Narcos: Mexico has officially been renewed for a third season – with some major changes.
First, star Diego Luna will not be returning to the show after his character was sentenced to prison for his drug trafficking at the end of season two. Second, co-creator and long-time collaborator, Carlo Bernard, will take over showrunner duties from Eric Newman.
Eric said in a statement, “I am grateful for my five years at the helm of Narcos and Narcos: Mexico and am immensely proud of what this spectacular team has achieved with these shows. Carlo Bernard is the first person I ever spoke to about this project, over ten years ago, and I am extremely pleased to leave the steering of Season 3 of Narcos: Mexico in his very capable hands.”
Scoot McNairy, José Maria Yazpik, Alberto Ammann, Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Hermosillo, Matt Letscher, Manuel Masalva, Alejandro Edda and Gorka Lasaosa will all return for season three.
