Hold on to your seats, Narcos fans! The hit Netflix series is expanding with a new spin-off centered around the infamous Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán.
Developed by Gaumont Television, the same company that produced Narcos and Narcos: Mexico, the show promises to deliver the same level of action-packed drama that the franchise is known for.
Alejandro Edda, who played El Chapo in the previous series, is reportedly in talks to reprise his role, bringing the iconic character back to life on screen.
Netflix’s original series Narcos was a huge hit, and it quickly established itself as a must-watch for anyone who enjoys gritty gangster drama. The original lasted for three seasons, and told the story of infamous drug lords and the DEA agents that worked to stop them.
Narcos El Chapo Spin-off Plot
Following the events of Narcos: Mexico, the new series will explore the aftermath of the power struggles that ensued following the demise of the Mexican cartel’s key players. Amidst the chaos, El Chapo emerged as one of the most dangerous and wealthiest figures in cartel history, despite being imprisoned.
The series will delve into El Chapo’s rise to power, including his escape from prison and ongoing battles with rival cartels before his eventual capture in 2014. With the first season set to cover 15 years of his life, there’s no doubt that the new spin-off will be filled with gripping scenes of blood, drugs, and high-stakes drama.
Where Will the Story Pick Up?
The new series will pick up from where Narcos: Mexico left off, with key figures in the Mexican cartels either dead, imprisoned, or facing new threats to their positions of power. In contrast, El Chapo was still able to hold on to his control over the Sinaloa cartel, making him one of the wealthiest and most dangerous men in the history of the cartels.
El Chapo’s Wealth and Power
During his time as a fugitive, El Chapo was estimated to have assets worth over $12.6 billion, making him one of the richest men in Mexico. He was able to maintain his power and influence in the Sinaloa cartel, becoming a legendary figure in the world of drug trafficking.
Fans of the Narcos franchise can’t wait for the new El Chapo spin-off series, which promises to be as thrilling and addictive as its predecessors. With Alejandro Edda’s potential return and Gaumont Television’s proven track record, viewers can expect nothing short of excellence. Stay tuned for more updates on the release date and the cast of the show.
