Netflix has yet to announce Narcos: Mexico Season 3. But as the previous season ended with a major cliffhanger, fans are confident there is more to come. In fact, there seems to be a hint that Bad Bunny will be a part of it.
Narcos: Mexico Season 3 still has a lot of stories to tell. There is no shortage of the history of the drug war in Mexico. So, a new character, played by Bad Bunny, may come in.
A new character to join the new season
The Rolling Stone cover story of the rapper revealed that the 26-year-old Puerto Rican singer was part of the show’s new season. Suzy Exposito wrote that after he joined Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, and J-Balvin at the Superbowl halftime show, he quickly went to Mexico. There, he started shooting as a supporting actor for the Netflix crime series.
However, the production made a full stop due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Maybe I needed the rest!” he said. The article then continued that he was hoping to continue shooting later this year.
According to Remezcla, the news did not only confirm Bad Bunny’s part in Narcos: Mexico Season 3, but it also proved that the new season is now in the works. Hence, a new story about the show is coming in.
Now, fans only have to wait what character the Puerto Rican superstar is going to play. The show already has some of the best Latino actors, like the likes of Diego Luna, Michael Peña, Pedro Pascal, and Wagner Moura. So, the addition of Bad Bunny is, surely, worth waiting for.
So, what will happen in the next season?
The previous season ended with Felix (Diego Luna), telling Walt (Scoot McNairy) that his capture only caused a bigger problem.
“Now you’ll see what happens when the cage breaks open and all the animals run free,” he said. This seems to mean that more stories are about to come in Narcos: Mexico Season 3.
In an interview with the show’s executive producer Eric Newman with TV Guide, he said that this statement meant that they only “swallowed the spider to catch the fly.”
“We all know how that ends; it just continues to accelerate into the chaos, which is very much the theme of this season,” he explained. “To end with a moment where you realize we’ve accomplished nothing except for unleashing these animals, for the most part, [allows us to] begin the next chapter in the drug war, over which we’ll have less control than we had previously.”
Now that Gallardo is in jail, Amado Carrillo Fuentes (José María Yazpik) could be the new drug lord. Netflix has yet to announce when Narcos: Mexico Season 3 will be out, but fans expect to see it next year.
