    Excellent news.:up:

    There is also a showrunner change:
    I was not a fan of either of those shows. I killed Hunters after the first episode, and 12 Monkeys after the first season. But we'll see...

    Aw, man. They killed Brenda! I didn't see that coming. She brought fun to the show. I guess the guilt of Brenda getting killed because of Teresa's greed and stupidity is what spurs Teresa to become the drug queen.

    The one problem with this show is that the main character is the least interesting person in the show. Teresa is pretty boring and is played in a lifeless way by Alice Braga. Camila, Epifanio, the late Brenda, James, even Batman were more compelling characters than Teresa. She finally became interesting in the season finale.

    Guero's alive? Didn't see that one coming either.

    It's been so long since I've seen him, maybe the opening minutes of S1E1?, that I didn't even remember who he was.

    All in all, a very good first season. For a show that had little to no buzz, it did a good job acquitting itself. I'll be back for S2.

    This show gets almost no buzz but it's become one of my favorites. Epifanio and Camilla are an insane couple but at least they're not off the rails crazy like Lucius and Cookie on Empire.

    It's certainly picked up a lot this season. Teresa is definitely coming into her own now. That scene a couple weeks ago where the female cop was making her snort cocaine was intense!

    I really like this show.

    Rare to see so many strong female characters!

    I love this show. Each week moves so fast, and yes, the women are really the story here.

    I really enjoyed a couple weeks ago when Teresa met El Santo, and had her mind expanded. I also like how Don Epifanio and Camila love/hate each other. Adds a nice twist.

    I hope it airs long enough for us to see Teresa become the Queen of the South.

    I see where I chimed in on this thread last season, but I didn't say whether I liked it or not. Well, I love this show. Whenever I say the name Teresa now, I pronounce it in the Spanish fashion. I wish I was close friends with someone named Teresa, that would make it better, so I'd have a reason to say it. People don't know what to think when I just blurt out Teresa in Spanish.

    I love this show! Camila is such a great bad***! Howie, I secretly say Teresa in the same Spanish fashion in my head too. :D

    Very much enjoy the high percentage of Spanish content on the show. I wish I understood spoken Spanish a bit better so I could understand what they're actually saying without seeing it in captions. I can understand reading the Spanish captions, but I have a hard time understanding it when they speak.

    I had a hard time telling Guero (another great name) and James apart at first, but this season took care of that. :)

    Sounds like I need to catch up. I've only watched the first episode of S2 so far.

    This is a show, like Billions*, that got much better in its second season. The stories move, are tighter, more interesting. Less extraneous BS.

    * nothing like Billions, just that both became much better in S2.

    Renewed for a third season.

    So I guess we're about to see Teresa turn into the Queen of the South. She's going to Dallas to get what's hers.

    Love Pote, what a great character.

    I'm happy this show will be back for another season. I don't know how Teresa becomes a drug queen pin next season. Seems like she has a lot more work still to do.

    I'm surprised they killed off Epifanio. Who is Camila going to argue with next season? Will Isabela join the drug game with Camila?

    I wish Pote was my bodyguard.

    The El Santo stuff was nuts, especially with the little girl. I won't miss them if they're gone in season 3.

    So Epifanio breaks Camila out of jail but she holds a public press conference after his death? Seems like an easy wy to attract the attention of the EPA.

    Sure seems like they're positioning Isabela to "turn bad."
    I second the Pote and the creepy little girl El Santo Stuff.

    Environmental Protection Agency? :p

    Funny. I don't feel guilty rooting for drug dealers on this show. Well, some of them.
