Narcos: Mexico is renewed for a third season on Netflix. The news was revealed by the show’s producer and ex-showrunner, Eric Newman, for The Hollywood Reporter.
Then Netflix published an official announcement.
With the confirmation, Collider announced another news for Narcos: Mexico. Wagner Moura, star of Narcos, returns to derivative as director.
The website guarantees that he talked to the Brazilian star in January 2020, at the Sundance Festival. However, he had to keep the information until the renovation of Narcos: Mexico became official.
In the main series of Narcos, Wagner Moura lived the famous Colombian drug dealer Pablo Escobar. The production was one of Netflix’s first hits.
Collider guarantees that the Brazilian will be director of two chapters of the third season. Other directors of Narcos: Mexico are Andi Baiz, Alejandra Márquez Abella, Luis Ortega and Amat Escalante.
Despite the information, the new year of Narcos: Mexico has no premiere on Netflix. Check out the platform announcement below.
The third season brings an important change in Narcos: Mexico. Newman leaves the role of head of the series, which is now with co-creator Carlo Bernard.
“I am grateful for the five years in Narcos and Narcos: Mexico and very proud of what the teams have done with these series,” said the producer to The Hollywood Reporter.
Narcos: Mexico starts following the drug empire of Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna). In the third season, the series moves to the 1990s, when Gallardo’s organization is dismantled.
The plot, therefore, will accompany the globalization of drug trafficking. In Gallardo’s place, other crime bosses are expected to emerge. Among them, El Chapo.
An important information is that Diego Luna does not return.
Narcos: Mexico has two seasons on Netflix, with the third without a premiere date. Narcos has three seasons on the platform.
