Narcos: Mexico trailer confirms November 16th release date

Netflix is revamping Narcos and renaming it Narcos: Mexico, with the action moving away from the show’s usual hub of Colombia. The first relocated season will arrive on November 16th, and you can watch the trailer right now.

This first-look teaser trailer offers a brief taste of what the series will entail, and it’s available to view here…

The trailer doesn’t waste any time showing off the impressive new cast for Narcos: Mexico – the opening frames feature Ant-Man‘s breakout star Michael Pena, who is swiftly followed on screen by Rogue One alum Diego Luna.

The official Netflix media centre offers this teaser of the plot:

“Shifting away from Colombia, where Narcos spent three seasons, Narcos: Mexico will explore the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers.

“Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.”
