Netflix just unveiled a new official trailer for Narcos: Mexico along with the upcoming season’s poster. The two and a half minute trailer, which has a Scarface vibe to it, reveals how season one will be exploring the birth of Mexico’s drug war.
The cast of Narcos: Mexico is led by Michael Peña as Kiki Camarena, “a family man and an undercover DEA agent who garnered valuable intel through a series of informants around Félix and his newly minted Guadalajara cartel, but quickly found himself in c as he realized he had completely underestimated the sophistication of Gallardo’s system.”
Diego Luna plays Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, “the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, one of the biggest narcos in the history of Mexico and the founder of the modern Mexican drug trade. Quiet but bold, inscrutable but sharp-minded, to all appearances he is a benevolent leader, loyal to his friends, associates, and employees…but his ambition comes before all else.”
This season will also feature Aaron Staton (Mad Men), Alejandro Edda (Fear the Walking Dead), Alfonso Dosal (Hazlo como hombre), Alyssa Diaz (The Rookie), Clark Freeman (We Go On), Ernesto Alterio (Cable Girls), and Fermín Martinez (Lady of Steel).
The cast also includes Fernanda Urrejola (Bala Loca), Gerardo Taracena (Apocalypto), Gorka Lasaosa (Brain Drain), Guillermo Villegas (Sin Nombre), Horacio Garcia Rojas (Texas Rising), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), and Joaquín Cosío (Quantum of Solace).
Netflix is set to premiere Narcos: Mexico on November 16, 2018. The season is executive produced by Eric Newman, José Padilha, Doug Miro, and Carlo Bernard. Newman is the showrunner.
The Narcos: Mexico Plot:
“Shifting away from Colombia, where Narcos spent three seasons, Narcos: Mexico will explore the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers. Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire.
When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.”
