I am a fan of the ‘Narcos’ series. I mean it was different from other TV shows when it was launched back in 2016. It stayed strong throughout the course of its 3 seasons and was able to amass a huge fan following who just craved to see more of the stuff. After season 3, Narcos was launched as Narcos: Mexico which premiered on November 16, 2018. Season 4 of Narcos is essentially Narcos: Mexico Season 1, the filming for which would have had begun sooner if the unfortunate event, the murder of location scout Carlos Muñoz Portal, hadn’t happened. The casts and crews were relatively worried about their safety. The filming began only when it was assured that it will be safe to do so.
Narcos Cast: Who is in it?
Now here is the main gist. There are talks of the entire casting of ‘Narcos’ getting a reset. Given how its previous seasons ended and the speculations about the location of the upcoming season, it is safe to assume there will be a completely new cartel for the law to deal with. Also, there have been two confirmed new castings consisting of Ant-Man star Michael Pena and Rogue One star Diego Luna, though there has been no elaboration about their characters. Since the location is set in Mexico City, Mexico we might not see any follow-up on Javier Pena, played by Pedro Pascal, the main character until now. We are still waiting for confirmation about other casts and their role.
Narcos Plot: What is it about?
Whatever be the case we can all be assured that this upcoming season of ‘Narcos’ will have a new storyline. Given that the reign of Escobar ended in the first two seasons and the third season dealt with the ‘Cali’ cartel, there isn’t much room for the storyline to continue in that direction. There are talks about the new season being set in Mexico. The new cartel to be introduced is possible ‘Guadalajara’ cartel, active in the 70s and 80s. So, this means that it is a time travel to the past since season 3 ended somewhere in the nineties. Hopefully, this season too will provide us with the nail-biting fun of its predecessor.
