On Thursday night Univision and Story House Entertainment held a west coast premiere screening for season two of their boundary-breaking series “El Chapo” during PaleyFest LA.
“El Chapo” cast members and creators including Marco de la O (Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzman) and Humberto Busto (Don Sol) as well as Daniel Posada (Producer) and Camila Jimenez Villa (Story House Entertainment) participated in a Q&A with the audience moderated by local Univision anchor Yarel Ramos.
Over the course of three seasons, the ripped-from-the-headlines drama explores the life story of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman over a span of three decades–from 1985, when he was a low-level member of the Guadalajara Cartel, his rise to power as the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel and his ultimate downfall.
Season two kicks off with Chapo’s first prison break and goes on to reveal the critical role corrupt government officials play in aiding El Chapo’s rise over his rival cartel bosses. Viewers will also begin to see how his quest to become the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, the most powerful criminal organization in the world, impacts the lives of those closest to him–including his family.
Season two of “El Chapo” premieres Sunday, September 17 at 8PM ET/PT on Univision Network, and will be available to Netflix subscribers at a later date. Additionally, the series will continue to break boundaries by airing episodes with English subtitles, a first for the No. 1 Spanish-language network.
“El Chapo” is the first co-production between Netflix and Story House Entertainment, the content development and production unit of Fusion Media Group (FMG). Season two will debut globally on Netflix at a later date to be announced.
