Fans need more, although we have now had two seasons of Narcos: Mexico after three seasons of this first Narcos.
*Spoilers for Narcos: Mexico season 2 ahead.*
The season continued the story of this drug trade in 1980s Mexico and hit on our Netflix screens in February 2020. That story is far from over, and we could expect there to be a lot more seasons to come.
Season 2 reasoned using Ángel Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna), the chief of the Guadalajara cartel and founder of the Mexican drug trade, languishing in prison after being arrested for murdering DEA Agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Pena).
There was also an especially angry exchange between Gallardo and DEA Agent Walt Breslin (Scoot McNairy), which subsequently led many fans to wonder what comes next?
So will there be another season? Probably.
Is there going to be a season 3 of Narcos: Mexico?
Regrettably, Netflix hasn’t declared whether or not there will be any new episodes. There are several factors and events which suggest a third season is in the works.
It’s only that Netflix hasn’t confirmed it yet.
For one thing, Netflix will be mad not to commission more of the show. It has been an absolute hit with fans directly across the world and has proved a good earner for its services.
Showrunner Eric Newman recently told The Hollywood Reporter he would like to create more.
He said: “As I always say, we’ll go on so long as they allow us and as long as the drug war rages — that, as you know, there’s no end in sight.”
He added that he has a notion of where he wants to proceed with the story.
“I would be lying if I said I had not put a bit of thought into where we’d go. I’ve always had a pretty reasonable idea. That’s about all I can say about season three.”
There was a new Rolling Stone interview with celebrity Bad Bunny, who claimed he’d been called away to start filming for the third series of Narcos.
The musician said it was subsequently postponed as a result of the pandemic.
Finally, possibly the most critical indicator of a third-year comes.
When is Narcos: Mexico season 3 likely to come out?
When a third party series might reach our screens, it is pretty much impossible to forecast. The aforementioned COVID-19 pandemic and scheduling and TV production have played with absolute havoc.
A fourteen-month gap was between 2 and Season 1, so we might be considering April 2021 as a potential date. But with no sign of the pandemic easing, we could be looking at least another six months then; perhaps more.
