Narcos forever? Netflix has yet to officially renew the crime drama for Season 3, but showrunner Eric Newman has no intention of stopping any time soon.
Speaking to THR, Newman looks ahead into the show’s “distant” future seasons:
Imagine the episode of some distant season where Chapo Guzman’s son is kidnapped out of a restaurant. He’s kidnapped and I thought for sure they would kill him but they let him go. That just goes to show you how much power that guy has. They’ll kidnap his son, but they won’t kill the son. El Chapo is still feared even by these new Mexican cartels that have sprung up that are even crazier than the old cartels. La Familia Michoacana and the new Jalisco Generation and Los Zetas make names for themselves by being more violent than their predecessors and even these new groups that want to make their mark are not willing to kill El Chapo’s son. They’re too afraid of what will come down on them if they do.
I love this world. I’ve always been fascinated by it. I grew up in Los Angeles and I watched it happen, to some extent. I’ll go as long as they’ll let me go.
Stay tuned as we continue monitoring the status of Narcos Season 3 renewal…
