Narcos: Mexico Season 3 Release Date, Cast, and Everything you need to know

Narcos: Mexico Season 3: is set to return for a third and final season. Given what happened in the season 2 finale — Miguel Angel Félix Gallardo’s (portrayed by Diego Luna) arrest—we do not know for sure who will be the series’ next kingpin. In the first season of Narcos, Mexico followed Félix’s journey from Sinaloan ex-cop to the leader of Mexico’s biggest drug trafficking organization, which brought together several cartels into one system. In the second season of Narcos, Mexico chronicles Gallardo’s fall from grace as he loses control (and his freedom and friends).

According to, season 3 will focus on the power vacuum created in Gallardo’s aftermath, according to the official description. As newly independent gangs struggle to survive political uncertainty and rising violence, a younger breed of Mexican gang leaders emerges. But in this battle, the truth is the first fatality, and every prosecution, assassination, and take-down just serves to drive real victory farther away.

Narcos, on the other hand, was always about more than just one charismatic, troubled leader. Since its start, the program has changed its emphasis, first focusing on Pablo Escobar’s (portrayed by Wagner Moura) Medellin cartel, then the Cali cartel, and finally Mexico. Season 3 is all about identifying the future kingpin, and Amado Carrillo Fuentes (played by José Maria Yazpik) is our pick. His significance will likely to be increased in Narcos season 3 just like the previous seasons of Narcos: Mexico.

Here’s all we hear about Narcos: Mexico’s next season, which will premiere in November 2021.

A new narrator is introduced in the trailer

Narcos is told by an outsider who deciphers the cartel’s activities and organizational principles in each season. DEA agents Pedro Pascal, Scoot McNairy, and Boyd Holbrook have narrated previous seasons. Our new narrator is introduced in the first teaser trailer, and she defies expectations. Andrea Nunez (Luisa Rubino), a Mexican journalist, will be the narrator for the next season. Andrea is the first female narrator in the history of the program.

Third season of Narcos: Mexico is expected to hit theatres on November 5

The entire third season of “Narcos: Mexico” will be released on the streaming giant Netflix on November 5, 2021. There were 10 episodes in each of the previous two seasons, first one released on November 16, 2019 and the second on February 13, 2020. From August 2015 through September 2017, the main “Narcos” series aired for three seasons and 30 episodes. With all of this in consideration, the latest season of “Narcos: Mexico” will basically tie off a six-year criminal story that has spanned two series. There is no need to stress! 

On the OTT platform Netflix, two volumes of the series Narcos: Mexico were published. In addition, the forthcoming third season of Narcos: Mexico has been announced to be published on the same OTT platform Netflix. Narcos: Mexico is one of Netflix’s most popular criminal drama shows. It is expected that the narrative format of the previous two season will be continued in the third season as well.

Let us speak about the anticipated cast for Narcos: Mexico’s third season.

The cast of Narcos: Mexico Season 3

The cast of Narcos: Mexico Season 3 is anticipated to be announced soon. See the expected key casting below:

After the end of the second season, one of the major concerns hovering over the heads of “Narcos: Mexico” fans was whether Scoot McNairy And Diego Luna would back to take their places. We can expect that McNairy will return as DEA Agent Walt Breslin, in the first two seasons he worked as narrator. Meanwhile, Luna will not be reprising his role as Miguel Angel Félix Gallardo, owing to his obligations to the Disney+ spin-off series “Andor,” based on “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

  • Kiki Camarena is played by Michael Pena.
  • Rafael – Rafa – Caro Quintero (Tenoch Huerta)
  • Joaquin Cosio will portray Ernesto – Don Neto – Fonseca Carrillo.
  • Jose Maria Yazpik will  portray Amado Carrillo Fuentes.
  • Jaime Kuykendall is played by Matt Letscher.
  • Joaquin – El Chapo – Guzman is played by Alejandro Edda.
  • Fernanda Urrejola will portray Maria Elvira.
  • Isabella Bautista is played by Teresa Ruiz.
  • Gerardo Taracena plays Pablo Acosta.
  • Scoot McNairy plays Walt Breslin.

Most of the characters from the debut season of Narcos: Mexico are in prison at the conclusion of the season. At the conclusion of the first season, Rafa Caro Quintero (played by Tenoch Huerta) and Don Neto (portrayed by Joaquin Cosio) were arrested, while Felix and Isabella (Teresa Ruiz) were arrested at the end of the second. Aside from the obligatory Narcos cameo appearance, none of them is likely to have significant roles in the future seasons.
