Immigration has been a volatile political topic in the United States for decades, and it is still as polarizing today as it was then. “Coyote,” CBS’ gripping crime drama on Paramount+, may depict the issue’s complexity better than any other television show.
Michael Chiklis plays Ben Clemens, a Border Patrol agent who left after 32 years on the job and now works for a Mexican drug cartel as a coyote, or someone who smuggles people across the border.
Ben did things in Season 1 that he would have thought impossible before. Despite the fact that he had practically switched sides by working for a drug cartel, his new allies had reservations about him – and rightly so.
“Coyote” finished its first season on January 7, 2021, and since it’s been so long since fans have followed Ben’s exploits, one has to wonder if the show will be revived.
There’s no word yet on whether Coyote will make an appearance in Season 2
CBS has yet to announce whether “Coyote” will be renewed for a second season. Michael Chiklis has tweeted since the premiere of Season 1 that he “can’t wait to get back to work” on “Coyote” on March 13, 2021. That doesn’t rule out the prospect of “Coyote” returning, but it also doesn’t rule it out.
“Coyote,” on the other hand, appears to have a higher chance of being renewed than the ordinary television show. It was one of the main programs on the relaunched Paramount+ network.
“Coyote” was set to premiere on the Paramount Network, but CBS chose to move it to CBS All Access, the company’s subscription-based streaming service, in November 2020. (Image: The Wrap) CBS All Access was renamed Paramount+ on March 4, 2020.
Chiklis will almost probably resume his role as retired border patrol agent Ben Clemens if “Coyote” returns, as the show wouldn’t be complete without him. Some of the primary enemies, such as cartel head Juan Diego “El Catrin” Zamora (Juan Pablo Raba), may make a comeback.
Meanwhile, the plot is set to continue from the Season 1 cliffhanger. Ben’s participation with the Zamora cartel had already caught the attention of the CIA, and in the finale, he sold himself as a confidential informant for the spy agency.
Coyote’s Cast Season 2
Ben Clemens, a US border patrol agent who recently retired after many years of service, is played by Michael Chiklis. Juan Diego “El Catrin” Zamora, the boss of the little family cartel, was played by Juan Pablo Raba. Silvia Pea, played by Adriana Paz, is a manager at a local restaurant.
Kristyan Ferrer plays Dante, a cocaine cartel member. Sultan is played by Octavio Pisano, a narcotics gang member. Cynthia McWilliams portrays a federal agency Homeland Security Investigations agent. Julio Cesar Cedillo portrays Neto Mendez, a member of the Guardia Nacional De Mexico. Emy Mena plays Mara Elena Flores, who is pregnant with Dante’s child.
The Coyote’s Adventures
The protagonist of the tale is Ben Clemens, a recently retired US Customs and Border Protection agent. After 32 years as a CBP agent, he was ready to do something unthinkable: he was about to assist those whom he had violently and unwillingly kept away from borders.
Because he is a member of anything illegal, he was on the opposite side of the wall in both directions. The first is by his physical intrusion, and the second is through his questioning of morals and ethics. He is a reliable officer who has taken part in countless operations, yet he has never heard any true stories. The black and white of civilization was put out in front of him.
He betrays his oath of being an honest person in his position of duty. He finds himself in a scenario that he had not foreseen. When he saw Maria Elena’s tattoo, which was similar to his daughters’, he was completely affected.
Maria Elena’s father chooses suicide to protect his daughter from being gang-raped by a local gang. After receiving a call from one of his thugs in his sleeping daughter’s bed, Ben decides to work for drug and human trafficking leader Juan Pablo Raba.
The group sets off on a voyage where they grow increasingly conscious of the brutality of Mexican and American criminals. Meanwhile, Ben is dealing with his own issues. The plot twists and turns as their backstories are exposed via flashbacks.
To make an intriguing storyline, numerous story plots intersect with various subplots. The first two episodes, directed by Michelle McLaren, set the tone for the rest of the series. There are several layers, with black and white characters, or what is described as a grey shade of characterization.
What Do We Know in Season 2 of Coyote?
Season 1 of Coyote had a bumpy road to release, as it was moved from Paramount Network to CBS All Access. Although the episode was entertaining, there are plenty of other criminal dramas to choose from.
Second, because the show has the potential to be popular based on viewership, it will be revived for a second season. To do so, the production company must look at the show’s popularity statistics and see if it has gained critical acclaim.
There have been no announcements for the second season, but as the show’s popularity develops, we may be able to see filming for the second chapter in the middle of this year. CBS All Access had a lot of success with the Star Trek series and Big Brother.
This show may return for a second season, although that is yet to be determined. Because the program hasn’t gained much notice yet and the plot has already been covered multiple times, we may have to wait a little longer. However, it will be fascinating to see what plot concepts they come up with. Coyote season 2’s release date is unlikely to be confirmed anytime soon.
