“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,” Netflix explains in a statement. Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire.”
By the sounds of things, Luna will play a very different kind of drug baron both to Pedro Pascal’s Pablo Escobar in seasons one and two and the Cali Cartel leaders in season three.
A release from Netflix describes his character as “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.”
