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.

Narcos: Mexico: Season 2 Videos

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 (11) | 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.

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

Feb 14, 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…

This show is more addictive than Felix's product.

Feb 18, 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…

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).

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 9.2/10 | Full Review…

It's a violent, bloody showcase, one where you get to know these characters so well as they march toward hell.

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

At its best, Narcos: Mexico recalls The Godfather Part II, with Gallardo recalling Michael Corleone. His success backs him into a lonely corner because his ambition outlasts his intimate relationships. And his most intriguing relationship is with Mexico.

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

So much of 'Narcos: Mexico' is built on the brazen violence of it all, but it's the blatant corruption that's just as grimly compelling.

Audience Reviews for Narcos: Mexico: Season 2

    Once again, Narcos doesn't dissapoint. This true to life drama continues to grab me year after year. The storylines definitely come from a place where truth is stranger than fiction, and the strength of the acting of all of the cartel leaders carries the show. The only reason I don't give it a 5 out of 5 is the use of the fictional Walt Breslin to try and thread together the US response.

    I'm still hooked on this show, I really enjoyed them laying the ground work on El Chapo this season. It'll be fascinating to see him grow into the kingpin himself. Season 2 is still edge of your seat and full of action. It really hammers home the point that the war on drugs will never end and the government will never win it.

    This show is captivating! The fact that it follows a true story is crazy enough. I usually can't watch shows with subtitles, but this show has me hooked. I have been watching since the original season and it is a true masterpiece. All of the acting, the special effects, etc keep you on the edge of your seat. Every season that comes out, I can't help but to binge watch it. You don't have to be into drug smuggling to enjoy this show, as it's great for anyone who likes a good drama. It has a lot of violence but that's to be expected of a storyline following a drug cartel. I highly recommend this TV show as well as the original!!

    An amazing series that gets you rooting for the bad guys.

    Slow, uninteresting plot, mixed delicately with lackluster action. What do you get? The worst season of Narcos.

    So well done; the writing, acting, visuals; all around great. Feels more like a movie production than a TV series.

    The prefect follow-up to an already excellent first season, Narcos: Mexico once again proves it's just as good as the Original run. And Diego Luna adds even more depth and layers into his compelling, artfully nuanced performance as the Godfather of Mexican Cartels.

    Great serie with a lot of natural actors and a very interesting story plot. Some historical and factual inaccuracies and too much weight to the marginal role of the DEA. Great one strongly recomended

    This season was very disappointing. They completely rushed everything! The show is gonna end quicker than everyone wants it to. The fact they started the part on tunnels and separating everyone from the main leader, very bad! At this rate the show will be over in 3 seasons (especially if they rush next season "AGAIN").
