"From the start, Narcos was a story about one thing: The rise of notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, and the years-long effort to bring him down. Across two violent, riveting seasons, Narcos did just that—at first swiftly, as its first season chronicled Escobar's meteoric ten-year rise and reign; then taking its time, as Season Two chronicled his final days. Now, with its take on Escobar's story told, Narcos' third season pivots to the cartel that rose to fill the vacuum Escobar's death left behind, and the joint Colombian and DEA effort to dismantle it."READ MORE
"'Narcos' has never been a simple show to process, especially for someone not embedded in this universe — there are many players, many complications, speaking in many languages, operating decades ago.
But it is one of the great examples of shows that have improved thanks to the opportunity to grow and evolve, and Season 3 continues that journey with an investment in human storytelling."
