First look At Narcos Series 4 Plot And Characters Revealed

It's been just under a year since Narcos last transported us from our living rooms to the heart of the Colombian cocaine trade but the wait is nearly over.

Season four of the Netflix original is set to air later this year and as excitement grows details have begun to emerge concerning new characters and plot details.

First off, there are going to be some major changes. While the first three seasons of the show focused on the drug war in Colombia, both pre and post Pablo, the new instalment will be turning our attention towards Mexico.

Netflix has now confirmed that the series will be returning as Narcos: Mexico and will chart the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s.

The new series is to follow events as Felix Gallardo (Luna) takes the helm of the Mexican drug cartel and begins to build an empire.

Meanwhile, DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Pena) brings his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, which he soon discovers will be more dangerous and challenging than he could have imagined.

"The origins of the Guadalajara cartel are in the late 1970s and early 1980s, so Narcos is going back in time," showrunner Eric Newman had confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter when Pena's and Luna's casting was announced.

"We always knew that we would get to Mexico eventually.

"A key team comprised of myself and the guys I really trust and work very closely with have been discussing how to best transition to Mexico as early as season two.

"We decided on the Guadalajara cartel because it represents the beginning of the modern Mexican drug trade. It makes sense to start there.

"The design was always to finish out the Colombian story and the players that we've come to know there, and then start anew in Mexico."

In 2017, a location scout for the show was shot dead in Mexico while out looking for suitable places to film.

Carlos Muñoz Portal, 37, was found dead in his car in a notoriously violent region of central Mexico, 60km from Mexico City.

Netflix said in a statement at the time: "We are aware of the passing of Carlos Muñoz Portal, a well-respected location scout, and send our condolences to his family.

"The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate."
