"The return of Kate del Castillo and 'La Reina del Sur' to Telemundo is absolutely an event," said Marcos Santana, President of Telemundo Global Studios. "In the nine years since its debut, the impact of this hard hitting drama is still being felt today. Kate's star has risen even higher since the series' debut and having her back on board in her most iconic role is just the beginning. We are confident that its combination of international talent, an emotionally compelling and action-packed narrative, and the heightened production values of this global production all add up to a must-see entertainment experience for all audiences."

Shot on location in seven countries, the return of "La Reina del Sur" is set eight years since powerful drug trafficker Teresa Mendoza disappeared into the U.S. 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 and she will do the impossible to reclaim her throne as La Reina del Sur.

"What made 'La Reina del Sur' a success is the storyline," said del Castillo. A beautiful story about a woman who is an anti-heroine that fights for her life. This is a new 'Teresa.' It is her love for her daughter that is the strongest aspect of her continuing story. Now she's confronting all these people in order to get her daughter back. I'm amazed about what we've done with the new season. Fans around the world are going to be blown away. This is 'La Reina del Sur' reloaded!"
