The Netflix Spanish-language drama Ingobernable (Ungovernable) is set to return next year with a 15-episode second season.

The fictional series stars Kate del Castillo as Emilia Urquiza, a do-gooder accused of killing her husband, Mexico's president.

Del Castillo also made headlines after she was reportedly involved in arranging Sean Penn's famous interview with Mexican drug lord "El Chapo" Guzman.

After El Chapo's arrest last year, del Castillo claimed to be a target of government spying and intimidation tactics, and now she plays a character dealing with some similar issues.

In fact, Ingobernable is the first series to openly criticize the government's possible role in the real-life disappearance of 43 Mexican students, who are presumed dead. However, the fictionalized story refers to 39 victims. 

Mexico City-based indie producer Argos, headed by Epigmenio Ibarra, will return to produce the second season of Ingobernable, set for a 2018 release on Netflix.

"I'm very happy that the second season of Ingobernable has been confirmed, because there's still a lot to tell and new characters to meet," del Castillo said.
