Narcos Mexico 3rd Season
The synopsis reads: “Set in the 90s, when the globalization of the drug business ignites, Season 3 examines the war that breaks out after Felix’s arrest”
“As newly independent cartels struggle to survive political upheaval and escalating violence, a new generation of Mexican kingpins emerge. But in this war, truth is the first casualty – and every arrest, murder, and take-down only pushes real victory further away.”
Interestingly, the final series will see veteran showrunner Eric Newman step down, with co-creator Carlo Bernard taking the reigns. Having spent five years at the helm of Narcos and Narcos: Mexico, Newman spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the announcement:” When we began this endeavor – making a show in two languages, in a country that had never seen this kind of production – it seemed insane.
“But Netflix saw its potential then and their faith in us never wavered. Carlo Bernard is the first person I ever spoke to about this project, over 10 years ago, and I am extremely pleased to leave the steering of season three of Narcos: Mexico in his extremely capable hands.”
Several cast members will make a return for the final season including Scoot McNairy, Jose Maria Yazpik, Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Hermosillo, Matt Letscher, Manuel Masalva, Alejandro Edda and Gorka Lasaosa, while new talent such as Alberto Guerra, Luisa Rubino, Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio and Luis Gerardo Méndez will be added to the mix.
