Among the mass audience, Narcos has received enormous praise from viewers and at one point, was one of the most talked-about Netflix series with its amazing photography, script and brilliant portrayal of the Legendary Escobar by Wagner Moura who delivered probably the best acting display of his career.
Chris Brancato, the original Narcos season 1 show-runner was replaced by Adam Fierro which caused a stir whether the new show-runner would be able to recreate the mystical moments which were seen in the first season of the much critically acclaimed series.
Narcos Season 2 : Doubts regarding the timeline of Escobar’s life
Season 1 of the show spanned almost a decade in telling its story, with years sometimes passing between chronological episodes. However, due to where season 1 ended in regards to Escobar’s actual timeline, Narcos season 2 only has a relatively short period of time to focus on, ranging roughly from Escobar’s escape from La Catedral in 1992 to his death on the rooftops of Medellín in 1993.Unless of course Narcos’ storyline continues on after Escobar’s death and Narcos pivots to telling the story of law enforcement’s continued wars with the other cartels, especially the Cali Cartel. This cartel is already featured on the show and undoubtedly will be playing a major role in season 2 as the two cartels fight for control of Colombia.

The trailer of the second season of Narcos packs in quite a punch. In a way only Escobar can pull off with style.
As already seen win season one, Pablo Escobar’s Character is the one who made rules in Columbia. He was even sentenced to his own luxury prison after being convicted for god’s sake.
How much doubt can one have regarding his capabilities?
