Narcos fans, the wait is nearly over.

How do you solve a problem like Peña? Well, more specifically for the producers of Narcos, how do you replace the brilliant Pedro Pascal who has been an integral part of the beloved Netflix series?

Well, casting the brilliant Michael Peña and Diego Luna is a very good start!

If you're not up to date with Season 3 of Narcos, consider this to be your spoiler alert.

After the Cali cartel was crippled and Peña reached the end of his patience with the constant bureaucracy, you might be forgiven for thinking that the drama stops there.

Then again, if three seasons of Narcos has taught us anything, it's that the money and drugs never stop and the addictive drama continues to follow the drugs and the money as it moves into new territory, Mexico.

Narcos: Mexico will launch as a new Netflix original series later this year as the focus shifts away from Colombia.

Narcos: Mexico will explore the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganised confederation of independent growers and dealers.

Throughout the new season, we're going to witness 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.

Michael Peña will play Kiki Camarena, a family man and an undercover DEA agent who garnered valuable intel through a series of informants around Félix and his newly minted Guadalajara cartel, but quickly found himself in as he realised he had completely underestimated the sophistication of Gallardo's system.

Diego Luna will play Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (“Félix”), the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, one of the biggest narcos in the history of Mexico and the founder of the modern Mexican drug trade. Quiet but bold, inscrutable but sharp-minded, to all appearances he is a benevolent leader, loyal to his friends, associates, and employees...but his ambition comes before all else.

If it's starting in 1980 it's probably dealing with Felix Gillardo and the beginning of the Guadalajara Cartel (the 1st proper Mexican cartel). They were shipping heroin and grass to the US until Escobar's Medillan Cartel started using them to bring in Cocaine via their routes in the early 80's.
