Everyone is after Pablo Escobar in Netflix's new 'Narcos' season 2 trailer

Netflix has made no secret of the fact that Pablo Escobar’s death will be part of season 2 of the crime series Narcos, but knowing the outcome doesn’t take away from the suspenseful, action-packed story. In fact, the streamer has embraced the mystery of who actually killed the infamous drug kingpin, and that is the focal point of the latest trailer.

The preview kicks off with Escobar’s escape from prison and the aftermath of his renewed freedom. Life outside prison is clearly far from safe for a man with so many enemies, though. “Now that Pablo was home, everyone wanted payback,” we’re told during the trailer.

As history indicates, the threats to Escobar in the final months of his life were very real (hence his death), but the trailer really drives that point home. We see multiple groups with their sights set on him, including the DEA, the Cali Cartel, Los Pepes, and the Search Bloc. Each group seems to be working a different angle, and the preview is full of threats, shootouts, explosions, and heart-pumping action. As we’re told, Escobar’s “days are numbered,” and it looks like each one will be a battle.

Netflix also revealed new Narcos season 2 key art, a creative image that shows Escobar’s likeness formed in bullets. With a single bullet removed and pointing to his forehead, it reminds viewers of his fate, both in real life and the TV series. The accompanying tweet also alludes to his death and the question of who was responsible.

We all know Pablo dies. The question now is #WhoKilledPablo?

Narcos stars Wagner Moura as Escobar alongside Boyd Holbrook and Pedro Pascal. Created by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro, the series is produced by Gaumont International Television for Netflix.

Narcos season 2 hits Netflix on September 2.

8 actors who could play Abby in The Last of Us season 2
Abby stands in the rain in The Last of Us Part 2.

It's been only a month since the show ended, and audiences are already clamoring for more. If you’re recovering from the finale of the premiere season of HBO’s The Last of Us, chances are that you’ve never played the epic video game the series is based on. Or, perhaps, you simply can’t wait to see the live-action realization of the sequel story. Undoubtedly, Pedro Pascal’s Joel Miller had to make an impossible choice. No matter which side of the fence you stand on with regard to the moral alignment of the situation, Joel has blood on his hands.

Like any gritty survival journey, blood often begets more blood. Abby, an imposing protagonist from The Last of Us Part II, will be an ominous harbinger of dark days yet to come. Though just like the ethical grey area Joel often finds himself in, Abby is just as conflicted. As far as survival in a post-apocalyptic landscape, Abby is absolutely built for it. Any actress up for the role must have a commanding presence, but ultimately be capable of peeling back the layers of Abby’s complex world.

Shauna carries a tray of meat into a cabin in Yellowjackets season 2 episode 1.

The Yellowjackets season 2 premiere, titled Friends, Romans, Countrymen, picks up where the show’s first season left off.

In the past, the surviving Yellowjackets are still struggling to make it through a difficult winter. In order to cope with the increasing darkness of their reality, Natalie (Sophie Thatcher) and Coach Ben (Steven Krueger) have begun using the former’s daily hunting trips to put together a map of the wilderness around them. In case it wasn’t bad enough that Natalie’s hunting trips continue to produce little results, though, her lover and hunting partner, Travis (Kevin Alves), has also become consumed with trying to find his missing brother, Javi (Luciano Leroux). Shauna (Sophie Nélisse), meanwhile, has taken to talking to the corpse of her dead best friend, Jackie (Ella Purnell).
Clues in the present reveal Yellowjackets' past
In the present, Tawny Cypress’ Taissa still hasn’t fully come to terms with the severity of her renewed sleepwalking spells, while Melanie Lynskey’s adult Shauna spends most of the season 2 premiere trying to finish covering up her season 1 murder of her former boyfriend, Adam. In order to do so, Shauna and her husband, Jeff (Warren Kole), break into Adam’s former art studio, have sex, and then proceed to destroy all of the many paintings that Adam did of Shauna while they were together. Later, after jamming out privately to Papa Roach, Jeff helps Shauna burn all of Adam’s remaining belongings, as well as the journals she kept during her time in the wilderness as a teenager.

Sweet Tooth season 2 trailer: the next Last of Us?
Christian Convery as Gus in Sweet Tooth.

You may see the 10-year-old kid with antlers from Netflix's Sweet Tooth and think "that's a weird-looking show." And you would not be wrong, because Gus, the titular "Sweet Tooth," is far less bizarre than many of the other human and animal hybrids in the story. The series is based upon Jeff Lemire's comic of the same name that takes place in a world crippled by a pandemic. When most of humanity perished, the hybrids emerged at a rapid pace. But as seen in the new trailer for Sweet Tooth season 2, the remaining humans are still a major threat to Gus and his fellow hybrids.
