‘Narcos’ Season 3 Gets New Trailer & September Premiere Date
After the death of Pablo Escobar, people did wonder if that would be the end for ‘Narcos‘ too, but thanks to a question in the closing of the Season 2 finale, it became clear where things would go with Season 3 – “Agent Peña, how much do you know about the Cali Cartel?”
Now that the bloody hunt for Pablo Escobar has ended, the DEA turns its attention to the richest drug trafficking organisation 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.
Whilst his partner for 2 seasons, Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook), won’t be back, DEA agent Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal) is still on the job and has enlisted the help of American and Colombian law enforcement to take the Cali Cartel down. Joining him are DEA agents Chris Feistl (Michael Stahl-David – ‘Show Me a Hero’, ‘Cloverfield’) and Daniel Van Ness (Matt Whelan – ‘Coverband’, ‘Go Girls’), who enter the operation with enthusiasm but inexperience…
The new recruits need to shape up fast, as they will be facing Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela (Damian Alcazar), the leader of Cali Cartel, aka “boss of bosses”; Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela (Francisco Denis), who is the brains behind the rise of the of Cali Cartel and Gilberto’s brother; Pacho Herrera (Alberto Ammann), the on-the-low hitman who runs the Mexican connection and international distribution; And Chepe Santacruz Londono (Pepe Rapazote), who runs the satellite NYC empire of the Colombian drug network.
Other new characters include Jorge Salcedo (Matias Varela), Cali’s head of security who prioritises his wife and kids’ protection over his bosses; Franklin Jurado (Miguel Angel Silvestre), who is 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.
This time around, all rules have changed for the narcos and their opponents… A fact many won’t realise until it’s too late.
‘Narcos‘ Season 3 will land on Netflix UK, Friday 1st September 2017.
