UPI News Service, 09/13/2021
Narcos: Mexico will conclude with a third and final season.
Netflix announced Monday that Season 3 will be the show's last. The season will premiere Nov. 5.
Netflix shared the news alongside a teaser for the new season. The preview introduces Luisa Rubino as the show's first female narrator. Boyd Holbrook, Pedro Pascal and Scoot McNairy narrated previous seasons.
"There are forces moving us, shaping our lives that we're not aware of," Rubino says in a voiceover. "My country was at war. A war that would change Mexico and drug trafficking forever."
"War spreads like fire. But no matter how fast it burns... the music keeps playing," she adds.
Rubino will play a young, idealistic and ambitious journalist whose mission to expose corruption brings her an even bigger story that she anticipated, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Season 3 will feature returning stars McNairy, Jose Maria Yazpik, Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Hermosillo, Matt Letscher, Manuel Masalva, Alejandro Edda and Gorka Lasaosa. New cast members include Rubino, Luis Gerardo Mendez, Alberto Guerra and Bad Bunny.
Narcos: Mexico is a companion series to Narcos, which had three seasons on Netflix. Both series are created by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro.
