Netflix Just Dropped the First Look at Michael Peña and Diego Luna in Narcos, and OMG
In its first three seasons, Narcos deals with the war on drugs in Colombia — first with Pablo Escobar and then with the Cali Cartel. When the third season of Narcos ends, however, the final scene shows a man crossing the border into Mexico on a boat, hinting at what the theme and setting of the next season would be. Thanks to that last bit of footage, we know the upcoming season will deal with the war on drugs in Mexico. Netflix recently confirmed our suspicions by releasing more information about season four, and we're already counting down until it premieres (which should be sometime this year). Keep reading to find out everything we know about Narcos: Mexico so far.
