Narcos: Mexico

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Season Premiere

Netflix’s most addictive series is back. Narcos: Mexico season 2 (the fifth overall in the Narcos franchise) picks up in the aftermath of Félix Gallardo’s (Diego Luna) men murdering DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña). Mexico season 1 narrator Scoot McNairy (Halt and Catch Fire) steps in front of the camera as Walt Breslin, the American sent to lead the “gloves-off revenge mission” that finds the walls closing in on Gallardo, even as he gains more power. “We look at Narcos as a cautionary tale,” showrunner Eric Newman tells EW. “When it went south in Mexico was the government realizing they lost control and created a monster. Where we leave season 5 is very much a ‘You broke it, you bought it’ message.” —Derek Lawrence

Love Is Blind

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Series Debut

Would you get engaged to someone you’ve never seen, after having conversations with that person for only a few days? That’s what Netflix’s latest social experiment reality series wants to find out. Love Is Blind is the perfect shot and chaser for anyone tired of The Bachelor franchise as singles form relationships in “pods” that allow them to only hear the voice of their potential significant others. The point? To see if love really is blind — take away societal and physical attributes like age, race, appearance, etc. and see if love blossoms anyway. After a week, whoever gets down on one knee and gets engaged can finally see who they’ve been talking to. The catch? They’re actually engaged — for real — and now have to get married in less than one month. It’s like 90 Day Fiancé, minus the green card and 60 days. Come for the drama, stay for the wild moment one contestant feeds her dog wine — out of her own wine glass. —Sydney Bucksbaum
