Netflix announced today that Narcos: Mexico has been picked up for a second season. The good news was announced on the streamer's social media accounts this morning with a short video touting the high critical acclaim the drama has receieved since its November release.

Originally intended to be the fourth season of Narcos, a new series based in Mexico was instead developed as a companion series that follows the true story of the Guadalajara cartel's ascent in the Mexican drug trade in the 1980s. Miguel Felix Gallardo builds his drug empire in Mexico, while determined DEA agent Kiki Camarena has moved to Guadalajara to take on the cartel's dangerous kingpin.

Look for Season 2 of Narcos: Mexico in 2019.
