Queen of the South

Based on acclaimed author Auturo Pérez-Reverte’s international best-selling novel, QUEEN OF THE SOUTH season one told the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga), who was forced to seek refuge in America after her drug-dealing boyfriend was murdered in Mexico. Season two will follow Teresa as she transforms from a narco’s morra into the Queenpin we’ve been waiting to see. As she fights to ascend the throne, she will face many obstacles, including compromising her moral code, leaving behind her loved ones and confronting her one-time mentor, Camila Vargas (Veronica Falcon), who does not want to relinquish power. Unique to the mob saga genre, QUEEN OF THE SOUTH portrays strong women in typically male dominated roles. It shows the gritty, sometimes violent aspects of traditional drug cartel narratives, while balancing the satisfying tropes of a melodramatic, relationship-driven drama.
