Now that Pablo Escobar is dead, the Agent Peña (Pedro Pascal) has more fish to fry in the third season of Netflix’s NARCOS. Netflix has released a new announcement video, photos and the plot for the new season which premieres globally on September 1. Aside from Pascal, familiar faces return as they battle to take over where Escobar left off.
"Agent Peña, how much do you know about the Cali Cartel?" In a post-Pablo Escobar world, those final words spoken in the last season of the Netflix Original Series “Narcos,” foreshadow the upcoming season’s pivot into the corrupt, powerful, and wildly profitable world of Colombia’s Cali Cartel-the biggest drug lords you’ve probably never heard of. Now that the bloody hunt for Pablo Escobar has ended, the DEA turns its attention to the richest drug trafficking organization 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. Just as Gilberto announces a bold plan to walk away from the business, DEA agent Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal) enlists the help of American and Colombian law enforcement to take it down. This season opens up a complex and ruthless world of new figures.
Here is your first look at the Cali Cartel and the official date announcement video for season 3 of Narcos.
Meet the Kings:
Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela (Damian Alcazar)- leader of Cali Cartel, “boss of bosses”
