The news is out! Narcos: Mexico season 3 is officially returning on Netflix with Carlo Bernard as showrunner now. The second season of Narcos arrived on Netflix in February 2020 with an explosive change but the tale of the Mexican drug war has still to be seen.
Former showrunner Eric Newman in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter said, “As I always say we will go on as long as they let us and as long as the drug war rages- which as you know there is no end in sight.
But I would be lying if I said I hadn’t put quite a bit of thought into where would you go. I have always had a pretty fair idea of where we end up. That’s all about I can say about season 3. But it’s definitely something that we are actively discussing internally.”
“By the time we were to catch up with the present, it would no longer be the present. It would be sad chapters of a continuing story that would become the past. By the time we would get to 2020, we would have so much new material that would have regenerated and we could just keep going until it or we expire.”– He added further
Narcos season 3 Release Date
The first season of Narcos: Mexico came out in 2018 in November but the season took a bit longer to be released and came out on February 13, 2020. Now with the ongoing pandemic, we are not sure when season 3 will arrive on Netflix. In an interview, another cast member of the show told that they had started filming Season 3 way before the pandemic began. But then it was paused of course because of the international lockdown.
We are speculating that we will see Narcos Season 3 by the end of 2022 or 2023. However, to make any false guesses or promises would be wrong. So we should wait for the official announcement by the creators of the show.
Narcos Mexico Season 3 The Plot
Popular American crime drama television series created and produced by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro, Narcos Mexico is coming again on Netflix with its season 3. The show is about the modern-day drug war and focuses on Mexico’s illegal drug trade. The roots of this modern-day drug war have its roots in the time when Mexican trafficking was loose and disorganized. The show witnessed the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Gallardo took the helm.
The show takes a turn when a DEA agent Kiki Camarena moves his wife and son from California to Guadalajara to take a new post where he learns that his assignment is going to be more challenging than ever. As his intelligence is on Felix(Gallardo) he becomes more entangled in his mission which reveals a tragic chain of events affecting the drug war against it for years to come.
In Season 1, we saw how Felix became the head of the largest trafficking enterprise in Mexico from being an ex-cop. Season two begins with his downfall as he loses all his powers, his friends and all the freedom but Narcos has always been about more than one thing.
The pattern of the show has always been focusing on multiple things. We saw the show’s beginning with Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Cartel before moving on to the Cali cartel and later to Mexico.
Season Three is likely, to begin with, Amado Carrillo Fuentes’s rise to power. Anyhow Felix is intelligent enough to learn what will happen now that he is gone.
In the past two seasons, we have seen the drug lords falling from power. So we’re guessing that Amado’s downfall will be something else and will be inevitable but when and how that is going to be interesting to see.

The cast of the show containing returning members is: Scoot McNairy (Walt Breslin), Mayra Hermosillo (Enedina Arellano Félix), Matt Letscher (Jaime Kuykendall), Jose Maria Yazpik (Amado Carrillo Fuentes), Alberto Ammann (Hélmer Herrera aka Pacho), Alfonso Dosal (Benjamín Arellano Félix), Manuel Masalva (Ramón Arellano Félix), Alejandro Edda (Joaquín Guzmán aka El Chapo), and Gorka Lasaosa (Héctor Luis Palma Salazar).
