The video starts off with the little, tiny lies moms tell to make us feel better about ourselves.

‘Narcos: Mexico’ Is Back For A Second Season: Here’s Everything We Know So Far

‘Narcos: Mexico’ Is Back For A Second Season: Here’s Everything We Know So Far

Since Netflix aired Narcos, the crime thriller retelling the rise of the cocaine trade in Colombia led by drug lord Pablo Escobar, the story has enjoyed indomitable success. After three seasons, Netflix and the show creators Chris Brancato, Doug Miro, and Carlo Bernard, created “Narcos: Mexico” a standalone story. Shifting the focus from Colombia to Mexico, the series tells the story of the Mexican drug trade all the way from the 80s down to what it is today. So, is there going to be a second season to the story? The answer is yes! 

Netflix announced the second season last year, just three weeks prior to the premiere of the first season. This upcoming season would make the franchise’s fifth installment. Little is known about the upcoming Narcos: Mexico 2 so far. There are numerous theories and speculations about what could possibly happen. So here’s all we know as of yet.

When will it be released?

Netflix hasn’t announced an official release date yet. The series first dropped in November 2018, and production on season 2 began filming in Mexico City last year—where the first chapter was also filmed. All three seasons of Narcos and the standalone series have ten episodes per season, so if we follow the patternseries are usually released around the same time of year, we could expect a similar premiere date for the next installment around November this year.

The Plot and cast

At the end of the first season, it was revealed that Scoot McNairy, the unseen all-knowing narrator, was an agent who will lead a task force to indict those responsible for DEA Agent Kiki Camarena’s death, which is set up to be the plot for season two.

It’s speculated that viewers would witness what happened after the death of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agent played by Michael Peña, who was captured and tortured before his death. The good guys in the DEA are expected to bring justice to the murder of one of their associates. And it’s been suggested that Kiki’s death would intensify the government’s war on drugs. 

“What occurred in Guadalajara gave beginning to the primary cartel. From that, others would observe. And the violence and cash and medicines, they simply fucking explode. It modified the DEA, too. Perhaps it woke us up, I don’t know,” Walt Breslin (Scoot McNairy) stated in the final moments of Season one, hinting at a possibly deepened war between the United States’ law enforcement and the drug cartel in season two.

Diego Luna and Scoot McNairy are set to return to the new installment of Narcos: Mexico. The cast will include Alejandro Edda as Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, Teresa Ruiz as Isabella Bautista, and Tenoch Huerta as Rafael Caro Quintero. It’s not certain if Alyssa Diaz will return to her role as Mika Camarena, the wife of Kiki. 

Depending on the direction the writers take Narcos: Mexico, the show could also see the rise of the Sinaloa Cartel in the late 80s as a result of Gallardo’s downfall after his capture and incarceration in 1989. 

Gallardo is currently serving his 37-year jail term in prison in Mexico for killing Kiki Camarena. The now 73-year-old said he was suffering from ill-health and wished to complete his sentence under house arrest. According to The Associated Press, Gallardo was denied the request. In a court ruling back in February of this year, it was decided that despite his advanced age, he was not qualified for release. 

Is there a trailer for season two?

We’re building an empire. Why stop now?

A post shared by Narcos (@narcos) on

Gaumont International Television, the production studio behind Narcos: Mexico, has kept the show under wraps. We haven’t seen any trailers for the upcoming season revealed. It seems like we will only get to see images from season two after the production wraps. Diego Luna has said that the filming is still going on, so all we can do is keep a close eye on his social media to spot a sneak peek. 

The show recently received a WGA nomination in the “Episodic Drama” category. Diego Luna also received recognition for his role as Felix Gallardo. The Mexican actor was awarded a Critic’s Choice Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series after the first season of Narcos: Mexico.

Going back to the roots of the modern drug war, Narcos: Mexico is set in a time when the Mexican trafficking world was loose and disorganized, run by independent growers and users. Throughout the show we will witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s with Felix Gallardo at the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. A tragic chain of events unfolds as the drug trade grows and governments declare war against narco-trafficking for years to come. Season one is available to watch now on Netflix if you’re down for a binge run before the release of the second installment later this year.

She Thought She Would Build Her Dream In The United States, But After Being Deported Tijuana Is Giving Her The Opportunity Of A Lifetime

She Thought She Would Build Her Dream In The United States, But After Being Deported Tijuana Is Giving Her The Opportunity Of A Lifetime

For those who migrate to the United States,  a chance to start over and to pursue the legend of the American Dream is vital to the years of hard work they will put into adjust and assimilate. Sometimes that dream is the grantee of safety. Other times is the ability to provide for one’s family. Whatever that dream is, it’s something that is promised to the people who come to the United States and it’s often what motivates them.

However, for migrants, the American Dream isn’t always so easily attained. Unfortunately, one’s status oftentimes impacts whether that dream is even accessible at all.

That’s what happened to one mother who was deported before she was able to achieve her dream of opening a Mexican restaurant in the States.

However, that didn’t stop her from chasing her goal and making it happen.

Back in April, Twitter user, Sergio Peraza shared a post on Twitter celebrating his mother for finally fulfilling her dream, now encouragement over the restaurant is making the rounds. Peraza’s mother always wanted to open her own restaurant but was deported to Mexico before she was able to make that happen. Instead of being discouraged, she pushed through the disappointment and made her dream a reality in her new home of Tijuana. Called Mi Lindo Nayarit, the restaurant specializes in Mexican cuisine.

Peraza even posted pics to hype up his mom’s cooking and they are all too tempting.

Twitter / @Sergiowtd

The restaurant’s menu offers such treats as huevos el Nayar, Caldo, tortas, empanadas, posole and all the other Mexican delicacies that we love to eat. The dishes Mi Lindo Nayarit serves are perfect for both tourists looking for a taste of authenticity and for locals who just want a yummy meal.

Peraza’s post about his mother’s restaurant quickly went viral, attracting over 5,000 retweets and twice as many likes. Of course, this resulted in lots of comments celebrating Mom and drooling over her food.

Some Twitter users wished the new restaurant prosperity and success in their business. The success doesn’t just impact Peraza’s mom. All the people working at the restaurant depend on it to thrive. Supporting small Latinx businesses are what the Latinidad is all about so we love this show of solidarity and appreciate its greater impact.

Others planned trips to visit the restaurant in order to support it.

The beauty of Mi Lindo Nayarit being in a resort town is that supporters can plan a vacay and support the restaurant during the same trip. Sounds like the perfect idea for any upcoming three day weekends we might have on our calendars.

The overall consensuses was that Mom’s culinary aesthetic can’t be beat.

If the old saying that we eat with our eyes first is true, then Peraza’s mom has us feasting for days on just these images. The helpings are huge, the food looks fresh and we can feel the love coming through from these tweets. It’s exactly what Mexican food should be.

Ultimately, it’s so wonderful to see this woman preserve through her deportation and see her dream come true.

With all the terrible news coming from the border and ignorance and hate that is consistently aimed towards migrants, we hope to see more stories of success like this one. Let’s support each other in our dreams. It’s only through that support that we can all prosper and grow. Sometimes all the love and validation we have given will manifest into some bomb Mexican food.
