Netflix announced this week that the critically praised series will return for a third and fourth season on the streaming video service, with executive producers José Padilha (Elite Squad) and Eric Newman (Children of Men) continuing to shepherd the gritty show chronicling the early days of America’s war against the drug trade of the 1980s.
Along with confirming the return of the series, Netflix also released a new teaser trailer for the third season of the show.
Set and filmed in Colombia, Narcos stars Elite Squad actor Wagner Moura as Pablo Escobar, one of the most infamous cocaine kingpins of the era. Moura is joined in the cast by Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña, respectively, a pair of real-life agents who were tasked with bringing down Escobar in the ’80s.
The first season of Narcos was released on Netflix in August 2015, with the second 10-episode season premiering just a few days ago.
The series has already been nominated for a Writers Guild of America Award and multiple Golden Globe Awards (including a “Best Actor — Television Series Drama” nomination for Moura) for its first season.
The first two seasons of Narcos are available to watch now on Netflix, and can be screened in Ultra HD 4K. There’s no official word yet on when the third season of Narcos will debut on Netflix.
