Ahead of this year’s season four premiere, Netflix provides us with a first look at newcomers Michael Peña and Diego Luna in Narcos. For the upcoming set of episodes, the streaming service’s original series has been rebranded as Narcos: Mexico, as the narrative transitions from Colombia to Mexico.
With an all-new cast and storyline, Narcos: Mexico sees Peña and Luna on opposing ends of a drug war. The official synopsis for season four reads as follows:
“Narcos: Mexico will explore the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers. Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.”
Series creators Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard have returned to executive produce the season alongside José Padilha. Aaron Staton, Alejandro Edda, and Alfonso Dosal then feature alongside Peña and Luna throughout season four.
Narcos: Mexico is expected to arrive on Netflix before the end of 2018.
