The first official teaser for Narcos: Mexico has been unveiled by Netflix today, offering just a glimpse of the chaos we should expect when the series makes its debut on the streaming service. Check it out below:
As well as allowing a look into the new world of drug trafficking we'll explore in Narcos: Mexico, the teaser reveals that the show will land on Netflix on November 16 across the globe.
This time round, the origins of the modern drug war will be explored, in a time when "the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganised confederation of independent growers and dealers."
Audiences will see the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s, with Diego Luna taking on the role of the man at the helm of the organisation, Félix Gallardo. Hoping to build an empire, the character unites traffickers, but is soon hunted by DEA agent Kiki Camarena, played by Michael Peña.
Camarena moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, and upon arrival he comes to realise that this latest assignment will be more challenging than he could have ever imagined.
As tragedy strikes, it serves as the catalyst which affects the drug trade and the war against it for many years to come.
Gaumont Television produce Narcos: Mexico for Netflix, with Eric Newman as executive producer and showrunner. José Padilha, Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard all also serve as executive producers.
Clark Freeman, Mark Kubr, Julio Cesar Cedillo, Mike Doyle and Jorge A. Jiminez all also star in the series.
Narcos: Mexico will hit Netflix across the globe on November 16, 2018.
