Later in the season, according to the producers, the unit is then joined by special forces on the Guatemalan/Belize border on a separate mission where soldiers get lost in the jungle.”
The show’s creator, Tony Grounds said of the upcoming season: “There are drug runners working that border and smuggling the drugs across it so they’re in a dangerous situation – there are people who would kill them given half the chance because they feel they might have rumbled their drug routes.”
