Plot Synopsis

NARCOS: MEXICO is a one-hour drama series that explores the birth of the Mexican drug war in the 1980s, chronicling the true story of the Guadalajara cartel's ascent. Beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers, this series chronicles the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel as Felix Gallardo takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment is more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Felix 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. Netflix released 10 episodes of NARCOS: MEXICO on Friday, November 16, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.

The 10-episode second season of NARCOS: MEXICO premiered on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the entire new season. Season 2 continues the story of Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo, now the Godfather of the first Mexican cartel -- the Guadalajara cartel -- as he struggles to maintain control, grow his empire, and reconcile the betrayals and sacrifices he had to make on his way to becoming El Padrino. As friction between the different "plazas" of his cartel rises, Felix's control over the situation slips. Meanwhile, the death of DEA agent Kiki Camarena at the hands of the cartel and corrupt politicians brings a hailstorm of retribution to Mexico. "Operation Leyenda" led by the dogged DEA agent Walt Breslin, whose methods aren't always by the book, targets Felix Gallardo and his chief lieutenants, adding to the instability and volatility of the cartel.
NARCOS: MEXICO returned for its third season on Friday, November 5, 2021, as Netflix released all 10 episodes of the new season. Set in the 90s, when the globalization of the drug business ignites, Season 3 examines the war that breaks out after Felix's arrest. As newly independent cartels struggle to survive political upheaval and escalating violence, a new generation of Mexican kingpins emerge. But in this war, truth is the first casualty -- and every arrest, murder and take-done only pushes real victory further away.
