It’s not quite a streaming service hooked up to your eyeballs, but if there’s one thing Netflix subscribers have clamored for, its the ability to watch TV and movies on occasions where internet connections aren’t explicitly available. So it is, that Netflix will now let viewers download its programs at no extra cost.
Netflix’s Narcos is going to look very different by the time Season 3 premieres in 2017; not solely for the absence of Pablo Escobar and the Medellin Cartel, but also a number of fresh faces. Latest to join the Colombian drug war is that of Halt & Catch Fire star Kerry Bishé, and a Broad City fan-favorite.
Netflix’s Narcos made clear shortly after Season 2 that the story would continue for at least two more years, but less certain was the historical tenure of its leading roles. We know Pedro Pascal will return, but for the moment Season 3 has confirmed a Cloverfield star and more in its new cast.
We knew that Netflix’s Narcos would eventually say goodbye to Pablo Escobar, we just didn’t know it would be so soon! The drug-trafficking drama has already moved on, starting production on Season 3 with the first official photo.
Only a few short years ago, Netflix had in mind to double its roster of original programming by 2016. That goal has more or less been achieved, with something new debuting practically every Friday, so what’s next? Why, launching even more originals, to the point they make up 50% of the streaming service’s offerings, per Netflix brass.
The second season of Netflix’s Narcos made its fair share of deviations from history, even if it ultimately arrived at a fateful end for Pablo Escobar. A two-season renewal since has cemented that Netflix plans to continue the story, but what of lead Boyd Holbrook, whose character left Colombia soon after?
Netflix Narcos fans had good reason to wonder if, and how the series might continue without its central focus on Pablo Escobar, though the release of Season 2 gave a pretty definitive answer on that front. Now, the renewed focus is assured with a two-season order, along with confirmation of the new Narcos villain.
Netflix Narcos viewers run a divide between those who know Pablo Escobar’s historical fate, and those spoiled by cavalier Season 2 promotion. Now, Season 2 bosses explain the Titanic influence on Season 2's surprising end, and how some lingering mystery might inform Season 3.
It’s a fine line to draw, between actual history and dramatized spoilers, but Netflix’s Narcos seems to have abandoned any and all pretense of a major date with destiny going down in Season 2. That said, the new trailer and poster pivot into a very different kind of mystery instead – who pulled the trigger?
Whether or not Pablo Escobar has a certain date with destiny lined up in the second season of Netflix’s Narcos, he sure isn’t getting there without a fight. Chaos descends into Colombia with Pablo on the run in the first full trailer for Narcos Season 2, ahead of its September premiere.
