Narcos Season 3 finally released its official trailer. Some parts of the third installment of Netflix’s drug cartel drama were filmed in New York City. Coincidentally, the trailer was also unveiled in the Big Apple.
Narcos Season 3, the drug cartel drama inspired by true events, is set after the reign of Pablo Escobar, which is why there is going to be a major shift in the storyline. With Escobar’s era coming to an end, the focus will be on the Cali Cartel and the four key people behind it. The Cali Cartel’s kings play different roles, but together, they make the cartel strong.
The third season of Narcos will look into the lives of Cali Cartel leader Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela (Damian Alcazar) and his brother, Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela (Francisco Denis), who is the brains behind the cartel’s rise to power. On-the-low hitman Pacho Herrera (Alberto Ammann), who is behind the Mexican connection and the international distribution, is another person of interest, and so is Chepe Santacruz Londono (Pepe Rapazote), who takes charge of the NYC satellite office of the cartel. Together these four individuals made the Colombian drug network thrive.
It’s going to be another emotional and action-packed season on Narcos as the story veers into various aspects of running a cartel. Aside from the kings behind the cartel, there will be other major players who will figure into the story.
