Netflix Renews 'Narcos: Mexico' for Season 3

Netflix has today renewed its original drama series Narcos: Mexico for a third season. Moreover, series co-creator Carlo Bernard has been tapped to succeed Eric Newman as sole showrunner for the upcoming season.

Set in the 90s, when the globalization of the drug business ignites, Season 3 examines the war that breaks out after Felix's empire splinters. As newly independent cartels struggle to survive political upheaval and escalating violence, a new generation of Mexican kingpins emerge. But in this war, truth is the first casualty - and every arrest, murder and take-down only pushes real victory further away.

Returning cast includes Scoot McNairy, José Maria Yazpik, Alberto Ammann, Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Hermosillo, Matt Letscher, Manuel Masalva, Alejandro Edda and Gorka Lasaosa.

Newman and Bernard executive produce with José Padilha, Sidonie Dumas, Christophe Riandee, Nicholas Atlan, Doug Miro and Andrés Baiz. Gaumont produces.
