As addictive -- and relevant -- as ever, Narcos: México's sophomore season is definitely more violent, but it never spoils the rich drama fans have come to love.

Tv Season Info

Narcos: Mexico season 2 continues the story of Miguel Ángel ​Félix Gallardo, now the Godfather of the first Mexican cartel -- the Guadalajara cartel -- as he struggles to maintain control, grow his empire, and reconcile the betrayals and sacrifices he had to make on his way to becoming El Padrino. As friction between the different "plazas" of his cartel rises, Fé​lix's control over the situation slips. Meanwhile, the death of DEA agent Kiki Camarena at the hands of the cartel and corrupt politicians brings a hailstorm of retribution to Mexico. "Operation Leyenda" led by the dogged DEA agent Walt Breslin, whose methods aren't always by-the-book, targets Fé​​lix Gallardo and his chief lieutenants, adding to the instability and volatility of the cartel.

Critic Reviews for Narcos: Mexico Season 2

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (1)

As ever, it's exquisitely written, cast and shot, making great use of Mexico's stunning landscapes, opulent haciendas and colourful '80s fashions. The series does a fine job too of keeping the viewer straight about a big cast of characters.

Netflix original series Narcos continues the story of the Mexican drug trade following Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, head of the Guadalajara Cartel in Narcos: Mexico.

Mar 29, 2020 | Full Review…

These characters are so interesting.

Mar 10, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The second season of Narcos: Mexico, then, is far from flawless - but there are enough reminders of what has made the show such a phenomenon to make it a worthy watch.

Mar 9, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The show stays close to its roots and provides an incredibly stylish, dramatic, and engaging story with plenty of flair and emotional resonance. It easily remains one of the best of Netflix's original shows.

Feb 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Narcos: Mexico is still comfort food for crime-drama lovers, but there are additional spices for extra kick. Those who indulge will once again be seduced into binging rather than savoring this juiced-up course.

Feb 19, 2020 | Full Review…

This show is more addictive than Felix's product.

Feb 18, 2020 | Full Review…

Cartel dramas like Narcos are fairy tales for a nation in decline, flattening diverse and complicated countries for the benefit of a nation that refuses to acknowledge the havoc it has wreaked on the world.

Feb 18, 2020 | Full Review…

Narcos: Mexico season two feels more like a docudrama than a drama - just one without captions to tell you who everyone is...

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

This second season of Narcos: Mexico... is perhaps the the harshest, the most violent, and the most pertinent yet.

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

What makes it endlessly intriguing is the way it mixes history and intricate character development.

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Though it wanders in its middle episodes, Narcos: Mexico remains a finely written drama that loves to wow us with facts and maps even more than twists born from violent turns (which are, nevertheless, exceptionally effective).

Audience Reviews for Narcos: Mexico: Season 2

  • Apr 03, 2020
    Narcos continues to fascinate me, it's very much similar to Game of Thrones in the sense that there are so many pieces being moved around and vying for power. I thoroughly enjoyed season 2 and Diego Luna was outstanding!
  • Mar 31, 2020
    As they add more fictional characters, it takes away the feel of authenticity that the previous seasons had.
  • Mar 26, 2020
    Well produced. Well written. Solid acting. Maintaining the standard set in earlier seasons.
  • Mar 05, 2020
    Epic and sweeping, builds on the first season and spreads its wings to be one of the best shows in recent years. Fingers crossed for a third season.
  • Mar 03, 2020
    A very good second season! A boss has fallen; Mexico cartels in a new season; Maybe we will get the rise of El Chapo; A good sequel series nonetheless!
  • Mar 01, 2020
    Season 2 is pure cringe. Forced stronk female characters that are utterly badly written, boring plot, Felix spends 99% of the screen time gazing into distance, agents are annoying and feel more like pests than heroes or antiheroes. The show is ruined i honestly doubt that even a good season 3 could redeem and save it, but judging by the unpaid reviews, there isn't gonna be season 3. The only mistake was not killing it after the first season. What a waste of time this has been.
  • Feb 29, 2020
    Truly compelling TV. I've always wondered how an entire Country can become a corrupt Narco run State. While fictional, Narcos México provides a glimpse as to how it happened. They really do find the finest actors in Mexico, and it show in this well made series.
  • Feb 29, 2020
    Loved it! Things really took an unexpected turn at the end, but however it definitely wasn't as action packed as season 1
  • Feb 28, 2020
    This is even better than season 1, superb scenery and camera work, a visual feast. Cast is uniformly excellent. Binging on this, so hope there will be more Narcos series.
  • Feb 28, 2020
    I loved every minute of this season...Original Narcos seasons revolves around the prolific Escobar and then onto the Cali cartel, but I honestly think Mexico season 2 was the best one yet. The cast were incredible, both American and the Mexican cast. Fantastic writing, ace cinematography all in all true masterpiece!
