The third season of Narcos will premiere on Netflix UK on Friday September 1st, it has been announced.
Created by José Padilha, Narcos chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It details the conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in an effort to control the world’s most powerful commodity: cocaine. The drama series is produced by Gaumont Television and stars Pedro Pascal, Damian Alcazar, Francisco Denis, Alberto Ammann, Pepe Rapazote, Matias Varela, Michael Stahl-David, Matt Whelan, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Kerry Bishe and Arturo Castro.
In the show’s third season, now that the bloody hunt for Pablo Escobar has ended, the DEA turns its attention to the richest drug trafficking organization in the world: the Cali Cartel. Led by four powerful godfathers, this cartel operates much differently than Escobar’s, preferring to bribe government officials and keep its violent actions out of the headlines. Just as Gilberto announces a bold plan to walk away from the business, DEA agent Javier Peña enlists the help of American and Colombian law enforcement to take it down. This season opens up a complex and ruthless world of new figures.
