Set to hit Netflix on September 1, season 3 of Narcos will follow the Cali Cartel in the wake of Pablo Escobar’s death. This new empire will pose a different threat to Pedro Pascal’s returning DEA agent Javier Pena. Turns out a more subtle, low-key business model might work better than being a publicly brutal warlord. Who would have thought?
Narcos, which covers the Colombian cocaine trafficking business, has seen strong critical praise and nominations across multiple award shows. Season 2 was considered an improvement on its predecessor. We’ll see if season 3 can manage to improve again without Escobar’s considerable presence. Hey, it has Pedro Pascal. I’m sure it will be fine.
Starring along Pascal in the third season are Damian Alcazar, Francisco Denis, Alberto Ammann, Pepe Rapazote, Matias Varela, Michael Stahl-David, Matt Whelan, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Kerry Bishe, and Arturo Castro.
