There’s great news for those of us who spent part of the Labor Day holiday weekend binge-watching Narcos. Netflix just officially announced the critically acclaimed dramatic series has been renewed for seasons three and four. According to the very brief renewal announcement, Narcos executive producers José Padilha (Elite Squad, RoboCop) and Eric Newman (Children of Men) will return for at least two more seasons.

Narcos seasons one and two are currently streaming on Netflix. The series stars Wagner Moura as Pablo Escobar, Boyd Holbrook as DEA Agent Steve Murphy, and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as DEA agent Javier Peña. The cast also includes Joanna Christie, Paulina García, Paulina Gaitan, Martina Garcia, Leynar Gomez, Stephanie Sigman, Raúl Méndez, Damián Alcázar and Diego Catano.

The Season 2 Plot: Narcos chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the infamous drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. Its gritty storytelling details the many, often-conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in the effort to control cocaine, one of the world’s most valuable commodities. In the second season, notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar is on the run, with the Colombian authorities in relentless pursuit — and determined to put an end to his illegal activities.
