"Narcos" Season 3 Spoilers: The Cali Cartel Takes Over 

To recall, the Cali Cartel made its debut in "Narcos" Season 2. The group is consists of brothers Gilberto Orejuela (Damian Alcazar) and Miguel Rodriguez (Fransisco Denis) with Helmer "Pancho" Herrera (Alberto Ammann). Meanwhile, the fourth honcho, Jose "Chepe" Santacruz-Londono, is expected to be introduced in "Narcos" Season 3.

 "Narcos" Season 3 showrunner, Eric Newman noted that Pablo Escober is very different from the Cali Cartel - at least when it comes to their methods.

"Unlike Escobar, who had positioned himself as an outlaw, Cali was very much a part of the system," Newman said in an interview. "While Escobar was a single-cell organism, they were a complex, multicelled organism."

Newman also added that the Cali Cartel was able to achieve what Pablo Escobar wanted, political influence. He described it as "more pervasive and more insidious." The showrunner also revealed that "Narcos" Season 3 may not be as violent as depicted in the previous one and that the series will introduce new characters that will play huge roles in the series.

Cali Cartel's Downfall In "Narcos" Season 3

Unfortunately, Cali Cartel didn't last long following the death of Pablo Escobar. The group's drug-smuggling operation was taken down in two year after the arrest of Miguel Rodriguez. Reports claim that "Narcos" Season 3 will cover and conclude the fate of Cali Cartel before moving on to a Mexican group in season 4.

"Cali was the cartel that really utilized the smuggling routes through Mexico and the Mexican heroin smugglers who were already incredibly successful," Newman revealed. "They very much got the Mexicans into the cocaine business, so there is sort of a natural evolution there. As to whether or not I would move directly into Mexico, it's certainly a possibility."

"Narcos" Season 3 New Cartel Means New Protagonist?

In "Narcos" Season 2, Boyd Holbrook a.k.a. DEA agent Steve Murphy, was the main protagonist of the show. The story is told in the first and third-person accounts. And Murphy was able to do that with his uncanny narration.

However, with Pablo Escobar dead and the emergence of Cali Cartel, it was rumored that fans will get to hear a new protagonist/ narrator, Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal).

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Newman shared how much he loves working with actor Pedro Pascal. "I love working with Pedro Pascal, so nothing would make me happier than to be back in business with him in some way," Newman said.

With his involvement with the Cali Cartel, fans are quick to speculate that Javier Peña might be the new protagonist/ narrator of the "Narcos" Season 3.
