The Netflix original is back with a second season following a jam packed 10 episode debut. The hit program follows the rise and fall of the popular Colombian kingpin, Pablo Escobar during his Medellin drug cartel reign. Escobar’s name is now in the same category as other favorite kingpin television characters such as Walter White (Breaking Bad) and Tony Soprano (The Sopranos).
Even if you’re not caught up do not worry, there’s still time to catch up before season two makes its way to Netflix on Friday (Sept. 2). The question that looms is the mysterious death of Pablo Escobar. Season one ended circa 1992 and Escobar was murdered at the end of 1993, but the murder remains an unsolved mystery.
