Netflix has announced that the third season of Narcos: Mexico will be its last.
The streaming service confirmed that the 90s-set crime drama is set to wrap things up in its third season, with an explosive trailer that urged viewers to “prepare for the final blow.” It also revealed that the new episodes will land on the platform on Friday, November 5.
In the clip, a voiceover can be heard alluding to a conflict that threatens to “change Mexico and drug trafficking forever.”
“War spreads like fire but no matter how fast it burns, the music keeps playing,” it continues, which is in keeping with season three’s official synopsis: “As newly independent cartels struggle to survive political upheaval and escalating violence, a new generation of Mexican kingpins emerge.
“But in this war, truth is the first casualty – and every arrest, murder and take-down only pushes real victory further away.”
Existing cast members Jose Maria Yazpik, Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Hermosillo, Matt Letscher, Manuel Masalva, Alejandro Edda, Gorka Lasaosa and Scoot McNairy are gearing up to return, alongside a whole bunch of new series regulars.
