Netflix's Narcos to get seasons three and four

Narcos: Complete Season 1

Story by Jack Foley

NETFLIX has confirmed that Narcos has been confirmed for two more seasons.

That means the critically-acclaimed drugs drama will continue beyond the story of Pablo Escobar.

Jose Padilha and Eric Newman will continue to serve as executive producers of the series.

The first season of Narcos chronicled the rise of Escobar (played by Wagner Moura), while the sophomore run chronicled his fall and eventual death.

However, Newman maintains that the drama, which is based on true events, was never intended to be just about the Medellin cartel and its leader.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: “Narcos is about cocaine and cocaine continues beyond Escobar. I’ll go as long as they’ll let me go.”

“There’s a reason why we call this show Narcos and not Pablo Escobar,” he continued. “It’s very much about the trade. There are other drug dealers and there are alliances formed against Pablo [in season two], so there are a multitude of stories we could tackle.”

Indeed, the end of season two of Narcos saw the rise of the Cali cartel, a crime organization that, at the height of its reign, was responsible for 90% of the world’s cocaine market.
