Why Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico Was Cancelled – and the Possibilities of a Season 4

Narcos: Mexico season 3 premiered on Netflix on November 5 and the 10 new episodes are the final ones made.

Co-creator Carlo Bernard explained the show’s demise to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I saw this season as the birth of the contemporary world,” he remarked. “Bringing the show up to that point where we now recognize, for better or worse, made sense to me. The presentation was able to pull back the curtain and demonstrate how it all began and progressed.

“Not that other stories won’t be compelling in the future. But, thematically and narratively, stopping where we had given the world we live in today made sense to me. We never want to repeat ourselves.”

Narcos 3 Netflix

The first Narcos series, set in Colombia, aired for three seasons from 2015 to 2017. Instead of a fourth season, Netflix released Narcos: Mexico in 2018, concentrating on the growth of Mexico’s illicit drug trade.

The series followed DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Pea) as he investigated the Guadalajara Cartel commanded by Miguel ngel Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna), and Scoot McNairy as DEA agent Walt Breslin.

After Gallardo was arrested in season two, the third and final season focused on the bosses who took his position.

Narcos Mexico Season 3 Netflix

Since both Narcos and Narcos: Mexico had three seasons, the creative team could start a new Narcos instead of returning to the present tale in Mexico.

Bernard hinted at more Narcos in a Collider interview. “There are no plans, honestly, this is the end of the journey,” he remarked. “There’s nothing in the works, but the drug trade isn’t going away, so new variations are possible.

“For now, this… We felt like we were telling a story… thus it felt wonderful to end with season three in Mexico.”

A six-part limited series about Colombian drug queen Griselda Blanco, starring Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara, awaits the Narcos team, including Bernard and executive producer Eric NewmanAMY SUSSMANGETTY

Eight years of work with producer Luis Balaguer. A billion-dollar business was ruled by Griselda Blanco years before many of the most prominent male kingpins we know about, Vergara told The Hollywood Reporter.

Griselda Blanco, alias Black Widow, and the Cocaine Grandmother was a powerful cocaine trafficker in the 1980s, but she was not in the original Narcos series.

Catherine Zeta-Jones portrayed her in 2017’s Cocaine Godmother, while Jennifer Lopez is set to feature in a biopic titled The Godmother.

A Netflix synopsis of the new show says: “Griselda is the true story of a brilliant and ambitious Colombian entrepreneur who built one of the world’s most lucrative cartels. Blanco, a devoted mother, became renowned as the Black Widow for her deadly blend of charm and unsuspected ferocity.”

Date of Narcos Mexico Season 4

Sorry, we have bad news. No fourth season for Narcos Mexico. When Netflix renewed the criminal thriller series for a third season, they didn’t announce if it would be the last. Season 3 of Narcos: Mexico is set to air in September 2021.
