Story Till Now (Sneak Peek into Season 1 & Season 2)
The story is narrated by Scott McNairy, whose narration made it possible for us to understand the Series so well.
The Series revolves around the early origins of the Mexican Drug War, also called a Biological War. The story is set in the late 1980s, where on the one hand, the Mexican Army raids in the countryside of Sinaloa, and on the other hand, an aspiring driving police officer named Miguel Angel Félix Gallardo is determined to build a Drug Empire Guadalajara Cartel.
Meanwhile, a young Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Agent named Kiki Camarena arrives as he is being transferred. He, along with his wife and a young son, moved from California to Guadalajara Cartel. The moment he joins in his new post, he learns about the challenges and risks he would face in his assignment. The challenges and hazards are life-threatening and unimaginably dangerous.
Unfortunately, Kiki Camarena was tortured to death by the allies of Gallardo during his mission. To seek vengeance from Gallardo and his companions, a new DEA agent Walt Breslin forms a new small covert team of operatives who would track down the activities of Gallardo and his subordinates.
When Will Narcos: Mexico Season 3 Get Released?
Everything else is going fine apart from one thing, “COVID.” The worst-hit pandemic last year had stopped everything along with the Production. If COVID weren’t an issue, then we would have got the news of Narcos: Mexico Season 4 instead of Season 3.
Netflix renewed Season 3 last year in November 2020, but due to the imposition of Lockdown and some important changes in the plan, the Production was delayed. The Good News is that it is a Wrap-up for the Production of Season 3, and we might expect the Series to drop anytime by the end of this year or in the first quarter of 2022. Unfortunately, there’s no such confirmation yet.
Official Teaser Trailer Released
As of now, it is only confirmed about the Wrap-Up in Production. You may see many Youtube channels posting thumbnails with Teaser and Trailer, but that’s all erroneous. No Official Teaser Trailer has been released. We may expect it to be released by October to December 2021. There was only a release of a 45 minutes Teaser long back nine months ago.
Expected Plot for Narcos: Mexico Season 3
We all know that the story of Miguel Angel Félix Gallardo is over as of now. But something more deadly awaits in Season 3.
Now about our predictions:-
All the acquired power and influence of Miguel Angel Félix Gallardo go all in vain, and the entire kingdom gets dismantled in a few fell plunges. When Walt Breslin, the newly appointed DEA agent, met Gallardo at the jail, we got to know the reality that the DEA and all the law enforcement bodies will face without Gallardo. Gallardo was right; if all the plazas had been working together unanimously, then there wouldn’t have been a fall in their kingdom. They would have still made billions and billions of dollars.
As Gallardo’s chapter is over, every plaza works independently with a motive to make money and eventually fights among themselves. Many action-packed manoeuvres would be seen when each unit of Cartel will fight for their survival. Félix was the one who ensured peace and stability in Mexico. Now only bloodshed and war will be seen.
Now, as Miguel Angel Félix Gallardo is imprisoned, there will be the need for another antagonist, and it will be none other than El Chapo” Guzmán. El Chapo was once the leader of the Sinaloan Cartel. He is now serving his punishment in the jail of the USA. Under the leadership of El Chapo, Sinaloa became the richest and powerful Cartel in Mexico.
This edition of the series, The Return of El Chapo, will be seen following the Great War on Drugs.
