What is the premise of El Senor de los Cielos?

Lead character Aurielo Casillas doesn’t seem to have a moral compass, but has also become incredibly charming and appealing to fans despite his moral indiscretions. The fictional series glamorizes the underground drug world and follows the emotional and passion filled life of Aurielo Casillas. Aurielo’s face is his own worst enemy and he undergoes plastic surgery to fix his “imperfections”.

In season two, the masses believe that Casillas died during his plastic surgery, but it turns out that he is alive and well, more powerful and dangerous than ever. He eliminates his enemies and extends his powerful drug empire to the rest of the world.

In season three, we find Casillas being held prisoner by the Mexican Navy in a bunker. He has been held there for three long months without even seeing the light of day. He has been tortured relentlessly by the Mexican navy for the names of his drug accomplices, but does not give up their names. Casillas is much more affected by the loss of his drug empire, his family, and his lovers than he is by the physical pain that he has endured.

What can we expect to see in season four?

There are rumors that season four will spell the end for Aurielo Casillas, and many of the promos thus far have featured death in the forefront of the plot. Seasons five and six have already been renewed though, so we don’t believe the death is necessarily imminent for Mr. Casillas. Who would take over the lead role in the following seasons if he were to die in season four? Anything is possible though!


is a new character lined up for season four, Gabriel Coronel. Rumor has it that Coronel will bring some serious sex appeal to the show! We lose Chema Venegas for season four, and there are rumors that the life of Rutilla Casillas is at risk.

What do you think? Will these prominent faces be alive at the end of season four? Can the show survive without them? Do you anticipate the arrival of any new characters?
