“Narcos” Boss Says That Netflix Show Could “Go Forever”

People who have been following Narcos will be familiar with how its focus has changed over time. For example, the first two seasons covered the Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, culminating in him getting injured in a shootout with governmental forces and then being executed by a Colombian policeman. As a result, Season 3 had to change its focus to the Cali Cartel, which was cleared up in that same season. Based on this, it should come as no surprise to learn that Narcos will be changing focus once more, which will mean the phase-out of its previous protagonist Javier Peña played by Pedro Pascal as well.

Pedro Pascal on ‘Narcos,’ Peña’s Journey, and Working on ‘Kingsman 2’

With Narcos Season 3 about to start streaming on Netflix, I recently landed an exclusive interview with Pedro Pascal. If you’re not familiar with the show, the excellent crime drama chronicled the hunt for Pablo Escobar in its first two seasons and now that they reached the end of the infamous kingpin’s story, they’re taking on the next chapter in the rise of the Colombian drug trade — the rise of the Cali Cartel. Led by four powerful godfathers, the Cali Cartel succeeded Escobar, growing the cocaine trade into a global enterprise and forging one of the most powerful crime syndicates in the world. But unlike Escobar, who loved to dominate headlines around the world with his brutal killing of anyone that stood in his way, the Cali cartel is the polar opposite, preferring to keep its violent actions out of the headlines. During the interview Pedro Pascal talked about why he thinks people love watching shows about criminals, the way his character Javier Peña has changed as a character between the end of Season 2 and the beginning of Season 3, how much he knows about the arc of the season before filming begins, the popularity of the show around the world, the way the show gets made, how Narcos creates characters that aren’t just black and white, and a lot more. In addition, he talks about how he got involved in Matthew Vaughn Kingsman: The Golden Circle and if he still watched Game of Thrones. Check out what he had to say below. READ MORE...
