'Narcos: Mexico' on Netflix Nov. 16, Watch the Trailer

The best drug-themed TV show returns for a fourth season on Netflix. Narcos: Mexico goes back to the '80s when the Guadalajara cartel ruled the country's drug trade and DEA agent Kiki Camarena was killed by the cartel. Michael Peña (Cesar Chavez, American Hustle) plays Camarena and Mexican actor Diego Luna (Y Tu Mamá Tambien, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) portrays cartel leader Félix Gallardo. The 10 episodes will be available Nov. 16.

None of the cast members from the previous seasons, which were set in Colombia, are featued in Season 4. Seasons 1 and 2 focuses on the reign of Pablo Escobar's Medellin cartel and the goverement's desperate attempts to capture him and dismantle the cartel; he's eventually killed at the end of Season 2. Season 3 shifts to the Cali cartel, which took over the country's illegal cocaine business after Escobar's fall.

Filmed like a movie, Narcos is high-level TV. It's violent, but rich in details of the lives involved in the dangerous trade. This season marks the Mexican cartels' transition from marijuana production to transporting cocaine into the U.S.
