You haven’t seen the last of Narcos yet! The cartel is back with more drug trafficking drama on Netflix this November 2018. If you’re confused about the title, it’s because Narcos: Mexico is a relaunched version of the series. 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 along with a disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers.
“Drug war” is a very popular (and quite sensitive) topic here in the Philippines, so might as well indulge ourselves with a less stressful version with a fictionalized storyline. At least here, we know lives aren’t actually lost off-cam.
Here’s a 56-second sneak peek at the new country, new cartel, and new empire that awaits:
Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (played by Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers 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 unfolds, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.
Narcos: Mexico, which is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix, premieres globally on November 16, 2018.
