Netflix released today the first Narcos: Mexico trailer, alongside the release date.
On the new season – or first season if you count this as a brand new show – Diego Luna plays Félix Gallardo, the leader of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s. Michael Pena plays Kiki Camerena, a family man and undercover DEA agent who starts making some progress against the cartel but quickly realizes that he has underestimated the sophistication of Gallardo’s organization.
Here’s the official description of Narcos: Mexico:
Shifting away from Colombia, where Narcos spent three seasons, Narcos: Mexico will explore the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers. Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.
Narcos: Mexico arrives on Netflix on November 16, 2018.
