Netflix's Narcos had a gritty and engrossing first season that presents the world of Pablo Escobar and the Medellín Cartel in troubling detail. Fans of the show have been looking forward to a second season, which was originally slated for an August 2016 release date.

Now, developments in production may be putting that date in jeopardy.

For starters, Narcos is changing showrunners for the third time since season 1 was made available to stream. The first man at the helm, Chris Brancato, chose to work on ABC's Of Kings and Prophets instead, which left Adam Fierro to pick up where Brancato left off.

Back in December, it was announced that Fierro was also leaving as showrunner, leaving a gaping hole in his wake. Director/executive producer Jose Padilha returned with executive producer Eric Newman to comprise the show's writing team, but it seems that there will be no official showrunner for season 2.

Hopefully, this shake-up doesn't affect the release date because we're already waiting enough for more Narcos.
