TEASER: Season 2 of Univision's "El Chapo" Returns in September
Check out the new teaser HERE, which gives a sneak of Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzmán's escape from prison and plan for revenge. Season one was hugely successful for the network, culminating with the finale episode reaching 3.5 million Total Viewers 2+, while also positioning Univision as the No. 1 Spanish-language network (Source: Nielsen, NPM, Sunday 5/21/2017, 9:00pm-11:00pm). In addition, the entire first season is now streaming on Netflix, who co-produced the series.
Season two of "El Chapo" continues to explore the life story of one of the world's most notorious criminals - from his rise to power and his ultimate downfall. The series marks the first co-production between Univision's Story House Entertainment and Netflix.
The series stars Marco de la O (Tanto Amor) who greatly transformed himself physically and mentally to play the Sinaloa cartel leader Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzmán; Humberto Busto (Amores Perros) as Attorney Conrado Sol, aka "Don Sol" (an important political party figure); Juan Carlos Olivas (180°) as El Güero (Joaquín's main partner); Alejandro Aguilar ("Rosario Tijeras") as Toño (Joaquín's main assassin); Tete Espinoza ("Wenses y Lala") as Chío (Joaquín's lover); Rodrigo Abed (Reevolución) as Amado (Mexican capo); Luis Rábago (Principio y Fin) as General Blanco (National Security Advisor); Cristina Michaus (El Tigre de Santa Julia) as Doña Esperanza (Joaquín's mother); Valentina Acosta ("Señora Acero") as Alejandra (Joaquín's first wife); and Juliette Pardau ("De Todas Maneras Rosa") as Graciela (Joaquín's second wife). 'El Chapo' is created by Silvana Aguirre Zegarra and Carlos Contreras and produced by Daniel Posada.
Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzmán, who has been accused by law enforcement of running the "largest drug trafficking organization in the world," long evaded authorities. After being captured by Mexican authorities in February 2014, Guzman escaped from a maximum security Mexican prison in July 2015 by crawling through an opening in the shower of his cell block that led to a mile-long tunnel to freedom. He was recaptured nearly six months later, extradited to the U.S. earlier this year and his next trial date is set for April 2018.
