Narcos Location Manager Killed

The series Narcos on Netflix is about the dangerous world of drug trafficking in Colombia, focusing on the real-life stories of drug kingpins in the late 1980s who were more than guilty of committing heinous crimes in the name of illegal entrepreneurship in the middle of the heat brought on by the war on drugs. For the next season of the show, the action was moving to Mexico, where sadly one crew member of the series has become a victim of the dangerous world of crime in the nation.

Shocking news came from across the border this weekend as Narcos season four location manager Carlos Muñoz Portal (pictured left) was found dead in a rural area outside of Mexico City, having been the victim of multiple gunshots. Find out more below.

The second season finale of Narcos told viewers what season three was going to be about. Javier Pena (Pedro Pascal) was recruited to pursue the Cali Cartel. Narcos season 3 picks up the Cali Cartel story, who celebrated the demise of their rival (and seasons 1 and 2 lead) Escobar.

Narcos show runner Eric Newman spoke with /Film by phone about the show’s third season. Newman is also producer of the upcoming Netflix original movie Bright starring Will Smith and directed by David Ayer. He’s also attached to some high profile movies with directors Jon Favreau and Matt Reeves.

Narcos Season 3 Trailer

Narcos is one of my favorite Netflix original series, but with (spoilers for real life, and thus the show) the fall of Pablo Escobar at the end of season 2, the series must move on to a new storyline. I’ve been skeptical that the Cali Cartel would provide as compelling a story as the two season Escobar arc, but a new trailer shows a lot of promise. Hit the jump to watch the Narcos season 3 trailer.

Narcos season 3 teaser

Narcos has been sitting in my Netflix queue since the day season 1 premiered, but I’ve never been inspired to watch it because I’ve seen the story of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar on screen so many times before. The excellent documentary Cocaine Cowboys, ESPN’s 30 for 30 entry The Two Escobars, heck, even one of Entourage‘s fake movies covered it. But the upcoming third season is moving beyond the well-trod Escobar saga and into new territory, and a new Narcos season 3 teaser (and a handful of new photos) show us exactly what Pedro Pascal‘s Javier Peña and the rest of the DEA are up against – plus, we can now mark our calendars for the season 3 premiere date.

Now that Netflix is beginning to announce the cast for Narcos season 3, we wonder if Boyd Holbrook‘s character agent Steve Murphy will be reuniting with Pedro Pascal‘s Javier Pena in the new season. Hit the jump to learn about four new members being added to the Narcos Season 3 cast, and let’s talk about who might be returning from the previous seasons.

Narcos season 2 trailer

Were Narcos just another crime drama, it could go on indefinitely with the story of DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña chasing after drug kingpin Pablo Escobar . But it’s bound to historical events, and the fact is that Escobar couldn’t keep running forever. As of the end of season one, the clock is running out for Escobar. Season two picks up where season one left off, and promises to take us through to the end of Escobar’s story.

Which isn’t to say it’ll be smooth sailing for our heroes from here on out. Sure, we in 2016 know what becomes of Escobar (played here by Wagner Moura). But our heroes in the show, Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) and Peña (Pedro Pascal) are still in the middle of a very intense situation. As Murphy says, “Pablo is never more dangerous than when you almost have him.” Watch the latest Narcos season 2 trailer below.  Read More »

NARCOS_207_00658R

Wagner Moura, Narcos‘ Pablo Escobar, was at the Netflix presentations for the Television Critics Association to discuss the second season. We got to speak with Moura in a roundtable about the show, which will portray the final year of Escobar’s life in season two. Moura described the differences between the first and second seasons.

“I think the first season is more epic,” Moura said. “I think Narcos has this balance of the epic and the dramatic. The first season is very epic in terms of we really explain to people how the drug trade works. We have the voiceover, the real footage. We still have the same thing. It’s the same style but the second one, given the fact that it covers only one year of Pablo’s life, it’s very focused on Pablo so it’s more dramatic than epic.”  Read More »

One time I made a joke about having never met a single person in real life who has actually watched Netflix’s crime series Narcos and I instantly regretted it. Narcos fans immediately began to emerge from the woodwork to let me know how much they enjoy the show and how I should give it a chance and so on and so forth. And since I’m fascinated by the drug war and would very much like more Pedro Pascal in my life, I think I may take them up on that suggestion.

Meanwhile, the Narcos season 2 trailer has arrived and while I’m sure it’ll get the dedicated fans properly excited, this is the exact kind of preview that helps pique my interest.
