The Netflix favorite takes viewers to Mexico in its fourth season.
As some of you may recall, in December of last year, a mariachi version of the Narcos theme song gave us a sneak peek into the upcoming season's creative direction, but little else was revealed -until now. Netflix has been generous and shared both the trailer and November 14th release date for the hit show's next season.
Shifting away from it's previous Pablo Escobar centered narrative, this new season is set in Mexico, and according to Entertainment Weekly, focuses on the rise of the notorious Guadalajara Cartel during the 1980s. With the change in location and storyline, comes the introduction of names such as Michael Pena and Diego Luna to the cast. The show's main characters appear to be Felix Gallardo (portrayed by Luna) an infamous crime boss well known for creating an agency of independent drug dealers, and ambitious undercover operative in the form of DEA agent Kiki Camarena (portrayed by Pena) who strives to dismantle Gallardo's organization.
In true Narcos fashion, the trailer promises a season jam-packed with action, drama, suspense and characters and events veering on the side of moral obscurity. One might argue however that the trailer does not preview the fourth season of the show, but rather the first installment of Narcos: Mexico. Either way, we know we're watching. Take a look at the trailer below:
