Net­flix has made an

im­pact with its orig­i­nal se­ries in­clud­ing House Of Cards, Blood­line and Nar­cos, an am­bi­tious drama based on the ex­ploits of Colom­bian drug lord Pablo Es­co­bar and the DEA agents on his trail. While lead­ing man Wag­ner Moura de­scribes the first sea­son as an epic por­trayal of the drugs trade, he says there’s a shift in tone for Sea­son 2. “It’s more fo­cused on the char­ac­ters and how a guy like Pablo, that we are used to see­ing so pow­er­ful in the first sea­son, what is the break­ing point of a guy like that?” says Moura. “So we’re go­ing to see him in sit­u­a­tions that we never saw him in – emo­tional sit­u­a­tions. It’s ba­si­cally about Pablo on the run, but not only fo­cused on Pablo’s jour­ney.” With 10 new episodes ready to go, it’s a crime se­ries de­signed for binge view­ing.
