Season four of Netflix Original series Narcos: Mexico will land on the global streaming service later this year with what appears to be even more drug cartel fuelled mayhem from the new teaser trailer.
With Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) and Boyd Hilbrook (Steve Murphy) no longer front and centre of the series having departed before season three, the new batch of episodes will explore the origins of the modern drug war. The show will return to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganised confederation of independent growers and dealers.
Fans of the series will 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 30 episodes of the show so far have garnered mostly favourable reviews scoring an average of 8.9/10 on IMDb. A return to the prior decade is also sure to please fans. Season three picked up the story of Pablo Escobar’s empire chronologically in the 1990s, from where season two left off.
Narcos: Mexico will be produced by Gaumont Television with Eric Newman (Bright) as Executive Producer and showrunner. José Padilha, Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard are Executive Producers.
The show will premiere exclusive on Netflix on 16th November.
