Contrary to reports, Diego Luna has returned for Narcos: Mexico season 3 and this time, El Chapo is also a part of the story.
Despite all the speculations that Diego Luna, who headed Narcos: Mexico for two long seasons, will not be back in the series, the trailer of Narcos: Mexico season 3 very well reveals that he is indeed a part of the franchise even now. As Felix, Diego is seen in prison. The story also brings El Chapo as one of the and probably the main antagonist to the story.
Narcos: Mexico season 2 had ended with Felix promising that there will be chaos and bloodshed. While the trailer has not yet ventured into bloodshed, we definitely see a lot of chaos among the cartel that Felix was controlling. "You will miss me," he had said when season 2 ended and that holds true for the trailer too. Amidst all the chaos, Felix, who held the cartels together, is missed a lot.
Watch the trailer here:
He plays a major role this time too but from behind-the-scenes. Felix introduces Amado Carrillo Fuentes to the story. He talks about Amado being the biggest drug trafficker in Mexico.
Interestingly, El Chapo, who has a whole series dedicated to him, also fits into the story. He comes in to destroy the cartel Felix put all efforts to build. For the uninitiated, it was the cartel itself that turned their backs on Felix and are the reason for his imprisonment.
While El Chapo ended with his life imprisonment, here, he roams around free. Thus, it hints about a time when El Chapo, too, was still trying to make a name for himself. The drug lord was very cautious later in his life but needed some achievement at the beginning which he would find by killing the most powerful druglord, which, at the moment, was the cartel in Mexico, run by the gang Felix had brought together.
Narcos: Mexico is a continuation from Narcos, which was the story of Pablo Escobar. While Pablo was ruling Mexico as a druglord, someone needed to take his place after his execution. Thus, Felix and El Chapo came into play.
Narcos: Mexico season 3 will be the last season of the series. It will be available for streaming on Netflix from November 5. El Chapo, too, can be viewed on the streaming platform.
