I'm grasping at straws here...NBCUniverso is possibly starting to re-run the first season in blocks of 3 episodes weekly on late Saturday nights/early Sunday mornings*. I would like to think that they're doing this in preparation for Season 2, but who knows.
ETA: *starting on October 13.
Here are the facts:
-Zap 2 it shows "La Reina del Sur"at 10pm/9c starting Monday, March 4. It still has El Barón in the middle-of-the-night rerun spot.
-NBC Universo has been doing a rerun of the first series, which has 63 episodes. This weekend they showed 58-60, so next weekend should be 61-63. (typo)
I have not been able to confirm this in any other way. I suspect, if this is really the plan, that they'll start announcing it during tonight's La Voz. So, if you see anything that confirms this, let us know!
