Last month, the streamer announced that Narcos: Mexico was renewed for season three and that Carlo Bernard would take over at showrunner for Eric Newman, who remains busy with multiple other projects for Netflix.
‘I am grateful for my five years at the helm of Narcos and Narcos: Mexico, and immensely proud of what this spectacular team has achieved with these shows,’ Newman told The Hollywood Reporter late last month. ‘When we began this endeavor – making a show in two languages, in a country that had never seen this kind of production – it seemed insane. But Netflix saw its potential then and their faith in us never wavered.
‘Carlo Bernard is the first person I ever spoke to about this project, over 10 years ago, and I am extremely pleased to leave the steering of season three of Narcos: Mexico in his extremely capable hands.’
