Since the series is based on true events, it is well known that the legendary cocaine kingpin was gunned down in Medellin, Colombia in 1993. Showrunner Eric Newman confirmed that the Escobar would certainly die in season 2. He told The Hollywood Reporter,"This will be the end of the Pablo Escobar story, so enjoy him while he lasts."
Newman explained, "The decision to be able to actually invest time spent with Pablo Escobar knowing that the end is near will allow people to experience it in a different way. We love Pablo. We don't love the man, but we love our character we've built and who Wagner has played so well. We want people to join in mourning him right away, because it's hard to say goodbye to him."
The synopsis of the show released by Netflix reads as follows:
The show chronicles the gripping real-life stories of infamous drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. Its gritty storytelling details the many, often conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in the effort to control cocaine, one of the world's most valuable commodities.
Narcos stars Wagner Moura as Pablo Escobar alongside Boyd Holbrook and Pedro Pascal as real-life DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña.
