Narcos Season 4 is officially titled Narcos: Mexico and it's going to put the focus on the start of the modern day drug war by taking everything back to its roots. The new season is set in 1980s Mexico with the Guadalajara Cartel led by Felix Gallardo, who is played by Diego Luna. Gallardo is attempting to unify trackers to build a vast empire. Along with the new cartel and new setting, Netflix has also announced that the hit show is returning on November 16th.

Narcos Season 4 is taking things back in time with Michael Pena as Kiki Camarena, an undercover DEA agent embedded in Guadalajara, instead of Pedro Pascal raging against Pablo Escobar in Columbia and later, the Cali Cartel. Camarena moves his family from California to Guadalajara and quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he previously thought. As Pena's Camarena gets deeper into his mission, it starts a chain of events that affect the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.

The trailer for /narcos-season-4-trailer-diego-luna-michael-pena/Narcos Season 4 teases a lot of action and intensity, but doesn't give away a whole lot about the story. However, it looks like fans of the first three seasons of the hit Netflix show will be on board this time around as well. It adds a new chapter to the story that many already know, and brings in some new talented actors to do so. In addition to Michael Pena and Diego Luna, Season 4 also stars Aaron Staton, Alejandro Edda, and Jose Maria Yazpik, who is reprising his role as Amado Carrillo Fuentes.

Taking a show as successful as Narcos and changing the formula is a bit of a risky move for Netflix, especially since the third season was so well-received. Season 3 was told through the eyes of Pedro Pascal's Javier Pena, which fans and critics praised the show for. Narcos stepped up the evolution of the show, setting it up for its latest season, giving it the biggest makeover yet, with some going as far as to call it a reboot. The historical ties to the beginning of the drug trade in Season 4 already has the makings of another hit season.

Since Narcos Season 4 is only a few months away, it's time to clear the weekend of November 16th so that a binge session can go down to properly watch all of the episodes. In the meantime, it might be a good idea to go back to the previous three seasons to brush up and get prepared to get taken back in time. And since this first trailer was more of a tease, Netflix will hopefully be adding a lot more to the promotional campaign over the next several weeks.
