Netflix’s Narcos is returning for a fourth season, but this time, things are a little different.
After spending the first three seasons centered in Colombia, the series will now explore new stories and characters in Narcos: Mexico. The new season star Diego Luna as Félix Gallardo, leader of a Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s. The series also stars Ant-Man’s Michael Peña as DEA agent Kiki Camarena who relocates his family and young son from California for a new assignment. On Wednesday, Netflix released the first images of Luna and Peña from the upcoming season.
Check out the first images below:
According to Netflix, “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.”
The drama is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix. Eric Newman is Executive Producer and showrunner. José Padilha, Doug Miro, and Carlo Bernard are Executive Producers.
