Narcos: Mexico is preparing for its final chapter.

Netflix’s drug cartel saga will end with the recently reported third period of Narcos: Mexico. The final 10-episode season releases Nov. 5.

The Mexico reset series will bring the Narcos franchise to its 6th season in general, as the cartel drama stays a top worldwide entertainer for the streaming monster among its original series. (Netflix doesn’t release traditional viewership data.)

Co-creator Carlo Bernard, leader maker since the Gaumont production launched in 2015, assumed control over the showrunner reins for season three. Past showrunner Eric Newman, who has a few upcoming projects at Netflix through his general deal, stays a leader maker alongside Sidonie Dumas, Christophe Riandee, Nicolas Atlan, José Padilha, Doug Miro and Andrés Baiz. “At the point when we started this undertaking — making a show in two dialects, in a country that had never seen this sort of production — it appeared to be crazy. In any case, Netflix saw its possible then, at that point and their confidence in us never faltered,” long-lasting manager Newman disclosed to The Hollywood Reporter in 2020 when the third season was renewed.

As recently reported, previous star Wagner Moura, who brought back his widely praised depiction of Pablo Escobar with a past Narcos: Mexico appearance, joins a rundown of season three chiefs that includes Baiz, Alejandra Márquez Abella, Luis Ortega and Amat Escalante.

At the point when the drug cartel drama returns, it will advance along the Narcos: Mexico timetable. A modest bunch of new faces join a returning cast led by Scoot McNairy’s starring DEA agent, Walt Breslin, and will get in Mexico after Diego Luna’s exit as starring narco, Felix Gallardo.

The season three teaser (beneath) uncovers something like one new twist: Narcos will have its first female storyteller in novice Luisa Rubino, who joins this season as a youthful hopeful and aspiring writer whose mission to uncover defilement brings her a much greater story than she expected. Past seasons have been voiced (backward chronological order) by McNairy, Pedro Pascal and Boyd Holbrook.

Set during the ’90s when the globalization of the drug business ignites, season three will look at the conflict that breaks out after Felix’s (Luna) capture. The official synopsis reads: “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-done only pushes real victory further away.”

The returning cast of series regulars includes McNairy, just as José María Yázpik (Amado Carillo Fuentes), Alfonso Dosal (Benjamín Arellano Félix), Mayra Hermosillo (Enedina Arellano Felix), Matt Letscher (DEA specialist James Kuykendall), Manuel Masalva (Ramón Arellano Félix), Alejandro Edda (Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán) and Gorka Lasaosa (Héctor Palma).

Altogether, nine series regulars were added for season three, just as a huge number of visitor stars. New cast individuals incorporate Luis Gerardo Méndez as Juarez cop Victor Tapia, Alberto Guerra as medication dealer Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, Rubino as columnist Andrea Nuñez and Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio “Awful Bunny,” who visitor stars as Arturo “Kitty” Paez, an individual from Ramon Arellano Felix’s pack called the “Narco Juniors.”

At the point when already addressing THR concerning how the Narcos: Mexico story would develop after prepare two, Newman prodded what’s to come: “You can look at season one of Mexico as consolidation of power, and season two as the erosion of it — and then what comes in its place is chaos. If you view the Mexican chapter of Narcos as an acceleration into chaos, the end of season two is very much where we become untethered. We’re hurtling out of control, and where it leads is our incredibly bloody present.”
