Try To Be Chill About It But There Are Going To Be Two More Seasons Of 'Narcos'

*Seriously mate you've been warned...*

Pablo Escobar might be dead but Netflix drama Narcos will continue beyond the death of the drug kingpin.

The show has been recommissioned for a third and fourth season, moving beyond its roots following the rise and fall of Escobar's cartel.

The number of episodes in each series is yet to be confirmed, but the third season will be made available some time in 2017.

Showrunner Eric Newman, who is an executive producer on the show with José Padilha, said that the drama was never intended to focus solely on the Medellín cartel.

"Narcos is about cocaine, and cocaine continues beyond Escobar," he told the Hollywood Reporter. "I'll go as long as they'll let me go. There's a reason why we call this show Narcos and not Pablo Escobar. It's very much about the trade."

The first series saw Escobar's ruthless rise and the pursuit to catch him by US DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña. The second season, made available on Netflix last Friday, shows the killing of the Colombian drug lord as his power wanes.
