On November 5, Netflix dropped the long-awaited third season of “Narcos: Mexico,” consisting of 10 episodes. And it’s been announced that the show will call it quits after the most recent season, according to the show’s co-creator Carlo Bernard (via The Hollywood Reporter). The new season picks up where Season 2 left off — the arrest of Felix Gallardo (Diego Luna). Luna doesn’t return for Season 3, but Gallardo’s legacy lives on through the other characters representing the drug bosses who took on the business. It’s clear that fans have been waiting for new episodes, as the show is in the Top 10 most popular Netflix picks in the U.S. The show is doing pretty well on Rotten Tomatoes, with positive reviews from critics and at-home viewers.
“Narcos: Mexico” Season 3 is all about the expansion and globalization of the drug war. The operation goes from independent farmers and dealers doing business to massive regions of Mexico forming cartels and stretching their reach. The show focuses on the Juarez, Tijuana, and Sinola cartels and the bosses who follow in Gallardo’s footsteps. The final season also features some new faces, including a cameo appearance from Puerto Rican hitmaker Bad Bunny (via Newsweek).
So if you’re looking for a good binge-watch that will have your heart pounding, watch the new season of “Narcos: Mexico” on Netflix.
