Luna will be able to focus on other future projects such as the Disney + series of “Star Wars” about the character of Cassian Andor that the Mexican embodied in the movie “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
Netflix confirmed that Narcos: Mexico will have a third season and in which the Mexican star, Diego Luna, will not appear.
The Moonrise of this series could be sensed after the end of the second season of “Narcos: México”, in which his character, the famous and terrible drug trafficker Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, ended up behind bars.
With “Narcos: Mexico” already in the rearview mirror, Luna will be able to focus on other future projects such as the Disney + series of “Star Wars” about the character of Cassian Andor that the Mexican embodied in the movie “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ”(2016).
As for the horizon of Narcos: Mexico , Scoot McNairy, known for “Halt and Catch Fire” (2014-2017), will return in the third season of this series about the intrigues and struggles of drug trafficking in Mexico.

McNairy plays Walt Breslin, a DEA agent who is the narrator of Narcos: México and who in the second season was the great enemy of Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo.
Along with McNairy, the actors José María Yazpik, Alberto Ammann, Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Hermosillo, Matt Letscher, Manuel Masalva, Alejandro Edda and Gorka Lasaosa will also participate in the new episodes .
“Set in the 1990s, when the globalization of the drug business unleashed, season three examines the war that breaks out after Felix's empire is broken, ” Netflix said in a statement.
“As newly independent cartels try to survive political turmoil and escalating violence, a new generation of Mexican leaders emerges. But in this war, the truth is the first victim and each arrest, murder and demolition only further moves away the final victory … ”, he added.
One of the novelties of the new Narcos: Mexico episodes is that they will feature Carlo Bernard as “showrunner” (head of a series) replacing Eric Newman , one of the main brains of both “Narcos: Mexico” and the previous “Narcos” (2015-2017).
“I am grateful for my five years at the helm of 'Narcos' and 'Narcos: Mexico' and I am immensely proud of what this spectacular team has achieved with these series,” Newman said today.
“Carlo Bernard is the first person I spoke to about this project, about ten years ago, and I am extremely delighted to leave the third season steering wheel in his very competent hands,” he added.
Another incentive of the new episodes will be the participation of Wagner Moura as director of two chapters.
Moura played Pablo Escobar in all three seasons of “Narcos”, one of Netflix's first global hits and a series that dissected the drug business in Colombia before making the leap in 2018 to Mexican lands and becoming the current ” Narcos: Mexico ”.
