The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reports that Michael Stahl-David and Matt Whelan have signed up for series regular roles for the upcoming third season of Netflix series Narcos.
Set and filmed in Columbia, the series had us follow notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar over the course of the first two seasons, who became a billionaire through the production and distribution of cocaine, while also focusing on Escobar’s interactions with drug lords, DEA agents, and various opposition entities. It’s believed the third season will have us focus on the Cali Cartel.
Michael Stahl-David will be playing the role of Chris Feistl, a young American DEA Agent who sought out assignment to Columbia as the drug trade shifts to the Cali Cartel’s takeover in the wake of Pablo Escobar’s death. Matt Whelan will be playing the role of his partner, Daniel Van Ness, who is more straight-edge and serious agent out of the two. Pedro Pascal will be returning as Javier Pena, though Netflix is yet to confirm the return of Boyd Holbrook’s Steve Murphy.
Narcos Season 3 will be available on Netflix sometime in 2017.
