Narcos fans are probably ecstatic that Wagner Moura is once again part of the spinoff series Narcos: Mexico. However, Moura will not be involved in the on-screen TV show. Instead, the actor who portrayed the infamous drug lord Pablo Escobar has returned to the franchise to direct two important episodes. Moura’s directorial work can now be seen on Netflix.
Third and final season of Narcos: Mexico recently dropped on the streaming service. The successor to Narcos stars Diego Luna as the Mexican King Félix Gallardo. In addition, spin-off includes Michael Peña as DEA agent trying to stop Gallardo’s reign. Narcos: Mexico Showrunner Carlo Bernard seemed more than happy to get Moura in to direct.
Bernard said Moura brought an “aesthetic through in a way that is really cool but also fits in with the other episodes.” Some Narcos fans can grieve that the franchise is apparently over. If so, fear not. Netflix has lots of other bingeable TV shows that you can enjoy.
Breaking Bad franchise

Instead of a rags-to-riches story like Pablo Escobar, we get to see the fall of suburban schoolteacher Walter White in Breaking Bad.
With pleasure Narcos, when Walter breaks down in this TV show, he has to deal with the pressure by delivering drug cartels and bypassing the DEA. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is as complicated a character as Pablo Escobar or Félix Gallardo. While White commits heinous crimes, he does so for the sake of his family. All five captivating seasons can be streamed on Netflix.
Like many major TV series, Breaking Bad has an expanded universe. Netflix offers the spinoff series Rather call Saul, which tells of the rise of Walter’s lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk). Before he becomes Saul, we see attorney Jimmy McGill fighting to make ends meet. Like White, McGill turns to his dark side to find success in a cruel world.
