‘Matador’ Season 2 Announced by El Rey


El Rey’s second original series Matador was just renewed for a second season of 13 episodes before the first season has even aired. The announcement was made today at the Television Critics Association Summer 2014 Press Tour.

Matador is a spy thriller from writer/producer Roberto Orci, which follows the rise of Tony “Matador” Bravo (Gabriel Luna), a professional soccer player for the LA Riot, but while his antics on the field may wow, it’s all just a cover. Tony is really a undercover agent for the CIA and he will have to learn to navigate between those two different worlds.

From what I can tell after watching the first episode, the show is really meant to be a fun action/sports show which doesn’t take itself too seriously and it definitely delivers on that front. I enjoyed myself way more than I expected.

Matador premieres on Tuesday, July 15th at 9pm on El Rey.
