One is the formation of the Medelln cartel, the story of small time criminals who stumbled by luck, by chance, upon a product that you can call the perfect product… How cocaine hit America and how it brought violence to America can only be narrated from the American perspective,” he said in a Variety interview.
There are some reports however, that speculated that the season will tackle Escobar’s life as a fugitive from justice.
Aside from Moura and Holbrook, the cast also includes Game of Thrones actor Pedro Pascal, Juan Pablo Raba, Joanna Christie, Stephanie Sigman, Manolo Cardona, Andr Mattos, Luis Guzman and Ana de la Reguera.
News of the season 2 premiere remains unofficial pending the announcement of Netflix, but it is rumored to be released sometime in August 2016 as the first season came out in August this year.
