The thing about drug kingpins is that if you take one down, there is pretty much always going to be another one ready to rise up and take his or her place atop the big white powdery mountain.Narcos 3 premieres on Netflix on September 1st.
Netflix original Narcos has spent two seasons chronicling Colombia’s battle with drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. But the explosive season 2 finale ended with, Escobar being unceremoniously executed. Many assumed that with him out of the picture, Narcos had reached the end of its natural lifespan. So when Netflix made the decision to renew it for a further two seasons, fans reacted with surprise.
What to anticipate from NARCOS 3 trailer
Narcos 3 will focus on the rise of the Cali Cartel — a cocaine empire run by the brothers Miguel Orejuela and Gilberto Orejuela out of Cali, Colombia — which generated billions of dollars a year, and became one of the largest drug trafficking organizations the world has ever seen.With the release of season 3 trailer, it looks as though the Orejuela clan and their Cali cartel, formerly just one of many groups hungry for El Padrino’s head, is going to take center stage.
The teaser shows the Calis becoming the new top dogs in town. With series backbone Officer Javier Pena (Pedro Pascal) returning as a reformer against the murderous and vicious drug gangs. Even so, you might think that nothing can compare with the brutality of Escobar. Netflix is clearly thinking the same way, eager to point out in the teaser that “To pretend that these guys weren’t just as evil as the guy that came before them, that’s a mistake.”
Presumably, the Cali cartel will continue to be the focus until the show’s finale. That is currently assumed to be at the end of season 4. But, There’s more than enough material in the drug war to work with.
