WATCH: A new cartel powerhouse rises in ‘Narcos’ season 3 trailer
The second season of Netflix’ critically acclaimed crime-drama series “Narcos” featured the death of the world’s biggest drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (played by Wagner Moura). With the dreaded Medellin Cartel now a thing of the past, a new dynasty has taken over as the world’s biggest narcotics empire.
Much to the delight of binge-watchers everywhere, a trailer for the much-anticipated third season of “Narcos” debuted on Thursday.
As seen in an action-packed two-minute teaser, Pedro Pascal returns as the savy DEA agent Javier Peña in his quest to take down the richest drug-trafficking organization in the world.
With Escobar out of the picture, the four powerful godfathers of the “Cali Cartel” took the reins of the cocaine trade and turned it into a global enterprise.
Former Escobar rivals Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela (Damian Alcazar) Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela (Francisco Denis), Pacho Herrera (Alberto Amman), and Chepe Santacruz Londono (Pepe Rapazote) emerge as this season’s primary antagonists, as they expand their empire over New York City.
“Try to go through the Cali bosses, all you’ll get are more bodies,” Peña is warned in the clip. “These guys don’t make mistakes.”
“Narcos” season 3 returns to Netflix starting Sept. 1. /ra
