Netflix has already renewed its hit and critically acclaimed franchise Narcos’s spin-off series, Narcos: Mexico, back in October 2020. Narcos: Mexico is a crime drama series that Doug Miro and Chris Brancato created. The series initially planned to release the fourth season of Narcos; however, due to other drug lords’ prominence and how the DEA and other intelligence agencies stopped their rackets, the creators decided to go ahead with the spin-off Narco: Mexico.
In the first season, talented actors like Michael Pena and Diego Luna have already made their mark with their characters in Narcos: Mexico. The fans and critics both loved the characters and premise. Narcos: Mexico’s second season dropped last year on February 13, 2020, whereas the first season was released sometime in late 2018.
