Netflix Narcos viewers run a divide between those who know Pablo Escobar’s historical fate, and those spoiled by cavalier Season 2 promotion. Now, Season 2 bosses explain the Titanic influence on Season 2's surprising end, and how some lingering mystery might inform Season 3.
It’s a fine line to draw, between actual history and dramatized spoilers, but Netflix’s Narcos seems to have abandoned any and all pretense of a major date with destiny going down in Season 2. That said, the new trailer and poster pivot into a very different kind of mystery instead – who pulled the trigger?
Whether or not Pablo Escobar has a certain date with destiny lined up in the second season of Netflix’s Narcos, he sure isn’t getting there without a fight. Chaos descends into Colombia with Pablo on the run in the first full trailer for Narcos Season 2, ahead of its September premiere.
The history of Pablo Escobar has always been a finite one, something Netflix’s Narcos already barreled toward in its first season. It remains to be seen if Season 2 will complete the tale once and for all, but the first official photos from Season 2's September premiere have Pablo heavily on the run.
That time of year is upon us again, as this coming Thursday, July 14 sees the announcement of the 2016 Emmy Awards nominations, in a field that seems tougher by each year. Favorites like Game of Thrones hit new levels of spectacle this year, while newcomers like UnREAL and Mr. Robot could split the nominations wide open.
Anyone well-versed in the biopic would recognize that at least some details are inevitably fictionalized, but with Netflix’s Narcos Season 2 reaching a crucial juncture in the tale of Pablo Escobar, the late drug kingpin’s family wants to be sure they get it right. Escobar’s real-life brother Roberto wants to review Narcos Season 2 before its release, wanting to weigh in on its “validity.”
The first official teaser for Netflix’s Narcos Season 2 gave not only a premiere date, but also another red-letter day in history that seemed to confirm Pablo Escobar’s days were numbered. Now, star Wagner Moura confirms a deadly plan for the condensed second season, raising the question of a third Narcos season potentially rebooting.
Anyone watching the first season of Netflix’s Narcos had to wonder how far Season 1 would get into the story of Pablo Escobar without brushing up against his inevitable end, and it looks like Season 2 isn’t backing away from that date with destiny. Not only does the new season have a 2016 premiere, but our first teaser promises that Escobar has an expiration date.
Streaming markets are still evolving, between features available, tiered subscriptions, pricing and more, and Netflix, granddaddy of them all, will soon up their prices without a majority of customers realizing. Say goodbye to those grandfathered into the Standard Netflix subscription, as you’ll be forking over an additional $2.00 each month without realizing.
Pop culture has long made use of gang drama in prison storytelling, though Netflix Narcos producer José Padilha aims to explore its American origins. The prior Robocop director has partnered with The Messenger scribe Alessandro Camon for new Showtime event series The Brand, tracing the rise of prison gangs, especially the Aryan Brotherhood.
