Netflix Reveals Premiere Date for 'Narcos: Mexico' Starring Michael Peña and Diego Luna

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming fourth season of the original drama series Narcos - now titled Narcos: Mexico.

All 10 episodes of the drama will debut on Friday, November 16.

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.

In addition to Peña and Luna, the drama stars Matt Letscher, Tenoch Huerta, Joaquín Cosío, Teresa Ruiz, Alyssa Diaz and José Maria Yazpik.

Eric Newman serves as showrunner on the new season. He executive produces with José Padilha, Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard.
