The network will offer audiences streaming access for the first time, across both Telemundo and NBCUniversal digital platforms, including, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, as well as the Telemundo app. In addition, social-media platforms from sister networks and shows like E!, USA’s Queen of the South or Bravo’s Shah’s of Sunset, Mexican Dynasties and Imposters will also showcase the material.

“We see the high anticipation from La Reina del Sur fans as they continue to increase their social engagement with the brand,” said Karen Barroeta, SVP, Marketing and Creative, Telemundo . “As the premiere date draws near, this first act is a great way to give them a taste of what is to come, showcasing the amazing production quality and high-action viewers can expect from this series.”

During the first episode, audiences will be reconnected with characters from the first season of La Reina del Sur, as well as be introduced to some of this season’s new players, particularly Teresa Mendoza’s daughter Sofia, played by Isabella Sierra.

Shot on location in eight countries, the return of La Reina del Sur is set eight years since powerful drug trafficker Teresa Mendoza disappeared into the US Federal Witness Protection Program after bringing down Mexican presidential candidate Epifanio Vargas. Hers is now a life of total anonymity in Italy as ‘Maria Dantes,’ peacefully raising her daughter Sofia in the Tuscan village of Massa Marittima. However, her life takes an unexpected turn.
