Netflix is ready for more Narcos.

The streaming service announced on Thursday that the historical drama would be returning for second season, as season 1 arrived in its entirety last Friday.

The 10-episode drama follows the real-life tale of notorious kingpin Pablo Escobar and the DEA agents – Javier Peña and Steve Murphy – tasked with tracking him down in the ‘80s.

Narcos stars Pedro Pascal, Wagner Moura, Maurice Compte, Boyd Holbrook, and Joanna Christie. The Shield‘s Adam Fierro is stepping up as showrunner for the new season, and is expected to executive produce alongside José Padilha and Eric Newman.

Season 2 of Narcos will presumably drop sometime in 2016. Fans can catch up with EW’s recaps, available here.
