Narcos Renewed Season 2

TVLine Items: Narcos Renewed, Colbert to Go Long, Mighty Spinoff and More

It seems Netflix is already hooked on Narcos.

Less than a week after the series’ debut, the streaming giant has renewed its ’80s-set drug drama for a second season.

Narcos stars Brazilian actor Wagner Moura as real-life drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, who ran Colombia’s violent Medellín Cartel. Pedro Pascal (who co-stars as Mexican DEA Agent Javier Peña) shared the renewal news on Instagram:

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Fierro (The Shield) will take over as showrunner in Season 2, replacing Chris Brancato (who  next will oversee ABC’s midseason biblical drama Of Kings and Prophets).

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* The Late Show With Stephen Colbert‘s Sept. 8 series premiere will run long, airing from 11:35 pm to 12:44 am, CBS announced Thursday. The Late Late Show With James Corden will follow from 12:44 am to 1:44 am.

* Beginning Monday, Sept. 28, ABC Family will air Last Man Standing reruns on weekdays from noon to 2 pm. Boy Meets World reruns will now air at 11 am, bumping Gilmore Girls — which will soon be in syndication on Up TV — off the cabler’s schedule completely.

* Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), Chris Lowell (Private Practice) and Angélica María (Qué Bonito Amor) have joined the cast of Graves, EPIX’s upcoming political satire about a former U.S. president (Nick Nolte, Gracepoint) who tries to right the wrongs of his administration 25 years after leaving office. Astin will play Isaiah Miller, the titular ex-president’s neurotic assistant; Lowell will play Jeremy Graves, the former POTUS’ underachieving son; and María will play Ramona Alvarez, the wry housekeeper who has worked for President Graves since before he was elected.

* Disney XD has greenlit Lab Rats: Elite Force, a spinoff merging Lab Rats: Bionic Island with Mighty Med. The premise: After the Mighty Med hospital is destroyed by villains, Kaz, Oliver and Skylar join forces with Chase and Bree to form an “elite force.”

    Replacing Gilmore Girls with Last Man Standing? Really ABC Family?

    WOW!! I’m surprised that CBS is going to extended the premiere of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for 9 more minutes right up until 12:44 am or 12:46 am. Hope the rest should be until 12:35 am or 12:37 am followed by The Late Late Show with James Corden. I’m so excited CBS is now starting to shake up late night TV and Fallon and Meyers better watch out for real competition.

    Nooooo! What the crap is UPTV? What are you doing to my Gilmores? That is my lunch break!

      You probably don’t want to know what UP TV will do to “Gilmore Girls” since they are a religious channel they refuse to show certain episodes of TV shows due to content. Back when I had cable there were at least 20 episodes of “Judging Amy” they never aired that had to do with abortion, molestation, etc. They even skipped episodes of “Family Ties” specifically the one that dealt with Mallory’s creepy “uncle” kissing her. Weirdly they also skipped episodes of “Touched by an Angel”. They also cut out any curse words and I do mean any so don’t expect to hear “damn” or “hell” on there unless it’s specifically talking about heaven or hell.
      Actually it might be fun to watch one or two to see how horribly they edit it.

      • Steven says:

        Hearing Maxine on Judging Amy yell things like “What the Heck!” and “Gosh Darn it!” is so annoying and badly edited. They try way too hard to make everything PC.
