Diego Luna, Scoot McNairy Confirmed to Return to 'Narcos: Mexico' Season 2
The drug war on "Narcos: Mexico" is heating up.
Netflix has confirmed that stars Diego Luna and Scoot McNairy will return for Season 2 of the crime drama. Production recently began in Mexico City, though Netflix has yet to announce an episode count (previous seasons have clocked in at 10).
Luna will return as Félix Gallardo, the infamous leader of the Guadalajara Cartel. McNairy plays Agent Walt, the show's mysterious narrator who was revealed in the first season finale. He'll likely oversee Operation Leyenda, a large-scale response to the murder of Kiki Camarena's (Michael Peña) that evolves the DEA's tactics in the never-ending drug war.
Luna's participation in the second season was in some doubt, as he's starring in Disney+'s "Star Wars" series centered on his "Rogue One" character Cassian Andor.
"Narcos: Mexico" was recently renewed for Season 2, just a few weeks after the "reboot" season debuted. The show is already receiving awards recognition. Luna earned a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series and the show landed a Writers Guild of America nomination for the “Camelot” episode written by Eric Newman and Clayton Trussell.
