Narcos is one of the grittiest shows Netflix has ever produced, and it’s back for its third season.

Here’s all you need to know about Narcos season 3.

Where Narcos le​ft off


Narcos tells the true story of how Colombia became the cocaine capital of the world. Seasons 1 and 2 focused on how Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar was able to dominate the Colombian drug cartel and cocaine market and export his trade internationally – with particular demand in the US.

His drug-dealing prowess made him one of the world’s wealthiest men and his legacy has become the stuff of legends.

In season 1, as drug lord Pablo Escobar rises, Colombian and US law enforcement agencies find themselves battling an enemy who will do anything to keep his empire.

In season 2, the Escobars cope with the challenges of life on the run. Pablo's enemies team up against him and the Search Bloc's tactics become increasingly dubious.

What is Narcos: Season 3 about?


Season 3 of Narcos will focus on how the Cali Cartel took over Colombia’s cocaine trade and used police and political bribery on a global scale to achieve near total command over this highly profitable yet highly illegal industry.

This will pose a whole new set of challenges and obstacles for returning DEA agent Javier Pena, who now must track and attempt to expose not one but four drug godfathers – each of whom are far savvier and sophisticated in covering their tracks than the enigmatic Escobar ever was.

Who’s in it?

Pedro Pascal returns as the main DEA agent Javier Pena and Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela (played by Damian Alcazar), who we were introduced to in season 2 as the head of the Cali Cartel, is also back.

We will also meet the remaining power players of the Cali Cartel, which include Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela (played by Francisco Denis), Pacho Herrera (played by Alberto Ammann), Jorge Salcedo (played by Matias Varela) and Chepe Santacruz Londono (played by Pepe Rapazote).

When is it on?

All three seasons of Narcos are available to watch on Netflix now.
