Narcos season 2 trailer- it's going to get bloody

The first season of Netflix's Narcos was all about the attempt to bring Pablo Escobar to justice. Season 2 is about bringing him down by any means necessary. Things are going to get bloody.

There was plenty of political and police stuff in the first season of Narcos but it would be fair to say that Wagner Moura's vivid take on Escobar stole the show. It doesn't hurt when the truth is so absolutely insane that it's almost impossible to believe, but this all really happened.

Those episodes flew through a number of years during the rise and imprisonment of the storied drug dealer and we already find ourselves in the 90s as season 2 starts. That doesn't leave us with a whole bunch of time before the inevitable happens (if you know what we mean) but we're sure they'll manage to pack the season full of drama and violence.

Will there be a third season? We'll have to just wait and see. Narcos season 2 is on Netflix on the 2nd of September, 2016.
