Just weeks after the real-life brother of the late Pablo Escobar asked for Netflix to pass him a cool $1 billion, the streaming giant has unveiled a fresh trailer for Narcos' extremely hyped second season. Spoiler alert: Damn near everyone feels like Pablo in this two-minute peek at the next chapter of one of Netflix's most treasured properties.
"It's all about Pablo on the run," Narcos star Wagner Moura told Chelsea Handler last month. "It's from the day Pablo escapes to his death." Wait. What!?! Did dude actually reveal this season's ending during a seemingly casual chat with Chelsea Handler?
Fear not. As Entertainment Weekly and others have theorized, Narcos could easily continue beyond season 2 as an American Horror Story-esque anthology series. So if that's the case, who should Narcos tackle next? All hype and wishful thinking points to El Chapo, though Netflix has remained completely silent about the future of Narcos beyond its 10-episode second season.
We can probably trust Netflix's instincts on this one, as the series' critical acclaim and remarkable timeliness is certainly enough to keep them in the Narcos business for at least a few more seasons. After all, they are the future. "It's Netflix, man!" Pedro Pascal, who plays DEA agent Javier Peña on the series, told the Wrap in May. "It isn't TV. It isn't movies. [Netflix is] the next thing." Hell yeah. More Narcos please!
Roberto Escobar, however, has different plans. "I don't think there will be any more Narcos if they do not talk to me," Escobar told Newsweek in early July. "You have to pay to play, and they are playing me without paying. I am not a monkey in a circus, I don't work for pennies."
Netflix has not commented on Roberto's billion-dollar request. Narcos returns Sept. 2.
