Netlflix's hit TV show "Narcos" isn't just about the drug war in Colombia. Its focus on the inefficient government structures and the pervasiveness of drugs not just in the South American country but in neighbouring U.S. makes for a tale that's grand in its magnitude. However, does this mean that Netflix will renew "Narcos" for Season 3?
[Potential Spoilers Ahead]
So far, the streaming network hasn't commented on the renewal of "Narcos." The show, which is based on drug kingpin Pablo Escobar's powerful and violent cocaine empire, will reportedly depict his death in the upcoming Season 2. Executive Producer Eric Newman said that they have recreated the scene of his actual death in great detail.
However, the series' music composer, Pedro Bromfman, said that the plot of "Narcos" is rather dynamic and could include a story that could continue even after Escobar's death.
Bromfman added that an integral element of the plotline includes the proliferation of drug cartels and the shift in power.
"As long as they [drugs] are illegal, and as long there are people interested in them, apparently there's no stopping it. Now it's in Mexico, but it did go around. It did go around for a long time," iDigitalTimes quoted him as saying.
Perhaps the upcoming season of the Netflix series will provide an exposition to that storyline. In Bromfman's own words, Season 2 of "Narcos" will depict Escobar's fall from power and the rise of Cali cartel, the drug kingpin's rival group in Colombia.
He added, "We start meeting a lot of new characters in Season 2, and we start understanding how the situation expanded from Medellín to Cali and everything that took place."
However, it would be interesting to see where DEA agents Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal) and Steve Murphy would fit into this.
"Narcos" Season 2 is scheduled to be aired in August 2016 on Netflix.
