The arrest of Felix (Diego Luna) has set the table for other cartels to emerge. Both new and familiar groups will look to dominate the space in the upcoming season of the biographical drama
Following the demise of Pablo Escobar in Season 2 of Narcos, the creators of the show are focusing the third season on the exploits of the Cali Cartel.
Tijuana has been claimed by the Guadalajara cartel, and Juarez is set to be a major locale for the season. However, just who is lucky enough to claim the city is yet to be seen.
Here’s the trailer:
The Netflix blurb 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-done only pushes real victory further away…”
