Fans of the hit Netflix original series Narcos have a reason to rejoice. Not only is Narcos making it back this year but an actual premiere date is out. At the same time, we are blessed with an official trailer for Narcos Season 4.
You may know that Narcos 4 or actually known as Narcos Mexico is going with a new lead cast. Michael Peña and Diego Luna will head Mexico.
The first 3 Seasons of Narcos were shot in Colombia and were based on Colombian Cartels too. But this time around, as the official poster says, makers wanted to explore the epicenter of drug-trade- Mexico; This happened following the tragic murder of a location scout, Carlos Muñoz Porta. He was shot dead near San Bartolo Actopan.
Showrunner Eric Newman has claimed that Narcos 4 will explore the origins of the modern drug war and Mexico is the root of it all.
Narcos Season 4: Release Date
After focussing on Pablo Escobar for first two Seasons and the Cali Cartel for Season 3, Narcos will now deal with The Guadalajara Cartel. Narcos Mexico airs on Netflix globally on November 16. Diego Luna will portray the Kingpin of the Guadalajara Cartel, Felix Gallardo of the 1980s. Michael Peña will portray the DEA Agent Kiki Camarena, involved in chasing him.
Eric Newman says he always knew he was going to return to Mexico eventually. It just made sense for him to go back there. About Pedro Pascal’s return, we are assured that he isn’t going to be there.
Pedro quit Narcos after Season 3. In the show, he was done with DEA after learning some nasty secrets. Eric Newman, the showrunner spoke about Narcos Mexico recently. According to him:
“Past a certain point you realize that you shut down the Miami-Caribbean corridor where they were bringing all their cocaine in for years, and that cocaine is going to find another way in.
There is definitely a natural passing of the torch to Mexico, who at the time was already very successful as heroin and marijuana smugglers. It makes perfect sense that you would employ what they call the Mexican Trampoline to bounce cocaine into the States.”
