The reboot of Netflix original series Narcos will explore the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots in Mexico. Michael Pena and Diego Luna will play Kiki Camarena and Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, respectively, in Narcos: Mexico.
After spending three seasons in Colombia, internationally popular drug-trafficking drama Narcos is heading to Mexico to explore the rise of the Guadalajara cartel. Narcos: Mexico stars Michael Peña and Diego Luna, who play undercover DEA agent Kiki Camarena and Guadalajara cartel leader Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, respectively.
According to a statement by Netflix, Narcos: Mexico will show us “the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.”
