Although Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) already died in the previous season of Netflix’s crime web television series, the third season will definitely be in the works. In fact, it has been renewed through the fourth season. Viewers will now see a different story about narcotics in Colombia, especially now that the country is known for its controversial drug trades. Now, fans will know who is going to take over the dirty narcotics business.

Netflix dropped the show’s first official trailer

Now that Escobar is gone, "Narcos" Season 3 is going to feature the story of the Cali kingpin Gilberto Rodriguez (Damian Alcazar).

However, showrunner Eric Newman explained that the famous narco-terrorist will not be directly replaced.

The new chapter will just focus on the Cali Cartel which is known for being “the most powerful crime syndicate in history” per the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). “From the beginning when we decided to call the show Narcos and not Pablo Escobar, I had always had in mind to tell the continuing story of cocaine,” he told the Hollywood Reporter.

He went on to explain that they originally wanted to tell the story of the drug war in Colombia and to avoid featuring a tale of one person or an organization. He also added that they never intended to replace Escobar, but just to go deeper into the systematic effects of cocaine and corruption that had been brought to the country.

The third installment’s official cast

As Escobar is now gone, Moura will not be seen in “Narcos” Season 3. But, Pedro Pascal will be definitely back as DEA agent Javier Pena. Michael Stahl-David will play another DEA agent named Chris Feistl and the New Zealand actor Matt Whelan will be his DEA pal Daniel Van Ness.

Damian Alcazar, too, will return as Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela while Francisco Denis will play as his brother Miguel. Pacho Herrera will still be seen in the show as Alberto Ammann. Other stars coming are Arturo Castro as David Rodriguez and Kerry Bishé as an American woman named Christina.
