Netflix has given a two-season renewal of its drug trade drama series Narcos. Season 3 will be released in 2017. The pickup comes on the heels of last Friday’s release of the series’ second season, which wrapped the show’s original storyline with the death of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar.
José Padilha (Elite Squad, RoboCop) and Eric Newman (Children of Men) will continue to serve as executive producers of the series, produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix. Narcos, which went through showrunner changes between its first and second season, has been among Netflix’s most popular original series, and continued to garner strong reviews for Season 2.
This is a rare multi-season renewal by Netflix. The Internet network recently picked up flagship drama Orange Is the New Black for 3 more seasons.
