After two popular seasons, Narcos is coming back again. Recently Narcos Season 3 spoilers is out. There are some interesting happenings stored. While fans have great hopes on the show’s new subject, there are buzzes about an important exit! Does it hint about a key character being removed from the series?
The notorious group Cali Cartel taking over in Narcos Season 3 came as a great revelation. This gang debuted in Season 2 with members Gilberto Orejuela (Damian Alcazar) and Miguel Rodriguez (Fransisco Denis) with Helmer “Pancho” Herrera (Alberto Ammann). It is expected that in the season 3, Jose Chepe Santacruz-Londono, another member of the group is expected to be introduced.

“Unlike Escobar, who had positioned himself as an outlaw, Cali was very much a part of the system. Pablo was protected by the people who loved him and Cali was protected by a political and economic system that they had rather ingeniously built,” said Eric Newman, the executive producer of the series, comparing Pablo Escobar and the Cali Cartel’s ways of running their drug trade.
There is already a kind of talks among fans that Narcos Season 3 won’t be as exciting as its previous two seasons. It is also expected to be less violent and more political compared to Season 1 and 2. At the same time as Cali Cartel’s drug smuggling activity was taken down in a couple of years, the chances are high that it is going to be featured only in one season. Thus, it might hint towards the rise of the Mexican cartel in season 4.
However, fans are still eager to know if Javier Peña who is played by Pedro Pascal in Narcos would be seen again in season 3. Pena was a key character in exploring the drug kingpin Pablo Escobar’s life. In season 2, the DEA assigned the Escobar’s case to Pena. Nevertheless, even before the drug kingpin was arrested, the agency pulled Pena back, reported Parentherald.
If one goes by the report, in real life Peña remained in the service until 2014. He confirmed that he did not take part in the Cali Cartel’s case. Does it mean that this key character is removed from the series? But Narcos season 2 gave an option for the character to come back in the next season.
Even Newman said in an interview, “I’d probably have to look at what Peña’s role would be in the Cali, in taking down Cali. I love working with Pedro Pascal, so nothing would make me happier than to be back in business with him in some way.” Can we expect Peña’s return? To know that, wait until Narcos Season 3 arrives.
