It made headlines all around with the two dramatic and thrilling seasons which depicted the life story of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. But at the end of season two, the series concluded his story and potentially the series. Right? Wrong! Escobar’s story may be over but that doesn’t mean that cocaine stopped coming out of Colombia. The series is set to explore the post-Escobar Colombia wherein, the Cali cartel took over the cocaine business and ran the whole operation like a Fortune 500 company. Fascinating to see what Javier Pena does with the CIA! Season 3 will premiere on September 1, 2017.
