Narcos Season 3 (Recap)
Season 3 follows the DEA’s hunt for the Cali Cartel leaders in the aftermath of Pablo Escobar’s death in 1993. With Pablo no longer present, business for the Cartel blossoms, especially with the new markets in the US and elsewhere abroad. But then Orejuela takes a shocking decision that takes everyone by surprise when he decides to leave the cocaine business and focus on lawful dealings instead.
However, DEA agent Javier Peña continues to hunt down the cartel leaders with his partners Chris and Daniel. By the end of the season, with all the Cali Cartel leaders gone, Peña realizes that the trade has shifted to Mexico and watches as drugs are smuggled on a boat.
Narcos: Mexico – What You Need to Know
Narcos will hit the reset button once again. After 3 seasons of pre and post-Pablo Escobar stories, the show is heading over to Mexico for a new angle. It’s not a reboot; the story has shifted to talk about a different kind of drug cartel and a whole lot of corruption. Netflix has confirmed that the series will explore the origins of the drug war by going back to its roots. It will chart the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s. If you’re not familiar with the cartel, it was formed in the 80’s in order to ship heroin and marijuana to the United States.
Michael Peña and Diego Luna will star in the upcoming series. It’s going to be a huge turn for the direction of the series, yet we’re psyched to delve into the depth of corruption that used to take place back then in Mexico. Stay tuned, November 16th is going to be amazing if you have Netflix.
