We got a teaser-look at the third season of Narcos a few weeks back, but now Netflix has officially released the full-length trailer. Here it is:
The trailer primarily focuses on life after Pablo Escobar. As agent Javier Peña (played by Pedro Pascal) says in the trailer, “cocaine cartels are about succession.” So, now it’s time for the Cali Cartel to step up. The trailer seems to tell that the third season will probably have the same themes as the first two – violent, bloody, dark and whole lot of cocaine.
The official synopsis for season 3 as follows:
Now that the bloody hunt for Pablo Escobar has ended, the DEA turns its attention to the richest drug trafficking organization in the world: the Cali Cartel. Led by four powerful godfathers, this cartel operates much differently than Escobar’s, preferring to bribe government officials and keep its violent actions out of the headlines. Just as Gilberto announces a bold plan to walk away from the business, DEA agent Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal) enlists the help of American and Colombian law enforcement to take it down. This season opens up a complex and ruthless world of new figures. This time around, all rules have changed for the narcos and their opponents – a fact many won’t realize until it’s too late.
Other new players this season include Jorge Salcedo (Matias Varela), Cali’s head of security who prioritizes his wife and kids’ protection over his bosses; DEA agents Chris Feistl (Michael Stahl-David) and Daniel Van Ness (Matt Whelan), who enter the operation with enthusiasm and inexperience; Franklin Jurado (Miguel Angel Silvestre)- the cartel’s money launderer who unknowingly puts his wife, Christina (Kerry Bishe) in mortal danger and David Rodriguez (Arturo Castro), Miguel’s oldest son, who is reluctant at first to take a leading role in the cartel structure.
“To take down the gentlemen of Cali, you’d have to be crazy, stupid, brave, and lucky all at the same time.”
Pedro Pascal returns as DEA Agent Javier Peña, with this season also featuring Damian Alcazar, Francisco Denis, Alberto Ammann, Pepe Rapazote, Matias Varela, Michael Stahl-David, Matt Whelan, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Kerry Bishe, and Arturo Castro.
José Padilha and Eric Newman executive produce the show, which is produced by Gaumont International Television for Netflix. There are at least two more seasons of Narcos left, because Netflix renewed it through season 4 last September.
Narcos season 3 debuts on Netflix on September 1, 2017.
