Narcos: Mexico is coming back for Season 3 with a bang, and Netflix has released the first trailer to welcome us back to this world. The arrest of Felix (Diego Luna) has set the table for other cartels to emerge. Both new and familiar groups will look to dominate the space in the upcoming season of the biographical drama. The new trailer puts this conflict front and center. Now that Tijuana has been claimed by the Guadalajara cartel, Juarez is set to be a major locale for the season. However, just who is lucky enough to claim the city is yet to be seen. The third and final season of Narcos: Mexico premieres November 5 on Netflix.
While Luna will step away from the series, many other series regulars will reappear in the series. Scoot McNairy, José María Yázpik, Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Hermosillo, Matt Letscher, Manuel Masalva, Alejandro Edda, and Gorka Lasaosa will reprise their roles alongside an exciting cast of newcomers.
Luis Gerardo Méndez joins the regular cast as Victor Tapia, a cop who finds himself in a moral dilemma between his duties and his fascination for the cartels. Alberto Guerra as drug trafficker Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada and Luisa Rubino as journalist Andrea Nuñez will also appear regularly throughout the season’s ten-episode run. Rapper Bad Bunny will also guest star as Arturo “Kitty” Paez, a member of the Narcos Juniors gang.
Andrés Baiz, Alejandra Márquez Abella, Luis Ortega, Amat Escalante, and Wagner Moura will lend their directing talents to the season. Carlo Bernard returns as showrunner and writer, with Sidonie Dumas, Christophe Riandee, Nicolas Atlan, José Padilha, Doug Miro, Andrés Baiz, and Eric Newman serving alongside him as executive producers. With all of this talent on and behind the screen, fans can expect a thrilling new season.
