Viewers are clearly addicted to Narcos, Netflix's cocaine industry epic.


The easiest way to tell if a Netflix show has been a hit is to see how long it takes the company to announce another season. And, in the case of Narcos, the show centering around renowned drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, it's only taken Netflix one week after Season 2's premiere to confirm that Seasons 3 and 4 have been commissioned.

However, with the new seasons comes a new focus with the show's makers moving away from Escobar in order to examine the wider global cocaine business and its impact on modern life. Jose Padilha and Eric Newman will continue to serve as executive producers of the series. The episode count for the additional seasons is not revealed yet, reports IANS.

Ahead of the premiere of season two, Newman, the third show runner on the drama, shared that viewers would see the death of Escobar and Moura's exit, prompting questions over whether the series would continue without its star.


Speaking to media, ahead of the second season's premiere, Padilha and Newma said, “We’ll stop when the drug trade stops,” Independent.co.uk reported. “We’ll stop when you stop. That’s our pact with America,” Newman added.
