Rafael Amaya returns as Aurelio Casillas for Season 5 of "El Señor de los Cielos" on Telemundo. The Spanish-language network released a new trailer last night during "La Querida del Centauro 2" and it looks like it will be another smash. Casillas had been faking his death during the last season, but authorities now know he is alive and ruling the underworld. Not only that, but Aurelio is now breaking ties with his nephew and a war between cartels will surely be bloody. Also, Aurelio will reunite with his mother after she went into hiding. The series returns on Tuesday, June 20 at 10pm/9c. Watch the preview of "El Señor de los Cielos" below and tell us what you think!

"El Señor de los Cielos 5" will have new faces with Rafael Novoa and Emmanuel Esparza joining the cast. Novoa is a Colombian actor that has starred in telenovelas like "El Talismán," opposite Blanca Soto and "Pura Sangre," which was remade in México by Televisa as "Mañana Es Para Siempre" with Fernando Colunga in Novoa's role. Rafael actually had a small role in the Mexican production where he shared scenes with Silvia Navarro. Esparza is a Spanish actor that has taken his successful career to Colombia. Emmanuel has been part of projects like "La Pola," "Tierra De Lobos," "Mentiras Perfectas" -the Colombian version of "Nip Tuck"- and "Venganza," which is the Colombian version of "Revenge."

"El Señor de los Cielos" ended its fourth season with a major cliffhanger. The last episode of Season 4 had police break into Mónica's (Fernanda Castillo) wedding and as she was escaping authorities and trying to catch a helicopter, she was shot in the back. The last minutes had her asking Aurelio to take care of their son and audiences believe she died.

Earlier this year, Telemundo premiered "El Chema," the spin-off to the hit series. Some of the initial scenes take place on the aftermath of Season 4 of "El Señor de los Cielos." Rutila (Carmen Aub) talks about Robles and reveals that her friend is in a coma and fighting for her life. This means that Mónica is not dead yet and audiences will have to wait until the new season of the narco series to find out if she is able to get out of coma and survive to live another day.
