Narcos: Mexico, a Netflix historical crime thriller, has taken over the mantle of its predecessor Narcos and has stayed a popular option among Netflix users. Season three of Narcos: Mexico is on the way, so what can fans of the show expect?
Narcos chronicled the growth of Colombian drug lords, most prominently Pablo Escobar, as well as narcotics enforcement authorities’ efforts to stop them. The show, which premiered in 2015, lasted three seasons. Similarly, Narcos: Mexico follows the same basic pattern as the first two seasons but moves north to the eponymous region of Mexico. This time creators show the emergence of the Guadalajara Cartel.
Here’s all we know about Narcos: Mexico’s third season so far for fans ready to start binge-watching it as soon as it airs.
Release schedule of ‘Narcos: Mexico’ third season?
As per etonline.com, Netflix released the third season of Narcos: Mexico on November 5 Friday. At that point, you will be able to view all ten episodes of the season finale on the streaming platform at your leisure.
Narcos: Mexico is one of a slew of high-profile Netflix series set to premiere this autumn. Dear White People, Sex Education, The Witcher, Cobra Kai, Midnight Mass, Cowboy Bebop, and Colin in Black and White are just a few of the others.
So far, what has happened in the series?
The first two seasons followed the fall and rise of Miguel ngel Félix Gallardo, a police detective who was one of the Guadalajara Cartel’s founders.
Gallardo, played by Diego Luna, brings together diverse groups into a unified operation that puts Mexico on the global drug map. DEA agent Kiki Camarena relentlessly chases Gallardo, played masterfully by Michael Pea, during the first season.
Following the assassination of Camarena by Gallardo and escalating conflicts between rival cartels, the Mexican drug market descends into turmoil, resulting in an all-out war.
Season 3 delves deep into the battle between cartels for control of the drug business. Meanwhile, officials have pledged to permanently dismantle the gangs.
Seasons 1 and 2 were mostly set in the 1980s, while Narcos: Mexico season 3 is centered in the 1990s when the drug trade attracted a lot more worldwide attention.
The storyline of Season 3 of Narcos: Mexico
Simply said, the final series seems to be destined for catastrophe. According to the trailer, we are approaching the 1990s, and “the world is changing” for drug smugglers.
It is very much an escalation towards chaos, but the plot is still in the early years of it, as per the former showrunner Eric Newman. Félix Gallardo has been sentenced to prison. The first tremendously violent chapter of the drug war began with the splintering of this entity he had established into these fiefdoms.
The plot is approaching the 1990s when things start to turn truly nasty because the glue that kept everyone together was no longer there, and the murdering begins.
Who stars in Narcos Mexico Season 3?
Scoot McNairy, who played DEA inspector Walt Breslin and was the storyteller in the previous two seasons, leads the primary cast. Season 3 does, however, introduce the show’s first female narrator, Luisa Rubino, who plays a journalist on a quest to uncover corruption. It remains to be seen if McNairy will continue contributing his own voice to the show’s captivating plot.
Amado Carrillo Fuentes, the boss of the Juárez cartel, is played by José Mara Yazpik, while Matt Letscher plays DEA inspector Jaime Kuykendall.
Mayra Hermosillo portrays Enedina Arellano Félix, Alfonso Dosal portrays Benjamn Arellano Félix, Manuel Masalva portrays Ramón Arellano Félix, Alberto Ammann portrays Hélmer “Pacho” Herrera, Flavio Medina portrays Juan Garca Abrego, and Benito Antonio Martnez Ocasio, nicknamed Bad Bunny, portray Everardo Arturo “Kitty” Paez.
Alejandro Edda portrays the legendary Joaqun “El Chapo” Guzmán, the Sinaloa Cartel’s founder. Héctor Luis Palma Salazar, the second leader of Sinaloa, is played by Gorka Lasaosa.
Facts about Narcos: Mexico
So far, the series has stayed mainly close to the events it is based on. However, the program does state at the start of each episode that it is a dramatization of the events.
This is a dramatization of genuine events. However, the producers claim that some scenes, people, names, companies, occurrences, places, and events have been fictionalized for dramatic reasons. As a result, it seems that certain liberties were taken.
For example, there was not a Walt Breslin. This figure is thought to be a combination of many actual-life agents engaged in Gallardo’s capture, but Kiki was genuine, as was his assassination.
The program’s depiction of the rigged general election in Mexico in 1988 was also substantially based on real events.
Several additional events are generally accurate, with minor deviations from the actual timing and presentation.
