The show’s star, Diego Luna has been confirmed to return as the Guadalajara cartel’s godfather and drug lord, Felix Gallardo. Scoot McNairy will also return as the show’s narrator, Walt.
According to Collider, the decision to begin filming a follow up so quickly could be influenced by Luna’s other role as the star of Disney’s upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One prequel series.
The show, originally envisaged as the fourth series of Narcos, was eventually developed as a sister show and premiered on November 16.
Earlier this year, it was announced that the show will be getting a video-game adaptation. “We’re looking forward to creating a game that matches the fantastic storyline and gritty action of the Netflix series,” said Curve Digital’s Brynley Gibson.
“We’re tremendously excited and have some amazing gameplay elements in the works that will please both fans of the show and gamers.”
